Here are some cute miniature meals I made out of polymer clay for my friend’s daughter. I used a bunch of youtube tutorials by Toni Ellison, who makes some incredible miniatures. It was hard to decide which to make! I finally decided on a pizza, pancakes, a steak dinner, ice cream sandwiches and Chinese food. I should’ve included something in the pictures for scale. I think the plates are smaller than a quarter.
I also used my Silhouette machine to make a little box to package up the food:
I started making clay food three years ago when I wrote about The Polymer Clay Cookbook and made charms for Parker’s classmates for Valentine’s Day, and I’ve made more for birthday gifts and Christmas since then. As always, I make extras to add to Parker’s collection, because even though each little item can take a long time to make, once you have the clay out, it’s as easy to make two or three as it is to make one. He likes to set up elaborate scenes for his plastic cats, so here is his latest “restaurant.”
(This peaceful scene was ruined shortly after by a plastic canine invasion.)
