A 2.4cm high miniature chocolate pinata cake to celebrate week 15 of the polymer clay challenge. YouTube tutorial by Sweetsofmyown. I love following a tutorial because I learn so much in the process.
I made canes using last week’s scrap clay and decorated my handmade tools. They definitely needed some colour. And also made a new tool with an old exacto blade. Another tutorial by Katers Acres. The blade is rusted and very old, but perfect for cutting small things.

For week 6 of the 2020 Polymer Clay Challenge, I decided to make two miniature dachshunds and used Tinky and Gina as models. And off course Tinky’s tongue had to be out 😀 😀
