When I saw a tutorial by Stephanie Kilgast on YouTube – “How to sculpt miniature teeth”, I HAD to give it a try! 🙂 My miniature dentures, 2cm long, 1.9cm wide and 1.6cm high.
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.

A miniature teddy bear for week 4 of the 2020 Polymer Clay Challenge. I followed SweetMiniDollhouse’s tutorial on YouTube but decided to make mine into a fridge magnet and not 3D like hers. My teddy is 3cm high.
A cupcake pen and holder was my project for week 3 of the 2020 Polymer Clay Challenge. Decorating a pen is loads of fun and needless to say, I LOVE making cupcakes, whether it’s the edible kind or out of polymer clay. I am very happy with my cupcake pen.
