Making Miniature Food in Polymer Clay
January 30 – February 13

This workshop is exactly what it sounds like! Using polymer clay, and a few other materials, students will create realistic, miniature food items for use as charms or in dollhouse scenes. Students are required to provide their own supplies and materials. Instructor: Dina Gjertsen

Class #1: An introduction to polymer clay techniques. We will make loaves of realistic bread, toast and sandwiches.

Class#2: Caning with polymer clay. We will make a miniature realistic sushi cane and create tiny sushi plates and scenes. Toothpicks to cut in half for chopsticks are a nice addition.

Class #3: Brownie ice cream sundaes, cakes and pies. Bottle caps for pie plates are needed.

Materials required:

  • A large sampler pack of Sculpey (optional: an extra block of both white and translucent)
  • A basic sculpting tools kit with metal tools – especially needle tools and flat
  • Some old paintbrushes, a used toothbrush, toothpicks, large needles, tinfoil scraps and old plastic gift cards (for cutters) are also useful.
  • A container of translucent liquid Sculpey is essential for many of the projects.
  • Chalk pastels, specifically brown & yellow ochre
