This book contains an extensive selection of step-by-step projects for making miniature food items for the 1/12 scale dolls' house. The realistic-looking meals range from simple fruit, vegetables and bread to "celebration food" and banquets. A comprehensive section, featuring the step-by-step techniques of working with polymer clay, involves shaping the clay, mixing colours, texturing and finally, baking it. The necessary tools and materials are also detailed, as well as how to put them to their most effective use. Colour photographs show the finished items and display ideas and instruction are given, from bread baskets to a complete table setting.
