Book Description

9 Oct 1997
Do you think making furniture for a doll's house is too complicated? Go ahead and decorate, because polymer clay easily simulates a variety of textures and hardens in an ordinary oven! This versatile material yields stained glass, wooden furniture, marbled tables, and more. Here's the definitive guide to manufacturers, tools, safety, and crafting. Fill the kitchen with tiny vegetables, utensils, and appliances, and the living room with a mantelpiece clock, bookshelf, and Tiffany lamp. Serve dinner in the dining room, and build a bedroom so cozy you'll want to live there yourself! There's not a domestic detail you won't find. A Selection of BOMC's Crafters Choice Book Club.

All the projects in this book were made using Fimo, but any of the different brands of polymer clay could be used because they are all basically very similar. Read the first page

This book covers many items you can make for your dolls house from polymer clay (e.g. Fimo, Sculpey, Premo) and bake in your home oven. You'll be amazed how realistic the food is and how easy the author makes it for you to follow the instructions and create things that are just as good. Other items include furniture, dressing-table items and even the kitchen sink.
I'm buying this book for the second time, since my first copy, bought years ago, has been lent to so many people I've lost track of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Marvellous Step-by-Step Guide 10 Oct 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sue's book is full of good tips and clever ideas. I am just amazed at what you can do and how easily you can do it with the book's step-by-step guide.
I have now bought the book for both of my nieces aged 10 and am looking forward to seeing how they get on. My mother (in her 80s) is having great fun making little miniture items for her grandchildren.
This is perfect for making presents for someone who has a doll's house and for someone happy to be a bit creative with some polymer clay. If you know how expensive dolls' minitures are, you will know that it is a good buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even an idiot can do it! 15 Dec 2003
What a brilliant buy. The book was delivered, a visit to craft shop made for FIMO clay and the whole family went quiet for the whole weekend producing no end of tasty food for the on-going dolls house. Excellent easy to read and to follow instructions. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to follow for a beginner to polymer clay 20 Jan 2002
By A Customer
With good photos and detailed instructions I felt that I too could make minatures just like those in the book. (and so far they've not been too bad). The intro is well written for those of us whose only use of clay was left behind in nursery school with the plasticine and shows you the basic of marbleing and rolling.
