More About the Author

Angie Scarr decided in her early thirties, with a young family taking much of her time, to dedicate herself to the craft of miniatures, having experimented with using millefiori techniques formerly used in the world of glass and jewellery making to produce incredibly realistic miniatures in a time when most miniature food was simply sculpted and painted.

Always a bit of a maverick, and never one to take no for an answer, initially Angie self-produced (along with husband Frank) a series of videos to capture the self destructive process of making the 'canes' . She was more than ready to take advantage as soon as the world of photography provided the means for her to produce the images for step-by-step books to be digitally photographed. As a result Angie persuaded GMC books that she had the ability to photograph her own work as it was produced... 'live'. This could not have been done any earlier without mortgaging the house to buy a camera as the one used was one the first of it's kind (2 megapixel!) to hit the shops. These days 5 times the capacity can be had at a fifth of the price.

GMC's 'punt' on the unknown author was amply repaid in 2001 when Angie's first book Making Miniature foods and Market stalls became an instant success. It is currently in it's 8th print run and is still one of their best sellers. It quite simply changed the style and standard of miniature food making from then on.

Angie is now a highly regarded miniaturist well known worldwide not only for for her intricate polymer clay work which heavily concentrates on still life in miniature, but also for her enthusiastic teaching and sharing of ideas. Constantly pushing the boundaries of the miniature craft Angie's second book Miniature food Masterclass explores more new techniques and materials. Angie's work and instructional projects also appear in miniatures hobby magazines and she teaches her techniques in Europe and in more distant parts of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and informational book.... 6 Jun 2009
I'm a huge Angie Scarr fan, and simply could not wait for this book to be released in the United states; and therefore purchased two copies from the U.K., one for collecting and one to wear out from reading over and over!

The book is excellent, not as good as her first, but excellent nonetheless.
The topics covered are "Getting Started", learning about polymer clays, workspace ideas, storing works in progress and the baking process. Next,
Materials and techniques. "Easy Caning," Egg cane, stuffed olives, squid, coconuts. "Moderate Caning," which includes the Skinner Method, Avocado, Asparagus, Celery, Bananas, Watermelon, Piel de Sapo Melon, Strawberries and Kiwi fruit. "Complex Caning," Tomatoes, red and green cabbage (two methods are shown), and Leeks. "Unusual Canes" includes olives, green and black, Mushrooms, Bell pepper slices and starfruit. The other sections include Liquid Polymer, where Angie teaches us how to make royal icing, Bakewell and iced tarts, mince pies, toffee apples, ice lollies (Popsicles for U.S. fans), lemon curd tarts and fruit tarts. Next, Gel Materials Victorian Jelly. She then teaches us about Moulds, (molds); how to make and use them, and last and by no means least, Cold Porcelain, which I just loved; as I had never tried this technique and the results are breathtaking. The cheesecake methods and heart cakes are just lovely and I quickly purchased Angie's new heart shaped mold to begin making the cakes! She also provides names and websites where one may purchase exquisite cutters and other supplies such as Scenic Water etc.

The photography is excellent, the instructions clear, but the book is not as exciting as her first, nor did I have a sense of "Wow" like I had reading book one or watching her fabulous videos.

The bible for mass producing miniature food. It concentrates on caning techniques, molds and cold porcelain.
Each lesson is well illustrated with photographs and easy to follow text. Lessons are divided into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced so you can work your way through them. You will be totally inspired and itching to make everything shown, especially the amazing cabbages! Well worth the investment.
