Some months ago, I went nuts and spent $70 on a bunch of fake mini pastries.
Yes, I know, it’s really nuts how much these things cost! But Fancy Pocket had a 35% discount that day, and I had long been drawn to these cuties, always tempted to buy them.
I had planned to zhng my DS Lite with them because my Hello Kitty bling case broke. I know what I bought was probably excessive but I just couldn’t help myself. They’re all so cute!
Okay, there’s a point to this and I’m coming to it.
(But side-track first: I still haven’t zhnged my DS after months cos I just keep getting distracted by other stuff. Plus I have no idea how I’m going to do it. Story of my life. Okay end of side-track.)
As you might know, recently, I’ve been playing this board game called Agricola. (Try it! Even people who’re not into board games love it!)
The game involves the use of tiny game pieces which we call meeples. (Technically, meeples refer only to humanoid pieces but for the sake of simplicity, I’ll just use the term generally.)
They’re tiny wooden blocks and discs and strips, used to represent people, farm animals, vegetables, resources, stables and fences.
(Agricola is a farming game.)
If you feel rich, you can pay extra to get third-party meeples that are more accurately shaped.
We bought these and were so pleased with ourselves!
But, today, while surfing the net, I found the most amazing thing. This guy had used polymer clay to make his own meeples!

They look so much better do they not?!!
After seeing this, I felt a burning itch to make my own! So I went and did a bit of research and then realised that the mini pastries I had brought are probably made of polymer clay, too.
That means if I learn how to work with polymer clay, I will be able to make as many cute pastries as I want to!!!!
I’ve always loved miniatures, especially food miniatures. I can stare at them for hours in toy shops!
I also love doing craftwork. See this felt strawberry I made!
It’s part of this DIY cake set I bought.
Um… I have finished making all the fruits but not the cake. I kinda put the project aside for a while and forgot about it until today. =P
Oh, am now chatting with the Goonfather, who is also very enthusiastic about making miniatures. He reminded me that I’ve always wanted to buy those burger-making Play-Doh sets but never did because they’re, like, so juvenile!
BUT I HAVE DISCOVERED PLAY-DOH FOR ADULTS!!!
Wahahaha I am so happy phear meh!!!!!
I want to take polymer clay-making lessons and am considering a few places I found online. But I would like to hear personal recommendations if there are any.
Okay, okay?! Let’s talk about clay!!

Erhm, polymer clay must bake in an oven also ah? CUz that guy mentioned using the “sow and bake bread” option…
Yes! Maybe we can bake clay for food! 1 clay = 5 food?
this post is so exciting. the little kid inside me is jumping up and down.
good job on the strawberry~
@KenshinZ – Hehehe… the kid in my waves hello to the kid in you. lol. Thanks for the encouragement! ;)
@Realliveman – Thanks!
There’re books and plenty of sites on the net about polymer clay crafts. Sounds better to just subscribe to a shorter (and cheaper) course to pick up the basics fast!
Play dough is oily…it dirty the floor…i meant the burger making set:)
