Latest Polymer Clay Minis for 'Le Forge'

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you are all well and enjoying your summer. Here in Malta we're passing once again through a heat wave.  I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments. It makes me really happy. I also want to welcome three new followers to my blog, Kathi, Natalia and Natasha. WELCOME! 

'Le Forge' is almost ready and complete, just in time before baby arrives which will be in the next 4 weeks. I have made some more polymer clay minis for 'Le Forge' which I think will be the last items that I will add to it as  I think that it is quite full. 

I have made a small silver frame which I have placed in the sleeping quarters of 'Le Forge'. The frame itself is made out of polymer clay and the picture is just a print out. Well actually the picture is a photo of myself when I was around 19 years old.

Then I have made a Trug with Vegetables. The vegetables are a cabbage, carrots, onions and potatoes. The trug is also made by me with polymer clay. These have been added to the living area of 'Le Forge'

I also made some yummy minis. I have made an apple tart and a fruit pie. The fruit pie has a cut out piece too which has been placed on a separate plate. The three plates have been made also with polymer clay and hand painted by me. These have also been added to the living area of 'Le Forge'

I am quite pleased with the outcome and I find it very relaxing at this stage of my pregnancy.

Keep tuned as I will be sharing with you very soon the complete project of  'Le Forge'. I will be missing this project as most of the items have been done  by me which I never expected that I was capable of making, but then again I am really looking forward to my new project. I already have some great plans for it. Obviously I will start building the new project after the baby comes but in the mean time I will start some little minis for it.

Take Care and see you soon.

  1. all of these are brilliant, very skillful :)

    1. Thank you so much Natasha. I am very pleased that you liked them. Take care xxx

  2. Great miniatures! I love the silver frame. Did you use regular polymer clay and painted it silver after baking? The cakes look so delicious.
    There is no escape from the heat here in Israel too. I can understand how hard it is for you at the last stage of pregnancy. I wish you all the best and an easy time.
    Hugs, Drora

    1. Hi Drora, thank you so much for your kind words. I used normal black polymer clay then painted it with glossy acrylic varnish. To the varnish I added silver dust pigments which you find in any craft shop. I prefer using dust pigments and add them to any type of varnish. When you want to paint polymer clay in silver, gold or bronze, the best color to use is always black. Take care xxx

  3. The silver frame is beautiful. Your fruit pies look so real and tasty. I have enjoyed watching your project you have done a fantastic job. Wishing you the very best of luck with your pregnancy and an easy birth. Take care of yourself.
    Hugs Maria
