What types of miniatures do you make?
Right now, I primarily make food miniatures and cute charms. I’m currently considering other kinds of miniatures such as furniture, household items, and more.

I frequently use polymer clay for my miniatures, but sometimes I will use other materials such as paper, metal, and wood.

How long have you been working with miniatures?
From 2010 to 2013, I created super simple miniatures out of air dry clay. In November 2013, I began experimenting with polymer clay which led to much more detailed and smaller miniatures.

A little wordplay below, dedicated to the one true king of Westeros, Mr. George RR Martin.

A little kingdom. A little killing.

A little intrigue. A little incest.

A little direwolf. A little duplicity.

A little boy. A little betrayal.

A little friendship. A little fratricide.

A little night terror. A little morning truth.

A little witch. A little war.

A little wedding. A little weeping.

A little exile. A little escapade.

Right now, I mostly make food and packaging minis in 1:12 scale. Lately, I’ve been creating miniature figures and dioramas.

What materials do you use to make miniatures?

I use polymer clay for food miniatures. I also use all different kinds of materials when I make non-food items.

How long have you been working with miniatures?

I started making miniatures a few years ago but stopped for about a year because of my second pregnancy. This time around, I’ve only been creating for 1 year.

I create a variety of miniature pieces such as sweets and desserts, books, furniture, architecture, crochet, and restoration pieces.

I use what I have around me: paper leftovers, wire, fabric scraps, paints, and more. I support ecological and green design. For miniature food, I’ve discovered that I feel more confident using air-dry clay. Fimo Light is the brand that I’m currently using.

A little mania for the mini

Least understood by the masses is my preoccupation with all things miniature. Have a little look around to see the big picture.

In hopes of spreading the good word about a great mini, I launched @dailymini on Instagram in the winter of 2012.

The brand has since been met with great enthusiasm and delight by fellow miniacs. I’m fortunate enough to feature a new miniature each day and am thrilled to share my beloved minis with an international audience. I’m most of all humbled by the community’s response and the amazing range of mini submissions received on a daily basis.
