Donna Eckel of Raggedy D Miniatures offers several SUPERB tutorials on working with clay for making miniatures. They are listed under HOW-TO-PROJECTS, but you can also find them here.
She gives very specific tips, what to do and what not to do when working with clay, along with step by step pictures of the project in progress.
As of this writing, the tutorials are for making:
- General tips for working with polymer clay
- Christmas Bread and Jam
- Donuts with Chocolate Icing
- Jelly Bean Sugar Cookies
- Orange Blossom Cake
This is one of the few times I would be WILLING to offer a donation for the value of the tutorials provided.
