My daughter is always watching youtube videos on “how to make your own doll food” and badgering me to do these little ones.
Thankfully we had just entered at the supermarket a few days ago when we found the perfect package of polymer clay (also described as modeling clay). I had no doubt to pick it up and we started to make plans instantly.
We chose the polymer clay in white considering to paint the foods with the canvas acrylic paints we still had from oldest projects.
We created lollipops, toffee apple, pretzels, hot dogs, a hamburger, sausage sticks and made some kitchen utensils, like spoons and bowls.
My daughter also made a cotton candy using a simple piece of cotton colored by soft pastels. She glued a stick on it to fit on her dolls hands.
I bought the polymer clay in white but you can buy in assorted colors if you want. It’s up to you!
Look what Theresa, from the blog Theresa’s Mixed Nuts, did with different colors.
Let your imagination guide you on this project and you will do amazing foods for your dolls.
You will need:
- Polymer Clay
- Plastic Film
- Assorted colors of Paints
Important: before you start, please, pay attention. You may not see, but the clay could leave a residue on surfaces. So, protect everything wrapping the items you will use to roll the clay dough and lay the pieces with plastic film.
