Food Miniatures In Polymer Clay

Polymer clay is a versatile medium.  I can be shaped and blended into different forms and colors. And just to show you that the clay artists of the Polymer Clay Smoosher's guild on Art Fire have a sense of humor here a few items made from polymer clay that, truly, look good enough to eat!

Pictured below is an amazing watermelon cane from Art Makers World.  From the striped rind to the tiny black seeds, it is truly representative of one of summer's favorite fruit.

These happy little Candy Corn Earrings look so realistic, I want to pop them into my mouth.  It's a good thing they come with ear wires attached, otherwise someone might mistakenly eat them!

This ribbon Candy Ornament by KaelMijoy  looks just like the real thing.  Everyone will think you've hung real ribbon candy on your tree.

This salad ring by Mystical Me Designs cracks me up.  It is so realistic, yet funny in its absurdity.  The lettuce, tomatoes and hard boiled egg are incredibly detailed and look so real.

This little grey mouse is adorable and his slice of birthday cake looks yummy, right down to what looks like a strawberry on top.

All in all, polymer clay is perfect for working up miniature food items.  It's easy to shape and sturdy enough once cured.
