Coming across a fantastic clay sweets book is like finding a gold treasure, especially given that this is not a Japanese book. Almost all air dry clay fake sweets books are originated from Japan.
Written in Mandarin by a Taiwanese miniature maker Guo Guang Zhen, this is definitely one of the best clay sweets book I’ve come across.
The title of this craft book is called Clay Sweet Snack.
There are a few things that set this craft book apart from the Japanese books which makes it so unique!
What makes this clay sweets book so special?
- Has quite a lot of examples of 1:12 scale food miniatures compared to other japanese craft books
- Learn the basics of making 1:12 scale cake layers, and from there you are free to experiment your own cake layers!
- Teaches you to sculpt 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature breads without the use of mold
This is a full coloured, 106 pages craft book. All text are in Mandarin, but with the step by step photo illustration, you will not have difficulty following.
There are also few innovation ideas of how you can transform your clay sweet items into practical usable items such as this cute measuring tape 🙂
For those of you who are really into sculpting, then you would absolutely love this book which teaches you to sculpt more than 10 different french bakery breads in 1:12 dollhouse miniature scale.
Almost 1/4 of the book focuses on bread making, so for those who are crazy about bread sculpting would definitely love it.
But of course, if you want to make them bigger, you can always adapt accordingly 🙂
Here is the list of breads that you will get to learn to sculpt:
- Round chive bread
- European round bread
- Garlic bread
- French baguette
- French bread
- Bacon bread
- Olive bread
- Melon pan
- Braided bread
- German pretzel bread
I must say though, that it takes practice to master the sculpting technique. But I am quite sure that you will be blown away by the amazing possibility of air dry clay.
Lots of clay sweets decorations and ideas are also shown to inspire you!
