These little miniatures look fantastic in fairy or miniature gardens and doll houses or even just sitting at the base of a potted plant. This tutorial will show you an easy, cheap rewarding way to make great accessories for your miniature garden. I've found a cheap quick way to make moulds without using latex, it's not perfect but gives great results. Once your mould is finished, you can make hundreds more finished pieces.
This book will show you how to make three different pieces, however once you know how, you can change the design to any style you like. Made from grey and white cement, you can use either or add some colour with cement pigment powders. All the items you need are easy to find at your local dollar store, hardware or garden store. You will need three main items, modelling clay (craft shop) cement and silicone. (Bunnings)
Easy for beginners with step by step directions with loads of pictures. (See sample page in photos.)
You'll have so much fun creating these fun projects, and I bet you won't wait to show them off. Think of all the wonderful gifts you'll be able to make.

I love to make and create, you? I started feeling craftsy after my first child was born. Became quickly hooked and have been making toys and clothes ever since. I live on the Gold Coast with my hubby and five beautiful children who are usually the inspiration of my work. If there is a greener or cheaper way to creating something I'll usually find it. My other loves include painting, drawing, clay, sculpture, fairy gardens and anything miniature or cute.
