Food for dolls from plasticine
Very easy to work material - it's plasticine. The main thing is to choose the right color. Mixing pieces of different colors, you can get new shades. It is more convenient to start by trying to make an exact copy of a dish. For example, take an apple and try to make the same from plasticine, small.
To get a round shape, it is easy to squeezea piece of plasticine between the palms and gently roll it in a circle. If to roll plasticine not on a circle, and forward-back, it will turn out "sausage" of the oblong form. Having learned this, you can make a variety of miniature dishes - fruits, vegetables, pies, sausages, etc.

- 2 cups of flour;
- 1 cup of salt;
- 3/4 cup of water.
All you need to mix well. From the test you can make beautiful pies, cookies, fruits and much more. Unlike plasticine, the salted dough can be rolled up to the state of a flat sheet, and then with the help of cookie cutters cut out fragments of different shapes. This way you can make pies and cakes.
After the doll's food is dried in the oven over low heat, it becomes firm and durable.
Crafts from salt dough necessarily needcolorize. For vegetables and fruits, gouache is perfect, which then needs to be covered with varnish, and in order to depict jam or honey, stained glass paints, shiny and translucent, will be useful.
Small masterpieces of polymer clay
Food for dolls with their own hands can be made frompolymer clay. It is easy to work, like plasticine, but after making an article it needs to be baked in the oven, after which it hardens, while retaining bright colors. As in the work with plasticine, you can achieve different shades by mixing pieces of clay in different colors.
Of polymer clay, the most realisticdishes. You can make not only simple crafts, such as apple, cucumber, lemons, cakes, but also more complex ones such as cabbage, ice cream in a horn or even kiwi.
On the Internet, you can find many master classes onmaking food for dolls. There are special techniques, tricks and tricks that make toy products even more like real ones. Masterfully made miniature treats look so beautiful and realistic that they even make jewelry.
The peculiarity of polymer clay is that it can make a cake out of it, which will be likeoutside, and inside look like real. Such a cake can be cut into pieces, and then bake in the oven.
You can achieve this effect if you manufacturea puppet dish as well as the present. That is, you need to make each cake separately by rolling out the polymer clay to a flat state, adding layers that represent the cream and stuffing between the cakes, and then beautifully decorating the tip with a lot of tiny balls similar to berries.
Watermelon can also be made realistic from the inside. To do this, first you need to make a ball of red polymer clay, gently rolling it around the circle between the palms, and then wrap this ball with a thin layer of green polymer clay, evenly smooth over the surface. Cutting this watermelon into slices, you can add a few black dots-seeds on the surface of the red pulp.
By this principle, you can make different vegetables and fruits.
