Miniature Toadstool Tutorial

By vesssper
Finally I'm ready with my first tutorial! This is what I have been doing the last few days, hope you enjoy it and find it useful!

I will show you how to make the beautiful fly agarics (Amanita Muscaria) in miniature. May be some of you have a better technique but this is what I have come up to.

For those who have never made miniatures: don't get scared by the size of my toadstools and all those fingers around, you can use the same technique for any size. However, I recommend starting with a LARGER mushrooms.

If you have a question or there is anything unclear just ask.
And please tell me if you find a mistake! :)

IMPORTANT UPDATE: You would better use cornstarch instead of baby powder as some powders contain TALC (like mine - i don't know how can one still make such products) and talc is considered cancerogenic!

at what temp do you generally back all your polymer creations? What texture is the final product?

Love the multitude of miniature objects which seems to be inspiring people all over, may have to give them a try :) Would definitely be starting with these. Great tutorial with top imagery, clear instructions and a lovely layout.
thanks so much........must try this.

I hadn't even thought of making toadstools with my polymer clay..but yours are so adorable and realistic, I might just have to try it! Though I'm sure they'd never be as good as yours are~
