Making mini food - Book Review

Making mini food by Lynn Allingham – Book Review


We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on a review copy of Making mini food by the brilliant Lynn Allingham, and we wanted to share our thoughts with you!

The book contains instructions for how to create 30 miniature projects from polymer clay. Each of the miniatures is beautifully photographed, helping to show off the incredible detail that can be achieved by following the instructions.


Essential in books of this sort are the Tools and Materials and Techniques sections, and Making mini food really does excel in this department. The Tools and Materials section is well photographed, so that you can be confident that you’re using exactly the right tool for the job (and many of the items that you need can be found around the home, too).


The 30 projects are separated into three skill categories: beginner, intermediate and advanced, and each contains easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. Each step is accompanied by a clear photograph to show you exactly what you should be doing.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the beginner projects won’t yield amazing results just because they’re relatively simple. Some of the projects in this section (such as the cheeseburger, shown here) are among our absolute favourites, and show just how possible it is to achieve fantastic results.


Our favourite thing about the book has to be the clarity of the instructions. Lynn has done an excellent job of clearly explaining exactly what needs to be done at each step, and the photographs make following along a breeze.


We think that this is a fantastic book, and we’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants to give creating their own miniatures a try!
