Mini Menagerie by Lynn Allingham – Book Review

7 November 2018


Mini Menagerie by Lynn Allingham – Book Review


We’ve been very lucky again here at Doll’s House Emporium, as we’ve been given the chance to review another book by the fantastic Lynn Allingham. This time her beautiful new book, Mini Menagerie.

From cute cats to beautiful bush babies, the book has clear step-by-step instructions showing you how to bring 20 different miniature animals to life using polymer clay. Each animal is incredibly life like and full of character!



As with her previous book Making mini food each project has easy to follow instructions, accompanied by clear photographs, which help you follow along with all the makes. The book also has the all-important Tools and Materials and Techniques sections, which are essential in helping you to lift the animals from the pages and into reality.




Each of the projects has a clear Materials and Equipment list as well as very useful Tips. The concise tips help guide you with the slightly more challenging parts of the projects and little bits of information to help your project run smoother. It also offers a lovely personal touch from Lynn.



Our favourite thing about the book is the mixed media elements that Lynn has introduced, using felting, foraged materials and other skills and crafts to help bring these beautiful creatures to life.




We think that this is a brilliant book and is a must have for both beginner and more experienced makers. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to give creating their own miniature animals a try!

Mini Menagerie is available NOW and can be purchased from here: www.gmcbooks.com

Bet you didn’t know this was a miniature! – Lord of The Rings

26 September 2018

We love all things miniature here at The Dolls House Emporium. This week on the blog we take you behind the scenes of one of our favourite film series and show you the incredible miniatures (or ‘bigatures’, as they were nicknamed, due to the sheer size of some of them!) created by the amazing WETA Workshop team for the Lord of The Rings film trilogy.

WETA Workshop were not only responsible for the incredible miniatures made for the films, they also made 48,000 items across six departments, covering a multitude of Middle Earth cultures and races.

Here are some of the beautifully detailed models created by the incredibly talented WETA team of multi-skilled craftsmen and artists. Enjoy!
