Our Japanese Clay Artwork...

Over the last few months Sarah, Gracie and I have experimented with Japanese clay for Gracie's Playmobil toy collection, and Mama, Papa and Mary have been the admires of our somewhat clumsy efforts. Practice makes perfect that's for sure. Anyhow, I thought to put some photos of our craft! :)
P.S. some of the items are set in Playmobil items (e.g. pots, pans and large plastic plates) which we haven't done, but all the food and cutlery and stuff are Japanese Clay! Below also are some photos of Gracie's Playmobil dollhouse.

Here is the newest edition to our clay items!

This is our master-piece.... Sarah's apple pie!
Sarah did the sandwiches, the fish and the biscuits...
That funny little round bowl is a lentil soup by Joy
The cream muffins are also by Joy.

yellow cheese with actual holes (the mice didn't eat the cheese),
Joy's salad/fruit/meat and Sarah's eggs and bread muffin

A closer look at some of the foods and items
(the fried eggs done mostly by Joy, whole eggs by Sarah and Grace,
and the silver cutlery and cups by Sarah)

The loaves were quite easy to make but we took sometime
finding the perfect colour tint for the bread

I just love those cakes.... 'hmmmm'

Gracie did most of those dirt potatoes for the farm house.
We used pastel colours to paint them brownish and muddy! P.S. the pan and lid are Playmobil :)

One of Sarah's great chocolate cakes, LOL!

Sarah used a kind of glue to give it a jelly look

I meant this to be a meat pie but Mum said it was more like an ice-cream Bombey!!!!

Gracie's really special fruit basket.
The delicate red grapes and black-spotted bananas were one of my better inventions...

Fragrant morning toast by Sarah
and the white plate and silver knife are done by her too.
The vase and pink rose by Joy

Real Swiss cheese done by Joy and Grace. The salad bowl is somewhat funny by Joy.

Sarah's cutlery and cups

meat slices done by Joy
They are rather fatty!!!!

  1. Wow, what a beautiful display of artwork! Japanese clay seems to be ideal to work with.That food looks deliciously edible!! Love Gracie's medieval farmhouse too... so cutely and cosily furnished :) xo

  2. Thanks, Maddy!
    It is great to work with Japanese clay and make all those things, even though at times they do test your patience... :)
    Japanese Clay is certainly very good to work with, yes. Polymer clay is another good one for miniature items, but we haven't tried it yet. Yesterday Sarah Gracie and I did more stuff with the clay and Sarah did a really cute apple pie which I will post sometime! Thanks for commenting, Maddy! God bless!

  3. Can't wait to see some more of these photos!

    I love the changes that you have made to your blog; the Victorian template is beautiful! Your new pages are great too; it's good to look at another person's library for ideas and inspiration! You have some good-sounding books and movies on there.

    Look forward to reading more :)

    God bless!

  4. Lovely! The apple pie is truly a masterpiece :)
