Winter Break is here but all our books are still available
Hi everybody. This is the time of year when we have to close Angie Scarr Miniatures for the month. Weâ€™ll be back in the new year of course and you can still buy all my books on Amazon right up to Xmas. Cheap and cheerful is my 3D pen book for anyone who either has a pen or for who youâ€™re thinking of buying one. My daughter bought me mine 2 and a half years ago and it was such a great gift.
If you find thereâ€™s something you forgot we can point you at a trader who may have stock but thatâ€™s by no means certain.

NEW Worldwide Distribution: Angie Scarr's Colour Book
NEW Angie Scarr's Colour Book
Nature's Colours For Polymer Clay, A5 size, 104 packed pages
This compact book of colour recipes techniques and projects is packed with short cuts, little projects, medium sized ideas and big questions. Pop it in your handbag and using the colour swatches make notes next time you see something that inspires you! Bring it home and create.
A distillation of Angieâ€™s 25 or more years of finding out she was just a little more obsessed with the colour of fruit and vegetables and other elements of nature than most â€˜normalâ€™ people!
When reproducing the colours of nature in polymer clay, pigment and light can become really complicated subjects as Angie discovered while writing this book. This is her exploration of and attempt to simplify the subject, and make it accessible to all while still providing some meaty questions for the professionals among her readers to get their teeth into.
NEW> The Miniature Gardens Book is here!
Once again Angie Scarr lets you peer into her workshop, her mind and, in this book, her garden.
Leading you through more explorations into uses of polymer clay, liquid polymer and mixed media for a realistic depiction of nature presented in some simple and some more complex projects.

My autobiographical book Making It Small is now available!
Yayyyy! Iâ€™d love it if you all went to Amazon through my website link below (and Iâ€™ll tell you why in a moment) and bought it today or ASAP. This is because a big rush of orders helps my Amazon rankings and means that its more likely to be suggested to more people. If you enjoy it (and if youâ€™re a miniaturist, or a serial creative, or interested in self building or living abroad, or someone with social phobia and/or anxiety issues then you should) please leave a review because that helps too.
Why click through from my website? Because at NO extra cost to you, going through that way actually gives us a little more income in the form of vouchers that I can spend on tools etc. through something called the Amazon affiliate scheme.
Not sure? Read the back page blurb here:
Miniaturist, self builder and serial creative Angie, never did things quite the way anyone thought she should. This is the story of how challenging and also how rewarding life can be if you take an unconventional path and stick with it in spite of all indications that disaster is looming.
Angie and her â€˜Computer Geekâ€™ husband Frankâ€™s exploits in England and AndalucÃa are unusual, maddening, cringe-worthy and sometimes very funny indeed. There are moments of triumph and moments of despair. And almost always a blind faith and a can do attitude.
Woven through the whole story is her absolute passion for thinking up new creative ideas, sharing them and inspiring other people.
This rags to rags autobiography is both a cautionary and joyful tale for anyone thinking of living a non-traditional creative life, or anyone contemplating making the big leap to another country in the belief that it will all work out.

Danger zone. Title track from my 20 year old album. Worries On My Mindwith Pat Missin on harmonica. From the re-compilation of my first CD Danger Zone which now includes 4 previously un-released self-penned tracks to compensate for four removed cover versions.
Definitely one of a kind! Iâ€™m clearing out my small workshop to make space for my new book project So Iâ€™m offering the original parts of the starring gardens from my Gardens Book. Because Iâ€™m not a careful collector just a maker/inventor there are a few slightly damaged or missing pieces but these are explained in every case.
My first offering is the shed and base from the allotment garden, with an option on the rest of the allotment. This is probably my favourite piece from the book and it incorporates the following :-
Paved base with weedy patch (poppies, dandelions violets, grass and other small weeds)
trug with vegetables
chopping block with axe and wood
a herb pot
a watering can.
The old distressed shed which has a damaged diamond shaped crown piece (easy to replace ... or not bother)
a few tools
plus drying onions.
Offers around Â£175 (GBP) including postage. Option for the buyer of this part on the other two base parts and remaining plants and the fencing panels as seen in the book.
If you are a fan of my books and want to be first in line for the other gardens and finished parts from past and future books please let me know.

Classes at my house!
Our village house in Andalucia is still in the middle of it's self-build. That
is to say I'm juggling making miniatures, keeping the online business up to
date, visiting mainly European fairs and doing building works ourselves. We are
beginning to take bookings for small groups and individuals who wish to combine
practical classes with a holiday in the beautiful Sierra de Aracena.
Miniaturists, Nail Artists and Crafters - Welcome to the site!
Using The Site
You can order straight away without account details - Paypal will provide all of them when you pay. For trade customers, at the left of the page are options for Create A New Account to let you
register, and My Account to track orders. Traders should register as such and use trade ordering (from My Account) for any wholesale purchases.
Angie is taking a break to write books and make new products. All orders will be fulfilled by Frank's Craft Shop.
We have started to reorganise the website now that I'm diversifying into other craft areas. Or, rather, concentrating on polymer clay caning!
There will now be new sizes for those interested in other scales such as Playscale ('Barbie scale'), nail art, scrapbooking and other crafts which use my canes and the new 'superfine' slices and 'art veneers'.
Please keep looking in to see what's new. Remember many designs don't get repeated. So, if you see it ... and you want it ... Get it!
Site Redesign We hope the new layout makes sense to everyone now, with all the canes and slices in one place to avoid confusion. Each item has its type (fine slice, superfine slice or cane) and a size from 1/24, 1/12th, 1/6th to larger craft sizes. The trade page in particular is now much clearer to help find the right type of item. We have finally added our Links section, if we missed you out feel free to get in touch via the contact form. The new layout is now a lot easier to use.
Frank and I have moved house to Spain and have now transitioned to being a Spanish company. However we will still be charging in pounds and functioning just like an English company. We now send a PayPal payment request when the order is ready to ship. You do not need a PayPal account to pay by card.
Ordering You can now order using Paypal. No money is taken until your order is packed and ready to dispatch. When the order is ready we will send an email to your registered address. NB European trade customers can now order using bank transfer also.
The new website
and it's management system is working magnificently well. Almost like having an extra unpaid
admin assistant!. See Frank's site www.networkadvice.co.uk for details
if you are interested in having a similar management system which can be
particularly useful for the small but busy craft business. Frank also writes smaller, simple contact only pages for a very reasonable price, and all points in between!
We now have a small sample size of Minitmold available just under the weight limit for excessive postal charges in Spain. Get it on the Craft Tools and Moulds page.
