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 Angie’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 ‘normal’ 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.

Classes at my house!
(IMAGE: 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.
New sizes of packaging. Safe, non-toxic and pleasant to use.
Make your master or choose your leaf or other item to mould from. Mix 2 equal
amounts of the two-part MinitMold. Form the mould around the item you want to
reproduce, either by pressing the item into the mould, or the mould material
onto the item. The material sets in minutes to create a flexible mould suitable
for use with many different materials. As shown on the Liquid Fimo DVD below.
Sample size 2x30g, Standard size 2 x 50g packs. Get it on the Craft Tools and Moulds page. (Postage payable on craft items)
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.
