Polymer miniatures are big

Kilgast on PCDaily

That’s what Stephanie Kilgast discovered. She was mobbed by miniaturists in Hong Kong at her press conference there a few months back. Her sushi platter brooches and earrings sell quickly. Catch the pictures and the news video.

Stephanie was born in Germany, lives in France and travels the globe showing her miniatures. She studied architecture but shortly before graduation she discovered polymer miniatures. After graduation she became a full-time miniaturist. That was in 2009.

Her mini-Easter eggs and chocolate bunny fit our week perfectly. You’ll find a bunch of Stephanie’s free tutorials¬†on her site. She’s also on CraftArtEdu, CDHM.org, Flickr and in all the usual places. It’s best to look when you’re not hungry! Thanks to Donna Kato for the link.

      I’m really feeling my sausage fingers right now! Wow! This work is so tiny, so detailed, so impressive!

        I too have sausage fingers and can only sit back and admire the wonderful detail and realism of Stephanie’s work. Amazing!

          I was lucky enough to take a class with Stephanie she is not only really talented but also a lovely person!

            Yummy! Almost every artist I have interviewed for the Polymer Cafe series has done miniatures at one time. They really catch the eye.

              I have been following Petitplat for years–though I am not into this particular branch of polymer art, she does it better than anyone I have ever seen. Her work is spectacular!!
