Polymer cats to the rescue

Kerri Pajutee's polymer sculpted animals bring outsized pleasure on PolymerClayDaily

Bummed and stuck? I know what you guys need. Time to bring in the cats!

Just imagine the tiny purrs of these little guys from Oregon’s Kerri Pajutee. This one’s an Egyptian Mau. She sculpts miniatures in polymer in 1:12 scale and uses natural fibers to give them their coats. The entire process from inspiration to the final scissor clip is tedious, exacting, and time-consuming. Kerri is widely collected.

Her little creatures bring outsized pleasure. A scroll through her Instagram is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. How does she do it?

Canes from the garden

Helena Viberg makes amazing 12:1 miniature fruits and veggies on PolymerClayDaily.com

Sweden’s Helena Viberg (enmojtmojta) sucked me right down a nostalgic rabbit hole with her 1:12 scale miniatures.

I started in polymer making imitative food with my daughter for her dollhouse. It was nothing like Helena Viberg’s home renovations but Hillary and I spent many happy hours making pizzas from polymer and furniture from matchboxes.

How far that art form has come! It’s hard to believe that you’re not in a chic country chateau when you look at Helena’s creations. And stumbling onto miniaturists’ Home Depot (Mini Materials) was astonishing.

Helena says that recently when she tired of mini-home renovations she returned to her garden to make these fruit and veggie canes. Careful, you could lose a large chunk of time looking at her tiny wonders. The most efficient way to see them is on Instagram.
