I have sculpted plenty of miniatures in my lifetime and they are usually made for dollhouse hobbyists and dolls.
If you are not interested in dollhouses or dolls, you can always turn the miniatures into wearable accessories. These accessories make great gifts for food lovers or anyone who fancies quirky jewelry.[caption id="attachment_20086" align="alignleft" width="300"] If you want to make bigger pieces, use Sculpey Ultralight 'which will reduce the weight of your masterpiece.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_20087" align="alignleft" width="300"] Licorice bead bracelet can be made using polymer clay - just remember to poke holes in the unbaked beads so you can thread them together later.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_20088" align="alignleft" width="300"] You don't have to sculpt in miniature, you can always scale it up appropriately.

Using Sculpey Oven Bake Clay Adhesive to Make Accessories
An important tip is to coat the end of your headpin with a tiny amount of Sculpey Bake and Bond before you insert it into the unbaked/uncured clay. This will bond the metal headpin with your polymer clay masterpiece. It is also key if you want your accessories to be durable.
