FIMO & Other Clays
Over 40 Williamsburg-style holiday decorations and foods designed in miniature are featured in this book.
As Christmas approaches each year, our homes start to hum with excitement as we plan and prepare to celebrate its magic. In the miniature world, this excitement is not diminished by size, but rather increased in a world where magic reigns.
Thanks to the expertise of Florida miniaturist Nancy Ranney, you can now "deck the halls" in splendor and prepare a holiday feast worthy of a gourmet. Especially for the Holidays, Nancy designed "Christmas Confections" for the Nutshell News Plans Service. It consists of more than 40 Williamsburg-style holiday decorations for all through the house, including a completely decorated Christmas tree and gourmet Christmas dinner.
If you enjoy the traditional decorations of an 18th century American Christmas - colorful arrangements centered around fruits, nuts, and natural greenery - you will want to try each of these easy-to-do projects from the mistletoe kissing ball to the apple and magnolia weaths, to the cone of lemons centerpiece. Each project has a list of materials, instructions and diagrams, so you can make everything, or choose only the items most appropriate for your holiday setting.
In "Christmas Confections," Nancy attempts to give a base from which your individual creativity can grow. "Your imagination," Nancy predicts, "will make each item distinctly yours, to be treasured for many Christmas to come."
