Hi. I am quite new to polymer clay and to this site. I started working with it in April/May of this year. I am loving it so far. I make miniatures mostly. Up until now I have been eye balling them and not really measuring in 1:12 scale. But I really want to now. I have read on glassattic about it. I looked under miniatures but it didn't say much about it or go into detail about it unless I missed something.
I am just confused I guess. Do I really have to go around measuring everything? Like if I wanted to make a miniature chocolate cake, would I have to make one and measure it and then make it in miniature? Just an example. How do you measure? How would you measure things that you don't have if you want to make them in miniature? Do I just take a wild guess? Just need some clarification I guess. I eventually want to start selling my miniatures around here so I need all the practice I can get. Thanks
Sorry if this has been asked already. I tried searching for such a topic but couldn't find anything.
