A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon this amazing wesite with tons of tutorials for making poly clay food.
It was all in what I beleive to be Japanese
There was a column on the left to the links of the different tutorials, and then the actual tutorial showed up on the right, lots of pictures
The tutorials were really great, but I can't find it again!
I think I might have found the link somewhere on craftster, but I just can't find it!
If anyone knows what I am talking about, please reply!
I would really like to know!

I have a number of references to the Pine Studio website on my Miniatures page, with some info on how to see them in English:




Pine Studio's lesson on making sushi rolls + slices with sea eel, egg, cucumber and rice
.....to view in English thru AltaVista's BabelFish, go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
.......then enter http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm in the Translate Page window ..select Japanese to English ..click on WindingSushi --in the long category, 4th from bottom)
.....she makes her rice as individual grains (not a cane) by scraping at white (or trans/white?) chunk of clay with an awl to make many tiny chunks... then lets the chunks firm up for a few hours (softer brands of clay probably wouldn't work well), and puts a thick layer of it loosly on the black "wrapper" (which is actually black paper she's added a layer of glue to), then adds the eel and cucumber canes/logs on the rice, and rolls the whole thin up, slightly overlapping it at the end

....PineStudio's clever "icing tip" made from tiny cylinder of serrated metal strip fr.plastic-wrap box...+ transparent tape as the "icing bag")
(to view English translation through BabelFish, first go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
...enter this url in Translate Page window: http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm
...select Japanese to English... click on Cookie in left bar)
(for more info on using icing tips and/or clay guns, as well as various other mediums that could be used or mixed together to create icings, see Clayguns )

Pine Studio's lesson on making donuts
.. she somewhat flattens a ball of clay, then creates a hole in the middle with an awl, and lets sit a couple of hrs to firm up
.... then paints thinned down brown acrylic paint on top, & later adds clear acrylic finish (fingernail polish?) for glossy chocolate icing
...one donut has a sugar topping (... fine sand glued on top of icing)
(to view English translation through AltaVista's Babel Fish, first go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
...& enter this url in the Translate Page window: http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm
...then select Japanese to English ... click on various links in left bar, including Doughnut

PineStudio's donuts ... waffles ...fruit tarts
......ALSO fruit inside formed gelatin --like Jello (actually 2-pt resin, but could use Varathane, or Future... she "casts" the resin in a "mold" consisting of a plastic multi-pill packaging
.....ALSO "twisted cookies (clever "icing tip" made from tiny cylinder of serrated metal strip fr.plastic-wrap box + trans.tape as"icing bag"), with cherry in center
.....ALSO fabulous pastries
(to view English translation through AltaVista's Babel Fish: go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
.....enter this url in the Translate Page window:
http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm ...then select Japanese to English, and click on various links in left bar

pizza... sushi (rice, seaweed wrap, cucumber, eel, egg)... fried shrimp (+cabbage,sliced tomato)
....spaghetti noodles & meat sauce.... beef noodle soup with veggies... beef stew with broccoli flowerets, potato & carrot hunks

.... enter this url in the Translate Page window:
http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm ...then select Japanese to English

lessons from Pine Studio ...plate, teacup, bowl (painted with designs)
... initial shape formed by pressing ball of clay on end of rounded pen barrel or other rod, bottom rolled in palm... top cut with blade, filed)
(to view English translation through AltaVista's Babel Fish: go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
.... enter this url in the Translate Page window:

(non-polymer clays are used, but some great ideas and could be modified)
