Hello there! My name is Kitty. I'm a miniature artist from Upstate New York. I work mainly in polymer clay but use other mediums if I have the need. This blog is a collection of photographs and information on a "Hannibal" themed miniature room setup I have planned. I'll be putting together a replica of Hannibal Lecter's dining room and kitchen. If you're interested, please follow! If you have any questions, make sure to ask. I'd love to hear some feedback and/or suggestions!

1) favourite piece of artwork that you've done? 2) Name one artistic influence? 3) did you have a nice day?

1) My favorite piece of artwork that I’ve done is actually a barrette. I wanted something with a triple moon goddess and couldn’t find anything that I liked, so I made one. :)

2) This is going to sound really silly but I used to watch a lot of Bob Ross growing up. He lets you know that mistakes can be beautiful and nothing is impossible.

3) It was good. I’ve been having a rough week and today kind of worked out.

Thank you, anon! You’re lovely!

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of decoden and polymer clay questions about what to use to as a gloss/glaze. Almost every time the first response is “Clear nail polish, duh!”.
This needs to stop if people want to be creating quality items. Sometimes I’m afraid to buy handmade things for fear that they have been sealed with clear nail polish and they will deteriorate over time. I want to buy things that will last!

I’ve reblogged this before - but it’s sooooo important. crafting signal boost 

I highly recommend MOD PODGE!!! It comes in gloss and matte. As the infographic shows, it’s only 75 cents an ounce.


Fuck that weak shit.  Tamiya clear gloss is my copilot. It’s water proof, unlike Mod Podge. It might not be the cheapest gloss, but it’s hella durable.

My personal preference is the Krylon spray, because you can put on nice even layers, with no brush marking.   When spray sealer won’t work, I like delta ceramcoat. 

I second the Krylon spray and ceramcoat. I also use triple thick. Also want to add, nail polish, when applied to polymer clay breaks down and gets sticky after awhile.

one thing that tumblr is helping me with is accepting the fact that no matter what you do there will always be people that hate you for absolutely no reason

Still waiting on my first anon hate. u.u
