Miniatures Description

Editorial Review - Kirkus Reviews Amid today's upheavals, notes author Meras, ""a miniature world is a manageable one""; and whatever the reason, miniatures are enjoying a boom. Here, for the collector turned craftsman, is an all-inclusive guide to making miniatures that appropriately combines care, taste, and charm. The investment is small (another plus), the challenge is evident, the examples are alluring--and the instructions, plans, and photos bring success within reach. Start small, Meras suggests, with accessories (a chandelier based on cuphooks, vases and ashtrays from other findings); if fine needlepoint is your forte, try a cross-stitch sampler; dextrous? contrive an umbrella or other metal object. You can fashion an array of appetizing foods from molding materials; make furniture, of course; and graduate to a general store or old-fashioned Christmas parlor. And when, like every hobbyist, you have as many. . . as you need, you can turn your talent to money; Meras offers precise, realistic information on how. With models by experienced miniaturists and a final chapter on the masters, a thoroughly professional, not the least precious treatment.
