Miniature Bread w/ Baking Powder (DIY Tutorial) by thinkpastel Miniature Bread w/ Baking Powder (DIY Tutorial) by thinkpastel
A "recipe" for realistic miniature bread that almost feels like baking real bread: all you need is water, baking powder and.. well, polymer clay instead of flour!:happybounce:

This was adapted from this tecnique (wich is probably my all-time favourite!!).
However, this method uses just polymer clay, instead of Liquid polymer clay (which is quite pricey!).
Also, you won't need any mold!

All you have to do is to knead the baking soda into the polymer clay and shape it as you want before baking. So much fun! :mashedpotato: 

Ps. After a few tests, I found that while you can color the bread with chalks before baking, the colour does wear off a little, so I suggest to paint your miniatures with acrylic paints instead
:wink

Awesome, thank you for that! I really don't like using molds and liquid clay, so it's great to know you can achieve fantastic results without them :)

This is super duper cool! But I do have one question:

How'd you get the split along the top of the crust? Did that happen on its own in the oven or did you sculpt that in? I might have missed something, but in the video it looked like you just sculpted a plain log with no texture on the outside and it came out of the oven with that split.

I've tried this method a couple times, and I've nearly got the inside down, I just need to make the outside look realistic too!

You got it right, unfortunately there is no control over the 'split'.
It's the result of the clay expanding for the combination of baking powder and heat.
I've tried several times to see if I could purposely give the bread that 'split': made a cut on the clay, twisted/folded it like I would do with actual bread.. none of that worked!
I'm afraid that there is no way to predict if and where the 'split' will appear :shrug:

Anyhow, I have to say that even without 'splits' the outside texture comes pretty good, unlike the 'liquid clay' method (with liquid clay the outside is usually very even and shiny; with this method it looks grainy and rough) :giggle:
