Garie,

The cake looks wonderful!! And I laughed out loud when I saw the knife -
it's so cute!

I have a question on what thinner to use - on the one hand it looks like
you're saying to use natural thinners like turpentine, but then it says you
can't use turpentines and mineral oils. I may be misreading it a bit.

What specific thinner/solvent did you use for your paints?

Your website is amazing and I can easily spend hours on it. Thanks for
keeping us updated on your projects.

Sandy

Sandi, Although I've posted earlier, I have not answer your question.

What specific thinner/solvent did you use for your paints?<

The thinner is use for mixing with vinyl paint to thin it or dilute it when painting wooden
staircase railing, doors and windows.
You can also mix the thinner with lacquer so that the varnish of the floor will dry faster. I
think it is a common household solvent.
I am not sure what brand that is available, but it is also use in thinning the car paints use
in spray painting auto repair workshop.

The above should be the type as I read the information and they are not expensive solvent.
Regarding the safty concerns, I have created many mixtures, and baked them in the oven
at 130ºC it will not ignite or create fume in the oven even at 150ºC for 20 to 30 minutes.

Regards,
Garie

Thanks Joy, I did sent you a reply just after you have posted, but there was a delivery
problem with Yahoo, by now it is cleared.
Realistic miniature cake is like baking the real stuff in the oven, someone jokingly even
asked me whether I can put aroma in the cake. Well, that is possible, I know you can add
fragrant strawberry, apple, etc. into the clay.
