1:6 salad (on a rement plate cos i can't find a glass bowl in 1:6 and 1:12 :( )
1:12 in sylvanian families bowl
1:6 vs 1:12, cos i really like big-small pics ^ ^
after hours and hours of mixing clays and colours to get the greens i wanted, i think i will definitely tackle more green projects. i still have a bit of trouble with the darker colours, but am sure it will go away with more practice. and practice i did!
group shot! i'm thinking of using the last pic for my new website, planning to go down to bf's office next 2 weeks to revamp the site. the blog will remain on blogspot, but i want to fully utilize the hosting space which has been dormant for a while now :( maybe even set up a gallery and shopping cart, let's see how distracted i get first.....wakakakaka :X
and just when you thought this looooooooooooooooong post was over...;P
tadah! more of the 1:12 cucumbers. see how the 'thick' green portion translates pretty well in 1:12? i have had a little more experience working with 1:12 canes than the larger scales, so i really wanted -this-, not the larger scales. it's ok though *licks own wounds* sob sob (CINDY OMG LET IT GO!!!! XD XD XD)
in keeping with the sliced theme....here're some sliced versions i made a while back but never 'finished'. i hope you can see the teeny bitty seeds....... you might have to squint just like i did when i put them in XD
i'm so happy with these! over here, we call them 'brinjals'. i think they're also known as eggplant or aubergine (man i love pronouncing that word, it sounds almost sexy XD ). they're my grandma's favourite vegetable. although i do think this part is called the fruit???? ionos, i always think seeds = fruit. anyhow, there's an old wives' tale about how if you eat too much of this your eyesight will get bleary....i believe it!!! i once went on this eggplant kick and ate it for lunch for a whole week....at the end of that week i kept rubbing my eyes, it felt sticky and stuff, could be coincidental to weather conditions or whatever but I BELIEVE IT!!!!
i'm also really happy cos for the first time ever, both my grandma and dad recognized something i placed in their hands -_-"""""" they're my harshest critics!!!
not so pleased with the sliced ones, cos i overdid it on the skin part, ah well. i have a few unbaked brinjals waiting for their 'hats' hee hee. will finish them later....
are we there yet???? NO. :P but i hope you're still with me......hang in there........
as per one of my previous posts, i started making new plastic packaging in 1:12. here're some cherry tomatoes....
and i made covers for the punnets!!! they fit pretty snugly (for this batch anyway) so i'm really patting my own back sore by now! :P XD
all that's left are the labels. which is another thing i need to finish when i'm over at bf's office. i can't concentrate at home, the clay calls out to me............
does this post really need more cucumbers?!?!??!?! wakaka.
the lettuce heads turned out surprisingly cool in the pics, but in real life it looks chalky. it was part of my earlier attempts with greens gah. also, the leaves need to be thinner grrrrr
oh hey, pears! this time i made the yellower kind......
and a few citrus fruits to round things up.
i will tackle tropical fruits soon! poor lone mango........trying to blend in with the plums........
ahhaha some inconsiderate shoppers have 'sampled' the berries while they were on the shelves! tsk tsk!
almost there!!! almost there!!! i still have more to do!!!!
ok the last bit, i promise :)
for the sharp-eyed who noticed this in the previous pic.....ehehehe. i have completed my macrame hanging thingy practice! i got the pattern off this site:
but i had to modify it as the threads i used were a tad thick :( no matter, it was meant to be a practice piece anyway and i like how it turned out! i want to tackle making green plants now that i'm a little more confident with the colour ^ ^
hope i didn't put you all to sleep :) time for a break, wow it took me only 4 hours to do up this post *eyes roll*
