Nasi Lemak in 1:12, done during a lesson with beginner student (partly demonstrated by me)....i don't feel comfortable saying it's done entirely by her (she insisted the fish was mostly done by me LOL we were running out of time and I had to show her!)
was a little too ambitious in trying to squeeze these many items into a 2-hr lesson, especially to someone who's totally new to miniature-making and clay! this was done in air dry clay, which is something i often recommend to newcomers, mostly because there's lesser investment than polymer clay....i think we did pretty well :) She was really fun to teach, and very understanding about my situation.
PERSONAL STUFF HERE!!!
(NOT a favourite, but eh....)
I had fallen ill with food poisoning the night before, i thought i'd shaken it but midway through the lesson i had to go uhhh toss my cookies again :( i was so sick that i couldn't make it to the clinic until thursday (the lesson was on last tues night), and by saturday i was still puking my guts out (that's just the least of it :X :X :X ), in fact i think i'd even reacted badly to the antibiotics -_-" dad 'kidnapped' me to the hospital for treatment despite my protests (and tears, yes, i hate going to hospitals THAT MUCH), doc wanted to ward me but i insisted on getting out, so she said ok, 2 hr observation after medication and re-hydration....so that's my umpteenth drip in this lifetime. the backs of my hands are practically freckled with drip scars i'm so sick of hospitals AUGH!! curse this weak stomach and constitution.
so that was last week. i'm MUCH better now, although a little lonesome cos bf had to go in this week for reservist training. that joker told me he was so relieved, and applauded my dad's tactics in getting me treated -_-" he said at least he knew i'm being cared for while he's away...i suppose this episode has taught me that............
ER docs have a great sense of humour.
so does dad.
and i must have, too, since i'm grinning at the recollection of it all.
so back to miniatures. where's that CNY post I promised eh!??!?!
there's been a lot of differently scaled items i have been working on, mainly this 1:24 commission that came in early last week. i only have 1 item in the list left to complete, but since my hands cramped up rather badly since i had to use tweezers to wrap these teeny tinies, i decided to take a break and update this blog.
a 1:12 vs 1:24 pic. that's a re-make of the toffee coin i talked about re-doing previously.
more choc chip cookies, this time i coloured it to match the cookies on the packaging, though not as picture perfect, i mean c'mon, the cookies i buy seldom ever look as promised on the package!!!
when the request came in for these 1:24 items, i thought to myself....geee.....really?? can i do it? i'd already struggled with the 1:12 versions.....and the 1:24 ones would be what, 1mm long!!!! but you know what, i'd already prepared the packagings for my 1:24 roombox, so i decided to accept the challenge. they were so tiny i packed them up for easier manipulation.
wow you're still reading? thanks! i always try and ramble less, but i'm bored and forcing myself to relax the hands so i can continue working later.....
i have 1 more item to complete, as i've said earlier, but here's a semi-group shot :)
back to larger scaled items.......
1:3 heart shaped choc cookies
part of an older commission
aaaaand, another request (2 actually) for 1:6 aka playscale (Barbie, Blythe, Pullip, YoSD) Goldfish Crackers. might list these if there's any demand. oh and the shapes are new and the smiles individually put on :) my newer 1:12 versions will be a similar shape, there's only 1 left of the older design in my Etsy, if anyone's interested. The newer version will cost more, since they are more laborious to make and come with (in?) laser printed packaging.
ok i think that's it for now. there'll be more updates and items added to my Etsy hopefully by next week.
back to work!
