Petits Filous in 1-24

here is the most challenging request i've had to date. a 1:24 scale dollhouse miniature of "Petits Filous" which is a popular yoghurt pot (i think?)...i've tried the other yoplait pots, they were a 'test' to see if i could tolerate yoghurt - mainly in taste and cos was really lactose intolerant back then...too much info? :P




  7mm x 5mm x 2mm diameter for the pots.
in case you were wondering, yes, i made the individual plastic pots using the vacuumform method i've mentioned a few times previously. had to form a 'tap and die' out of acrylic rod and spare acrylic piece i had lying around, then form pots using it, cut the pots, fill with resin, work on the graphics, print out the decals, and assemble. see the random empty pots in the background? those are the rejects, only 8 usable pots came out of 50+ pieces of wasted trial and errors. :(

which is why i am going to limit my commissioned items LOL. it's a lot of work over 3 days just to get it done. i hope my customer likes it. :)

========================================

*sings* one of these pastries is not like the other....~~can you tell which? :P will be made available soon as i finish up some other odds and ends. :E




another 1:6 request i completed recently. they look so big here! :O had to make a new macaron shape for my customer as she prefers the rounder type, i personally prefer the flatter look, but in re-examining these photos, i think the ispahan does look cute ^ ^

now that i'm finishing up the commissions, i feel somewhat more relaxed and am excited to work on the ideas that have been brewing in my head the past 3 months! WATCH OUT WORLD RAWRRRRRRRRRRR

  1. hehe I actually like the rounder macaroons too! The flatter ones look more elegant I think, the rounder one has a cute feeling :)

  3. Dearie we were talking of you and here you are with a new masterpiece !!!
    Have we already told you that you are nut ?
    And did I already thank you for the FABULOUS tea boxes ?
    If not it's been super rude of me but not out of unthankfullness because I couldn't stop at looking at them.
    We talked so much of you singing your praise that writing slipped through my mind, it was a bit like having you here. A big big hug just for you , Rosanna
