I'm back! And in time for Singapore Doll Carnival 2013!

Okay, so this isn't in 1:12, but for the next few months, I will be working on larger scales! Read on to find out why! (cross posted on the dolly blog)


Okay, these aren't for the carnival, they are part of a commission which my very patient and lovely customer had asked for! I've already showed the pastry/cakes portion (mostly via my Instagram and Facebook page), but the commission also included a wide range of foods, many of which I have never made in mini before, so alot of time was spent experimenting on textures and new techniques, partly why the whole commission took so long as I re-made quite a number of items as I was dissatisfied with the results. :X 

 Miniature 1:3 scale Schnitzel, air dry clay
 Miniature 1:3 scale sausage platter, with salads and sauerkraut (?), air dry clay
 Miniature 1:3 scale potato side dish. I've never been too fond of potatoes up till recently, maybe this was the trigger!!!, air dry clay
 Miniature 1:3 scale borscht (supposed to be beetroot + beef too?), air dry clay + epoxy resin 
Miniature 1:3 scale apple strudel, air dry clay

1:3 scale miniature boutique pastries and cakes. air dry clay. 
so here's the pastry portion of the order, all made with air dry clay :) for those who ask about what brands I use, you can check out my FAQ here. I'm sorry but it's just too involved with too many steps to make tutorials, and if I ever do want to get that book done, gotta leave some information for that to happen right? XD am entertaining the idea of making individual tutorials for sale, but given the various scales and mediums I unsure of where to start :( just thinking about it........*mind wanders off again*
 Miniature 1:3 scale Arabica
 Miniature 1:3 scale Elysees
 Miniature 1:3 scale Plaisir Sucre
 Miniature 1:3 scale Apple Tarte Tatin
 Miniature 1:3 scale Corolle Feuilletee Caramel
 Miniature 1:3 scale Paris Brest
 Miniature 1:3 scale Chou Chantilly Nougatine
 Miniature 1:3 scale Caramel St Honore
 Miniature 1:3 scale Pistachio St Honore
 Miniature 1:3 scale Raspberry St Honore
Miniature 1:3 scale Chocolate St Honore

healthwise, I'm still recovering from a recurring shoulder injury, made worse by an impromptu table-tennis session with bro and dad :O BUT THERE IS NO REST FOR THE WEARY or depressed or in pain cos......
