More Tiny Things and A New Project

Old Mushrooms

There have been a few other projects I've finished in the last week or so. They've mostly been using polymer clay but I've had a few miniatures using other materials.


Here's a couple of paper bags I folded from 100% recycled paper, the larges being about 1 1/2 in. tall.
(I really need to remember to measure all these up with a proper ruler and not just guesstimate. :P

Pretty Planter

And here's a planter that I had bought already made with the intention of painting oh say... two months ago. Yes, I work fast. :D
I finally sat down to paint it all one color but I started painting the rose and the design came from there. I liked it so much I didn't know what else to add to it, at least something that wouldn't make it too busy. I might add some real or embroidered moss around the top edges and maybe just use it as a vase to hold pretty flowers, not sure yet. We shall see.

Antlers (pre-baking)

I've had a love at first sight with Mori (forest) Girl fashion from the get go and I've been seeing a lot more antler themed looks going around the blogosphere and such that I figured I'd give some small antlers a try. I just have to find the time to bake them, maybe tonight... I hope. :3 Haven't burned anything yet!

And just for fun a close up of the tiny raspberry from the previous post.
Teeny Tiny Raspberry

Well off to work now, maybe I can sneak in some crocheting. ;D

Tiny obsession...

I've finally settled on miniatures, crafts, and ball-jointed dolls for this blog. Of course I'll also insert a bit of randomness once in a while, it's me after all. ^_^"

I'm horrid at introductions so I'll just dive in and wait to post a formal intro later. >.> Bear with me here...

Yay, my first picture!
... Sorry, I'm easily entertained. Haha!

Anywho... I've been on a tiny kick recently and have been trying my hand at making miniatures using polymer clay. So far I've been doing great, haven't burned one yet at least. Hehe. The photo above is actually of a trio of red cap mushrooms that I sculpted using Super Sculpey and painted with acrylics after baking.

These are all the sweets I've made thus far. Hopefully you can make all of them out.
- Blue bubblegum icecream cone
- Wrapped candies
- Cherry tart
- Cookies filled with raspberry jam
- Donuts
- Sucker (was aiming for a blowpop type wrapper... but that didn't work out so well)
- And a teeny, tiny raspberry! My favorite, it took quite a long time. I have to see if I can't figure out a better, faster way of making them.

That's it for now, I have a few projects in the works and a few others to share but still need to edit some photos.
