Small things really are cute, aren’t they? Like, squirrels, puppies, kittens, baby Pooh and TY Beanie Babies! And, if I may, miniature sweets are very cute too!
This week I tried making items that are significantly smaller than the 1:2 scale that I’m used to work on. Of course, I made 1:6 scale sweets (for my dolls) when I started playing with clay, and 1:3 and 1:4 scale items for The Doll Affair. But what fuelled my motivation was I saw some miniature sweets made into cute ear studs and pinky rings, and I thought I absolutely must have that! But alas, I’m saving up to pay for this blog, so I sat down in my work area and started working.
Small macaron shells. At first I was just trying to use a coloured clay straight out of the packet, but along the way I added all kinds of other clay, so that is why you see purple of different shades here. These are 1:3 scale at best, I believe? The only reference I have to model doll-sized creations after is a 1:3 scale BJD hand, but even so it is too small.
