1:6 Playscale Mixers


Ok, so I finally worked up the nerve to paint these little cuties.  I just had to have one in Pale Pink & Aqua Blue.  These little mixers look so much like the real-life KitchenAid Mixers and I am absolutely in-Love with them.  They were made in the 1990's and are extremely difficult to find anymore.

I made alot of customizations to them.  They were painted, and then glossed.
I adjusted the bowl so that it is removable, this way the paddle can be showcased too.
All the black knobs and really tiny screws were added and then I installed the cords with silver-tipped plugs at the end.
The tiny screws are from an old broken laptop I took apart just for the screws...lol.  
The thin white cords and plugs were from new ear-piece speakers I took apart, and all the little realistic pins and levers were from pieces in my sewing and tool kit.

    1. Hi Natasha, Yes I do have one available ready for customizations if you would like one.
      You can choose the color of the mixer and the color of the cord too, I have been making the cords in both white and black (just like the real-life ones). I have been so slow to list it in my etsy shop... I can get so caught up with new projects and custom orders and everything just winds up temporarily on the back burner...lol Send me an etsy convo. :o)
      Talk to you soon,
      Roxanne
