1:6 Scale Miniature Filled Cereal Storage Containers

Ok, so I have finally decided on how to display the 1:6 Playscale Cereal I made from my last blog post.

I wanted to be able to display them in a way that would showcase them, not hide them in a cereal box or accidentally lose them from the bowl (believe me, the kids and I are still finding tiny pieces of cereal under my work desk... lol. They're so tiny.
I think these Cereal Storage Containers look very realistic and are in perfect 1:6 scale... which is so hard to come by... they are a wonderfully perfect fit.  And of course it wouldn't be complete without the Chalkboard Labels... hmmm.... but I still can't decide if I like those or the Shabby Chic Floral Labels best :o)

1:12 and 1:6 Scale Exremely Detailed Individual Pieces of Cereal

I spent quite a bit of time individually hand-sculpting these cereals... but it was so worth it to me... 
they look completely realistic and are sooooo itsy bitsy teeny tiny in size.

Each individual piece is hand sculpted from polymer clay, then shaded one by one with pastels and chalks to mimic the coated sugar look that these cereals have.  Some also have a satin finish applied for a subtle satiny look seen on cereals.

I think the biggest challenge in making these is getting each individual piece to be the same in shape and size, so that when shown all together in a bowl, they have a cohesive look that adds to their realism in miniature.  

Except for for the Raisin Bran... where each individual flake and raisin has to look different in shape and size to mimic the real life raisin bran cereal.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures, see you all again on my next mini project :o)

1:6 & 1:12 Scale Sweets Decorated Doily Wreaths & Trees

 Last year I made these Sweets Decorated 9" inch & 6" inch & 3" tall Christmas trees.  
But I kinda started on them late in the year and only made a few of them.
As you can imagine... I had to make a great deal of polymer clay cookies, cupcakes, cake pops and donuts to fill them up.  So this year... I'm starting early :o)

In keeping with my *Sweets decorated* Theme, this year I've whipped up some Wreaths too!
I also made some Doily Wreaths for anytime of the year.  I just love the sweetness that they add to any kitchen or bakery scene.

I am also going to create a real-life full-sized sweets decorated Christmas Tree for my Sons to enjoy this Holiday Season.
I am making life-sized polymer clay cookies and cake pops and other sweets to decorate our tree.  I can't wait to have it all completed in this larger size.  I will be sure to post pictures here once it's completed.
Hope you all enjoy the pictures :o)

1:6 Playcale Personalized Starbucks Coffee Cups

These were a custom order for a lovely lady. 
They are completely personalized with names and Drink Codes.

I also customized one with my Name and favorite Drink Code on it too, just couldn't resist... lol
I'm a complete Coffee Fanatic and simply cannot start my day without a cup first thing in the morning, so I just love seeing this personalized cup in my Playscale display every morning ;o)

1:12 & 1:6 Scale Cutlery Trays & Silverware

 This week I have been re-vamping my miniature Cutlery Trays with a new look.
I saw this style at an online shop in the UK and fell in love with this wonderfully cottage-y, shabby chic look and slightly distressed finish.  Original Tray shown below:

I created the design on my computer and hand-cut the trays from Balsa wood.
Now I can organize my miniature silverware in style ;o) and of course I made some extra ones for my etsy shop too.
