1/3 scale collection

Hey hey!

Yes, I did not forget my promise to launch Littlest Sweet Shop's 1/3rd scale (BJD and SD sizes) collection this weekend. I know it's almost 8PM (UK time) and it seems like the hottest day of the year is also my longest!

I've been working on this project non-stop this week and I'm glad to reveal the completed models. I will be making more 1/3 scaled models to add to this collection in the future but here are the available items for now.
1/3 scale models - perfect for SD and BJD dolls

Everything here is captured in natural daylight (or the sunset in my room) with no editing as usual. I will be adding a 1/3 scale menu/category into the blog soon with more details on each item. The reason why the 1/3 scale items will have it's own menu is because it is made differently than the 1/6 and 1/12 scaled items. Unlike 1/6 and 1/12 scaled models, 1/3 scaled models are made using air dried clay and polymer clay. Because of this, the models looks different as it doubles in scale (1/3 scaled models are twice the size of 1/6 scaled models)

Marshmallow flumps, Strawberry Jelly with whipped cream, Candy cane, Lollipops

Pocky sticks in various flavours,

Chocolate-chip and nut cookies, rainbow cookies, Iced sugar cookies, Gingerbread men,

Pancake, Crêpe

Petits Fours/Tea cakes

Doughnuts, Fruit tart, Berry Tart, Strawberry jam tart, Cupcakes, Pretzels

French Pastries:
St. Honoré, Religieuse, Croissants, macarons, Éclair

Popsickles, Ice cream cone, Mr Softee, Parfait, Jello-Ice-Cream, Chocolate dipped cones

So there you have it! These models will be listed in the menu in the upcoming weeks. I hope the images will put a smile on your face and it was certainly more fun to make!

Thanks for visiting - bye!
One last group shot!

Yummy stars

Hi all!

I've been trying to create a lot of new items for a new 1:3 scale range that I've been working on for a few months now. I'm giving myself this whole week to totally complete this project once and for all! No more squeezing 'little' miniature polymer clay projects in between. Yes, I am a procrastinator.

If you follow me on Facebook, you should be updated with some work in progress photos of my 1/3 scale collection. If you still have no idea what I'm up to - here's a sneak peak:

*It is a WIP. I took this photo before they were 'iced' because they look so yummy! 
The yummy star butter cookies are sitting on my brand new Cath Kidston tea set that I got for my birthday.

Do come back this Sunday when I reveal most of my other 1/3 scale collection. You wouldn't want to miss it ;)

Taste and see the rainbow!

Hey hey!!

Sorry that I haven't posted anything for a few weeks now. I have been so busy with a big commission and being host to a friend who was staying over as well. Anyway, I AM BACK!

I was commissioned to make another diorama like the Littlest Sweet Shop and it looks really good after I completed it! It is so much better than my original diorama that I am now inspired to make another one. 

Sadie Sprinkle, my 1:6 Blythe doll (same height as Barbie) helped me to model the new diorama for the sweetest client ever. 

I usually don't do dioramas for clients but this was an exception. Looking at the end results, I'm glad I did it.

Rainbow ice cream in parfait dish with cream

New 'Rainbow' flavour. I would describe it as a Skittles-flavoured ice cream. Every colour represents a different flavour - YUM!

New range of pastel and rainbow scoops

Simply great as a table

Some other details about this diorama:

Shelves are made using Cath Kidston paper
Fits 1/6 dolls such as Blythe, Pullip and Barbie

Hope you enjoy the photos above :)

Triple scoop ice cream cone for a brilliantly sunny Sunday!

We are finally getting the nice warm summer day that we've earned (from braving through one of the worst winter months in history) so treat yourself to the best ice cream cone you can find. Don't limit your scoops to one, make sure you top it with a delicious sauce and go over the top with some delicious decorations.

Go on, you deserve it.
