1:12 scale glazed doughnuts


So I rarely post my 1:12 scale work because I don't have those fancy SLR cameras that can focus on super tiny (almost microscopic) miniatures. My husband actually has an SLR but I actually don't want to get into macro photography simply because I have too much going on as it is right now.

I made these doughnuts for a commission recently and I thought of sharing it with you. I took the photos using my standard old camera but I guess it doesn't look too out of focus.

Each doughnut is only 0.75cm in diameter for 1/12 scale (based on a Krispy Kreme doughnut)
I included a box for it since it isn't complete without a box!
I always include a freebie for every new Littlest Sweet Shop customer.
Now the pictures above doesn't do it justice. I hate taking photos of miniatures with my fingers in the photo (to show the size of the miniature) like a lot of miniaturist do because my fingers are tiny and long so it wouldn't look as tiny as it should be :p

Honestly, I should have trained to become a classical pianist to make use of my small tiny hands and long fingers.

Anyway, to give you a better perspective of the size of the doughnut - I took a photo of doughnut models in all the different scales that I specialise in.
1/3 scale, 1/6 scale, 1/12 scale

So that is a little lesson in scales. Make sure you choose the right one for your doll and doll house/scene!

I'm kinda preoccupied with sewing recently. I'm making summer dresses for Sadie Sprinkle in an effort to make her look less 'kawaii' and more sophisticated. I will definitely reveal this other hobby on the blog soon and who knows - maybe a Littlest Boutique to be launched soon?

My Puppen Haus kit is still on transit. It's already in the UK but it takes forever for customs to clear it since they take the time to find a way to tax it as much as possible. Sigh, as long as it arrives here safely I'm really not fussed. Just clear it already!

I will be posting more new-in items for the sweet shop hopefully this weekend so I hope you are here to see what else I have been making.

Enjoy the rest of your week! Ta!
