Commission and Activity update

Good morning Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a commission for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in America. It is a very special commission since the order is for 1/12 scale (dollhouse miniature scale) food. Even though most of our products are made in 1/6 scale, we can also make selected items in 1/12 scale. Please ask if you are not sure!

We used a 1 penny coin (British currency) and my own hands to show the scale. 

One of the item is for a custom jar of rainbow puff balls! I had to roll hundreds of tiny balls to fill up the jar but aren't they cute? Some items such as the 1/6 scale Mermaid Seashell, Mini marshmallows and Heart Fruit drops. These sweets are small enough to be applicable in 1/12 scale.

The order also included some 1/6 scale items:

Various 1/6 scale sweets and treats
I also conducted a workshop for a group called Anglian Miniaturists. I designed and taught them how to make realistic stone/brick surfaces and even tiling for dolls houses and dioramas. I'm glad everyone had a go and created their own unique surface to decorate their projects.

Here is some work I produced for the workshop.

Plenty of new upcoming projects is lined up for the next few weeks so come visit us again - we are always here!
