New arrivals for March: 1:3 scale Littlest Fast Food (commissioned)

Greetings Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a 1:3 scale commission update. A Smart Doll owner in America wanted the Littlest Fast Food miniature made for the doll so we scaled up the range to twice the original size. Since this is the first time that we made the Fast Food in 1:3 scale, it is also our new products for this month.

The 1:3 scale version is made almost identical to the original miniature version. We used polymer clay for the food so it is more durable and printed the packaging and boxes on a thicker paper.
Each food item comes loose in the boxes for more play value. The burger boxes are sold separately so you can always order just the boxes.
The hamburgers somehow look so much more edible in this scale, probably since it is double the size so you can actually see the detail of the glossy wet ketchup.

Just like in the miniature version, you can order the food with bites taken off it. The client ordered the hamburger with a first bite. Check out the details of the bread and meat texture since it is so much clearer in this scale.

The 1:3 scale milkshakes come in big plastic cups so your dolls will have more to quench their thirst! The lid has been vacuum formed and hand-made to look like the real thing.

The fries and curly fries do not come fixed/glued to the box so your dolls can eat a piece at a time. We also vacuum formed a little plastic condiment tray so you can have them dipped in ketchup.

For those of you wondering about the size of 1:3 scale, here is a comparison between the different burger sizes. Please note that not all of our miniatures are available in other scales (we mainly focus on 1:6 scale) so do check the description on each item for the availability. For example the hamburger is not available in 1:12 scale but we can do a Cheese Burger in 1:12 since it doesn't have sesame seeds on the bun.

That is all the new items for March. All of the other new miniatures will be launched in April but it will be a good one consisting the updated 2018 sculpts for cupcakes and ice cream cones. There will also be new 1:12 scale cupcakes, new tableware, chocolates, groceries and so much more. In May I will be taking another 1 month vacation in Asia where I will learn how to make miniature Malaysian food and most probably spend most of my weeks chilling by a swimming pool. Me and my husband take a big holiday to Asia once a year and hopefully next year we will be going to Japan again for a month. Littlest Sweet Shop may be closed in May but Sculpey will be publishing my exclusive tutorials and blogs when we are on holiday. More information on being Sculpey's Blogger of the Month very soon.

Commission update: Sweets and Candy for a 1:6 scale Sweet Shop!

Holla Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a commission that I made for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in America. She ordered enough sweets and candy for her Barbies to open their very own sweet shop and some hearty baos. Her shop theme was shabby-chic so some items were made in bespoke colours just for the client. Our best-selling sweets were also made in custom pinks and purple colours.

Custom coloured Gummy Bears

Chocolate wafer biscuit rolls
Pole candy to fit 1/2 bottle
Wrapped sweets and some in custom colours
Lollipops with stand

All enough to fit 1/2 jar. Pastel Easter mini eggs, Piped meringues, chocolate bonbons, marshmallow flumps
Iced gem cookies with additional custom colours: chocolate, purple and light pink
Large Bao
Bao with pork filling
I would also like to show you how we pack our miniatures. They are sealed in individual compartments in a food-safe plastic bag. This keeps the miniatures safe for shipping and it is easier to see the contents clearly. Littlest Sweet Shop collectors can also leave the miniatures in the packaging if they wish to.

That's all for today. Make sure to check-out our new tutorial on the Youtube channel and I am still making some new items to launch in March so please come back and visit us regularly.

Commission update: 1:12 scale sweets and an announcement

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers

I just shipped out 2 commission yesterday so I have a bit of free time to write about another commission for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in England. Like many of our visitors, she too was inspired to have her own sweet shop in 1:12 scale. She ordered our popular rainbow lollipop and some humbugs to start with.

In other news, you can now view some of my 'Spring' and 'Easter' miniatures at the Wayland Dragonfly art gallery in Watton, England. 

That's not all! I will also be conducting a workshop there so if you want to learn how to make miniatures with me, please book a place at this link:

Since I have time again, there will be a new Youtube tutorial next week for rainbow pancakes and I am currently creating more new items to debut for March. Please support Littlest Sweet Shop by subscribing to the channel and keep us open!
