banana and chocolate - match in culinary heaven.

Mmm.. miniature 1/12th scale filled tarts handsculpted with polymer clay.

I've gotten some wonderful suggestions on what to fill them with here, and it's ironical that the I had lavishly filled some of them with bananas, because none of the suggestions involved that. haha.

BUT, there is CHOCOLATE! and lots of people mentioned that. :) So there, I did listen! haha, and there are more tarts to fill up, and this time I plan to use some of your suggestions. :)

and there are also some strawberries (which was revealed to be a huge favourite) and cream tarts lurking amongst all the yellow creaminess.

 and I finally received my miniature cutlery, love 'em! They're really tiny, but so detailed. :)

alright, got to rush off for now! CIAO!

Mom I know breakfast is the healthiest meal of the day..

but this is way too much!

Here we have a heapful of miniature 1/12th scale waffles handsculpted with polymer clay.

Probably baked by an over-zealous mother eh?

or someone with near-expiring flour, butter and eggs.

But definitely someone with waffle-makers in various shapes.
There's the widely-loved heart-shapes, usual circular shapes, weird dew/oval shapes, and more.

i feel full just looking at them.
where's the maple syrup!

here comes my rant of the day.
A chocolate bread (yes, made from authentic flour and eggs and butter. i don't eat my creations despite popular belief haha) I had this afternoon is giving me a mild fever. Now that's something new! Heaty food giving you sore throats, tummyaches are common, but FEVER? Sigh.

oh, and please let me have my second rant haha.
I am deeply envious of all who can sculpt and produce so much stock so fast! I feel like someone has been stealing my hours from me, but actually I know it's because I sit at the computer for crazy periods of time, NOT sculpting. :(

The weather's so chilly and windy, very unlike Singapore now eh, fellow Singaporeans?
Papers and empty boxes are flying all over the house.

-scurries off after them.

hey who sneaked into my can of chips!

Here, we have some miniature 1/12th scale potato chips entirely handsculpted by me with polymer clay.

Over here in Singapore and most parts in Asia, we call them potato chips. In other places, I know they're referred to as just 'chips', for a popular sandwich chain at least. Or crisps.

Whatever the name, I bet everyone is familiar with this popular snack food!

Mmm. Just a little story to ponder upon when you're munching on these crunchies in front of the tv.
Potato chips came about all because a New York chef was really pissed off with an unsatisfied customer, who felt his potatoes were too thick.

And so angrily, he sliced them up so thin that they couldn't be eaten with a fork.

So you see, anger does breed some good sometimes. :)


Shown beside a regular matchstick for scale.

Each potato chip/crisp measures at approximately 0.5cm in width.

I'm still trying hard to be productive in hopes of having a busy, crowded booth table on 19th December.
So far, I've got plenty of miniature waffles and tarts to fill.

And so many decisions to make.
How to display the miniature foods, if I should attach them to the plates, if I should buy a table-cloth, how shall I price them, where should I buy my boxes..

SIGH. I'm kind of just crossing my fingers and hoping things would work out somehow by the 19th.
and nursing a bad headache today didn't help. :(

Right. Hoping everyone's had a better day! :)

and my dream tart would be..

Do you like tarts?

I do, and I think these crusty, savoury delights have such a cute name. Tart!

although it wouldn't be too good to call a woman that though, HMM.

these biscuits are always filled with all sorts of tasty treats.

well, we've got the usual and most-loved fruit tarts.
The bright colours of the fruits often 'pop' on the ochre tart shells,
making them seem so much more appetising too.

and then there are the savoury kinds, which are filled with meat or pickled stuffs?

and then of course you've got the kids' favourites (okay who am i kidding, adults love them too).
those that are simply slapped on with dollops of chocolate, and TADAH.

you have chocolate tarts.


What's YOUR favourite tart?

Do tell me about it (or them), so that I can get some inspiration to fill up these empty tart shells! :)

Just a Simple Orange Slice

i am feeling really lazy today (it's the slightly chilly weather, makes me so sleepyyy.),
so this shall be a short post.


The almond-shaped base measures at 1.5cm in length, and 0.8cm at its widest.

it's for sale HERE.
Clicking on the link would also allow you to read a bubbly-ier description than the lacklustre one here. :)

Oh, how can I forget!

I've been accepted to my first ever exhibition booth at The Doll Affair, happening on 19th December 2009 at Suntec City Convention Hall.
HOWEVER, it is a ticketing event, and tickets are at a rather hefty $12 each, so I wouldn't be asking anyone to come down and support me. Encouraging words would suffice! :)

Now I have to start sculpting and building on my inventory!
I really don't want a near-empty table on 19th December! :)

The Orange Smile

I've rearranged miniature orange segments on a heart-shaped Tiffany blue base.
and it's supposed to look like a winking smiley-face.

   like this!  

 but the boyfriend just informed me that he can't tell it's a face, nor is it smiling. :(

The heart-shaped base measures at 1.4cm across at its widest.

I really love the pairing of the cool blue wintry color, with the warm orange,
and the combination just pops on ears!

it's for sale HERE.

Okay, now I just need you guys to reassure me that you can see the smiley face too. :)
-sticks tongue out at the boyfriend.

Everyone's going to stare at your ears..

now that you've ditched your usual earrings, and are wearing miniature food on them! :)

okay cheesy hard-sell haha! but I really would wear this anytime over conventional jewelry.

Salmon Sushi Platter -Earring Studs

I want my salmon sashimi now. -cries.

The salmon sushi platter measures at 1.5cm in length, and 0.8cm in width. :)

for me?? really? awwww. :)

Thank you Kiva (who is by the way, my newest miniaturist idol. you HAVE got to visit her blog.), this is my first ever blog award! haha, alright now I feel pretty loser-ish. :P

SO, let me follow the rules carefully haha.

The award rules are:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

 I've done the first three points, so here's number 4!

7 things about yourself that no one would really know

  • Years ago during Chinese New Year, I had a branch (of the pussywillow!) poke into my eye and tear the top layer (i have no idea what's the scientific term). It hurt like mad, and there was internal bleeding and everything. Till now, there are times when I wake up too suddenly (i.e. open my eyes too fast) and it would create this little tear, and my eye would hurt for the entire day. it's the right eye btw.

(oh gosh it's only the first, and i've already ranted on for so long, let me cut the rest short! heh.)

  • My secondary school was really strict and only allowed girls in the dance troop to have hair past shoulders. So I had really short hair for four years then.
  • My current boyfriend is my first, and we've been together for 2 years and going strong! 

(oh no i'm running out of interesting stuffs, and am turning to boring facts. EEKS.)

  • There was a period I told people I was born on 23rd March, when I'm really born on 22nd March. Only because I couldn't remember my own birthdate..
  • Erm, pretty related to the above, I can be quite absent-minded sometimes.Just that day, I panicked when I couldn't feel my handphone anywhere in my pockets. Until my boyfriend on the other line reminded me that I'm on the handphone. AHEM.
  • I feel depressed when I see old people alone by themselves.
  • When I imagine any emergency (airplane fire, trapped in a lift, helium balloon sinking haha), I always see myself as the heroine, leading everyone else out of danger. haha! :) 
 Phew, finally that's done. Now I get to pick 7 others! All of them are incredibly talented miniaturists, and if you like what you see in my blog, you will LOVE their creations.

Good ol' chocolate chip cookies!

These are miniature chocolate chip cookies, entirely handsculpted by me with polymer clay.

While sculpting them, I had the strongest temptation to bake REAL cookies, especially with that soon-expiring pot of Hershey's cocoa in my fridge.
but I didn't, and would have to settle for these miniature ones instead.

i know i tend to put up photos which look similar haha, but look!
there's a heap of strawberries instead of the sugar pot and jar. :)


 the trusty matchstick is out again for scale reference.
Cookies measure at 0.5cm in width, perfect for 12th scale miniatures!
