Pastels and a Puppy.


So here are some miniature works of mine, these are part of something bigger. But I thought the rainbow pastel colours were so pretty I wanted to photograph them separately. 

Can you guess what they are?

Another thing, those who follow me on instagram/twitter would know I'm about to have a new addition to my family next week - a puppy!And I'm kind of in a dilemma about his name (yes it's a boy!), so I need some help.
I'm deliberating between either Taro, or Romeo. 

Taken from my instagram.
Follow me, my username's joceaiwei

 (yup I said puppy, not polar bear lol)

What do you think, let me know in the comments! ♥

They were cut and sanded from a toothpick by the way. :)

Making a bento - miniature style. :)

Hello! I just had one of the most amazing weekends, to sum it up I'm finally going to be able to get a furry friend in my household. :) You'll know more if you follow me on twitter or instagram!

So, today I wanted to conduct a little pictorial cooking recipe for bento. Okay, so it's actually a miniature bento.. and it's made of polymer clay so it's inedible.

But I reckon the steps shouldn't be that far off from a real life recipe. Here goes!

Step One of making bento.

First, you'll need some colourful vegetables and eggs. Yes, the cherry tomatoes have eyes on them and the carrots are cut in the shape of the ghosts from the game Dragon Nest!  

 Step Two.

Next, you want to lay out some fresh lettuce leaves on the bento box. 

Step Three.

Now you want to cook rice and make it into a ghost shape (following the Dragon Nest ghost!) and lay it on the lettuce bed.
