Miniature: Salad and Mayonnaise by fiat500S Miniature: Salad and Mayonnaise by fiat500S
Playscale miniatures (1:6), handmade as props for my dollhouse.

Sorry for the long hiatus! I was sort of... addicted to watching Sherlock. Bwahaha...!

Anyways, I really enjoyed making this, especially the mini tomatoes. I mainly used polymer clay and liquid sculpey. It's a typical salad that I remember from life in England, plus egg mayonnaise. The bowls are cut out from scrap plastic containers.

The tomatoes are basically sculpted polymer clay and translucent clay, plus a dab of gloss for the juicy bit in the middle. :)

Many thanks for your appreciation! ^-^

Oh wow! I never woulda thought of that!!!!! Hey, I just learned about this the other day and I think youd enjoy this...I found on pinterest a link that describes how to peel those little metal eyeshadow tins out of the plastic and use them as baking trays/pans for your minis!!! I pulled some out but havent crafted with em yet. Theres LOTS of sizes and shapes to mess with out there too

Great minds think alike! I also recently discovered that as well, to remove the little metal make-up tins. The circular ones are the coolest. It's like baking in miniature scale. ^^
Thanks for your comment.

I just cut out the bases of containers which had snacks in them (the black plastic used to have sushi in it).
Yeah me too - it's fun to re-create a miniature from old packaging.

Many thanks again!
