Miniature: Watermelon by fiat500S Miniature: Watermelon by fiat500S
Playscale miniatures (1:6), handmade as props for my dollhouse. I used polymer clay, acrylic paint and gloss. It was nice to make something other than desserts for a change! Yes, I know the pips are a little too large. ;)

Now I better head back to watching more Sherlock... ;D

The best clay watermelon I have ever seen. My compliments to you. I have also been browsing your gallery and I find that all of your work is as good as this. WOW! Nice work. It also seems that your transparent clays become a lot more transparent than anyone elses.

Well I see where I can improve with this watermelon, nevertheless I wholly appreciate your wonderfully kind words! About my transparent clay, I didn't notice that, but it's probably due to the lighting in the photo.

Wow, thank you for the kind words! It was all about how much 'pomegranate' colour fimo to apply to the translucent clay (with a bit of yellow as well), and then texture it. I'm really glad it turned out okay. ^^

Aww, don't be nervous about it. Using up clay for experimentation is all part of the learning process. :)
