1  Re: Barbeque/picnic food + drink (image heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by kitten59 on: September 05, 2008 02:46:15 AM
You guys, I haven't been here in ages!! Hi  Cheesy!! I'll post some new pics very soon and also be back to check out all the new, amazing creations I know I've been missing. Thanks so much!

LOL, CraftyZedral, merci beaucoup- a better compliment you could not have paid me, honestly!

thatsneat, yes, I do cane! Do I like making really intricate, complicated canes? Hell no  Cheesy! I make them when I have to, but I get more joy out of the actual sculpting. I actually use shading, say with artist's pastels, before baking...but sometimes I will add a touch of color with acrylic paints after it's baked. I use those chalks like no one's business- love em! You know, the very first time I made bread, I just looked at it and was just so unsatisfied and I knew I was missing something (this was before I got my hands on any of the popular how-to books). In frustration, I grabbed some of my matte brown eyeshadow and started brushing it over the tops of my bread. It was one of the biggest "aha!" moments, ever Wink! I danced around like a maniac because my bread suddenly looked like freaking bread, lol!! So yep, I must own hundreds of chalks and I use them ALL the time! I am a regular contributor to American Miniaturist, Dollhouse Miniatures, Dollshouse World, Dollshouse and Miniature Scene, and one article in a Spanish mag. What happened was, a woman spotted my work on ebay about 3 or so years ago and started buying some of my pieces. It turned out that she was a writer for miniature mags in the U.S. and she wrote an article on my work for AM magazine. They asked me to become a regular contributor after that. Some other people wrote articles on my work for those other mags as well, and that's how I started. I write how-to's for them now. But a dvd of my collected how-to's is in the works- when I find out the release date, I'll let you guys know! I have a scan of the Spanish article and I'll post it here. I hope this is allowed!?

Kimmermonroe- thank you mommy for me :-D ! WOW, she has been making miniatures for 40 years?? She must be GREAT! I would love to see some of her creations!!

p.s. There is a tutorial on making Rainbow trout in Spanish. I think it might be easy to follow even if you don't speak Spanish  Wink

Thanks guys!!! I made some stuffed acron squash yesterday. I was looking through one of my cookbooks and found it, so I made it:

Here you go- this is one of the few dessert like things I've made (about a year ago)  Undecided

You guys are so sweet  Cheesy!!
Monkeythumb, it's a quarter, but I sometimes do "dime sized", lol! I actually prefer smaller (1:24 and 1:48) but there is not as much demand for that scale, compared to 1:12.

Lady Rando, thank you so much!! But I have friends who make unfreakingbelievabl e food, too...especially dessert, something I don't make (I can't get into it). I'm more the unusual (sometimes weird!) food maker- and I love my meat, poultry, seafood, ethnic food, stuff like that  Cheesy.

I finally finished this last commission. It took me a couple days. Here's a group shot, then a couple single shots:

Thank you!!
OMG, Lmcbride, that was so hilarous! Trust me, you would cringe if you saw, not to mention tasted, my attempts at REAL food! Hideous!! I have no patience for actual cooking, but I have endless patience for making miniatures. Heck, if I can sit there and make not one but two of those damned rice platters, well....I must be insane!? It did nearly push me over the edge though.

Those herbs are real chopped herbs! I love using real herbs but I have made a clay version. I just roll the clay out super super thin and flake off tiny pieces.

I managed to snap a pic of my roasted hens next to a coin. This is what I've been making for the past couple days. I'm kinda tired of making this hen platter and yet more potatoes, but if someone asks, I make. Next is cuttlefish.

Someone asked me about making rice and it just so happened that I had to make rice, so here it is. It's actually wild rice pilaf. It's translucent with a tiny smidge of white and a tiny smidge of brown. There are lighter grains in there as well, more like a cream color than a brownish. The darker grains are very dark brown- brown with a smidge of black. I just roll out super skinny snakes of clay and chop...chop...chop. And more chopping  Tongue.

Awww, porge, you are a real doll  Smiley . Thanks sweetie, you're not too shabby yourself, you know!

Hey Glamis.   I never keep anything, although I sometimes want to  Undecided . I am more apt to keep pieces that I've bought or that were given to me as gifts, miniature-wise. One of these days, I'll get my mom to build me another dollhouse or roombox and it'll be centered around food. Then maybe I can actually put my own pieces in there! I made this yesterday because someone requested it. It's eggs benedict:

These are recent pieces, except for the hot dogs, all centering on picnic/BBQ stuff! That's warm potato salad, so no mayo ;-)
