Hello. My name is Melissa Saint, and I am brand new to Crafster!

My entry is the tiniest dollhouse miniature I've ever made.
Inspired by my own upcoming wedding, I sculpted a very tiny
Bride and Groom wedding cake topper out of Fimo Clay.
The groom has a bow tie and shiny dress shoes, and the bride has a bouquet of red roses. You can't see it in my photos, but she has a transparent veil and waist length hair. I cut it out of a paper-thin layer of Translucent fimo with an X-acto knife. I carved rough facial features with the tip of the finest needle I own.
The Penny is for scale.




That's my entry. But this is just for fun--a Lowell Love Cake with coconut frosting on a mint Milk Glass cake set. I really love how it came and just wanted to share it!




thanks for looking Wink

I don't think I've ever enjoyed looking at craftesses as much as I do these minis.
What a perfect job you've done on the little peeps!

thanks! I'm always keeping my eyes open for texturing tools. I find that the flat end of a ball-point pen can make a great mold for small plates!

Wow, what a compliment...thank you, but no,  everything you see is sculpted from fimo clay. If you experiment with different techniques you can really get a lot of different effects. If you'd like to know more, just ask  Wink

That looks really good and tasty. That would be awesome if someone made small oreo cookies and milk.
