Spring miniatures

These are my latest Spring miniatures for the dollhouse. The little mirror is my favourite as I just love the colour combination of the flowers and the leaves. There is a real fairy like feel to the mirror. I have listed these items on ebay for auction and you can view them here:
Good luck with the auctions if you decide to bid :)

Miniature white rabbit teapots

Well the rain is back so there's not much to do other than to stay indoors so I decided to work on some more polymer clay miniature items. I made some cute little white rabbit teapots. The teapots are all in miniature and range in size from 3/4 of an inch (1.9cm) tall to 1 & 1/4 inches (3.1cm) tall. I'm enjoying sculpting rabbits so much at the moment and will be making some larger sized ones to put on some Easter treat boxes in the next couple of months.

Alice in Wonderland Queens guards

I love the film Alice in Wonderland (the old cartoon version) and love all the wonderful characters there are in that film. I get to watch this film a lot as my 4 year old daughter loves it too. The Queen of Hearts guards pictured above are my interpretation from the film. I made these guards for a customer 2 years ago and decided to make them again but with some alterations. I love how serious they look and their helmets look kind of ancient Roman style. The guards each measure just 1 & 1/2 inches tall so would be great for a 1:48 scale project. The materials used for this project were polymer clay, mount board, florist wire and acrylic paint for the fine detailing. Feel free to leave a comment on what you think of them. I will be putting them on ebay tonight and will pop back here with a link to the page once they have been listed.

Ok they're listed and the link is here:

New Easter miniatures for 2014

The first day of 2014 is here. I was hoping to be able to go for a lovely long stroll in the cold winter sunshine and walk off some of those over indulgences of the last couple of weeks. However there is no lovely winter sunshine today but dark grey skies, gale force winds and horizontal heavy rain outside which kind of puts me off venturing outside. Hopefully the weather will pick up for the weekend and I'll get my stroll then.

Today I have decided to work on my miniatures instead while listening to Birdsong! By Birdsong I mean the channel Birdsong that you get on digital radio stations. If you close your eyes when listening to this you can totally imagine you are back in the middle of summer in a meadow somewhere. This channel completely chills me out and if I'm feeling a little stressed it really helps. Does anyone else like this channel or even know about it, I can thoroughly recommend it.

Anyway back to the miniatures. In the photo above you will see my latest Easter items I have made over the last couple of days. I have listed them in my Etsy shop today so take a peek if you're interested. I relly love making little white bunny rabbits (as you can probably tell) and have added them to teapots to give them a cutesy look. I'm going to be making many more over the coming weeks and will have white rabbit wreaths, more teapots, shelving..etc. I think Easter is my favourite time to sculpt for as I feel so inspired by Spring (I'm sure I've said in the past that Halloween was my favourite time, or was it Christmas? Anyway now it's Spring). Anyway the weather is still miserable outside so I'm going to head off back to my desk and create some more miniature wonders. I hope where ever you are you are having better weather than me and are getting out and enjoying the fresh air.
