Caning technique

This week have been full of work since I am writing my examination essay now, and I also tryes to make miniatures in the pauses (: ... because I cant resist!

Right now I am working on my caning technique, I am making strawberries, bananas and starfruits! You might think the starfruits would be hardest but I think its the strawberries... they have to be so perfectly symetric to look good! I dont have any pictures of my canes yet so I thought that I could post some older pictures which I forgot to post here.

This red cabbage is also done with caning technique and took ages to make .. so I have alot of red cabbages laying around (: . The leek is also done this whay!

Oranges ^^

Since I have been in a "fruit-mood" lately I made this oranges, and had a lot of fun photografing them on real oranges!


Eftersom att jag varit på inne på frukt mycket på sistonne så prövade jag även att göra apelsiner, här har jag haft kul och fottat dem på riktiga apelsiner!

I haven´t done any miniature scene for the organges yet, I am thinking about making a boal with fruit sallad, do you have any other suggestions ?


Jag har inte gjort någon miniatyr-scen till apelsinerna än, men funderar på att göra en fruktsallad. Har ni några andra idéer?

I also want to welcome all new blog readers!

Jag vill också välkommna alla nya blogg läsare!

Banana and chocolate dome cake!

This weekend I finally got some miniature-time! I had a lot of ideas but one of them I just had to try first! I saw a wonderful miniature banana made by a japanese miniaturist, and since I love challenges I just had to make one myself, even if it would take my hole weekend (;

Here is my banana, as you can see it is very tiny. It takes a lot of patiens to make so small miniatures, but it is so peaceful and fun!


I helgen fick jag äntligen tid över till miniatyrer! Jag hade mängder av idéer, men en av dem var jag bara tvungen att pröva först! Jag såg nämligen en underbar miniatyr-banan gjord av en japansk miniatyrist och eftersom att jag älskar utmaningar var jag tvungen att göra en själv, även om det skulle ta hela helgen (;

Här är en bild på min banan, som ni kan se är den väldigt liten. Det tar mycket tålamod att göra så små miniatyrer men jag tycker det är avkopplande och roligt!

I also made this preparation board where a chocolate-banana dome cake is beeing made. Its made of rich dark chocolate, Lindh excellence in 85 % cacao (: ! Everything is made in polymer clay in 1:12 scale, accept the box which is a printabel from my new subscription, miniaturas.

Jag gjorde även ett bakbord med choklad/banan "dome"-cake. Den är gjord av fyllig mörk choklad, Lindh excellence med 85 % cakao (:! Allt är gjort i polymer-lera i skala 1:12, förutom lådan som är en printable från min nya prenumeration av miniaturas!

I had lots of fun taking pictures of my miniature banana, here is a picture taken with a real banana!


I also want to welcome all new blog-followers, hope you will like my blog!
