Stunning Miniature Landscape Paintings by Dina Brodsky
Dina Brodsky’s (previously featured here) miniature paintings combine her two passions: cycling and miniature painting. Her landscape paintings depict the view of cycling sceneries of beautiful nature scenes showcasing different types of seasons and times of day.
The paintings follow the traditional composition of realism. Nature’s vast landscape is expressed through a series of atmospheric colors. Brodsky beautifully captures the morning and evening haze of a cold winter day, as well as the blinding sunrise on a tiny canvas. She compares their adorable and miniaturize size next to her fine paintbrush. The results are a romantic image meticulously and skillfully captures in an impossibly small canvas.You can find her stunning pieces in her Etsy shop.
Redditor SuperDrew124 satisfied the curiosity of people who were dying to know how Noskova achieves such a perfectly smooth, shiny, and sometimes marbled effects on her cakes by sharing their own recipe for a mirror glaze:
Ingredients: 20 g Gelatin Powder, 120 g Water, 300 g Glucose, 300 g Sugar, 150 g Water, 200 g Sweetened Cond Milk, 300 g Chocolate (White, Milk, Dark or a combination), Food Coloring
Steps: 1) Bloom the gelatin in the water; 2) Boil the glucose, sugar & water; 3) Remove from heat and add the gelatin; 4) Add the cond milk; 5) Pour over chocolate and buerre mix to remove air bubbles; Use at 35C/95F.
The marbling effect is achieved by pouring different color glazes together over the cake.
