clay food

We don’t want summer to be over! We want to eat ice cream during every month of the year and not feel weird about it. 

In honor of our love for ice cream (we literally eat it every day!), we made these mini ice cream sundaes. You can pick one up in our Etsy store. 

Hugs!

For my first assignment in class, we were to buy a shoe and customise it to our inspiration. I decided to bade mine on bakery/sweets/desserts. Because in the past I use to do decoden, I decided to incorporate it into my shoe as I thought it went well with inspiration. The fruits are made from Polymer clay and painted with acrylics, glazed with sparkly nail polish as I left my glaze at home. The Swiss roll heel is made from Air drying clay and painted with acrylics. Both the filling and piped cream is white silicone.

I added more piping but don’t have a nice enough photo so this is the near finished design! Pretty please how it turned out!

Today the Department of Teeny-tiny Treasures is marveling at this exquisitely detailed miniature food handmade by French artist Stephanie Kilgast, aka PetitPlat. Kilgast uses polymer clay to sculpt 1:12 scale dollhouse miniatures of so many different kinds of fruit, vegetables, bread, and sweets that we wish we could shrink ourselves and play with them inside actual dollhouses.

For 2015 Kilgast decided to challenge herself to sculpt a one miniature fruit, vegetable, or root each day. You can follow her progress here on Tumblr at dailyminiveggie​.

The Department of Incredibly Wee Wonders loves junk food just as much as the rest of us and they’re always excited to discover more artists making jewelry in the shape of their favorite foods. Today they’re salivating of these miniature wearable treats created by San Diego-based artist Jen Tuttle, who has been hand-making miniatures for over 30 years.

Tuttle uses polymer clay to make wonderfully detailed food charms for necklaces, bracelets and earrings. We love her new necklace that look like an ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwich, but our favorite piece has got to be the charm bracelet loaded with 21 different, but equally delectable pieces of junk food. It’s one of the most decadent pieces of jewelry we’ve ever seen.

Visit Tuttle’s miniholiday Etsy shop to check out many more of of her tantalizing food jewelry as well as lots of dollhouse props.
