This was a commission for another mexican girl that wanted a flan ring as a sort of birthday present to herself in case someone doesn't know, a flan is a sort of custard that is very popular in Mexico as a dessert, it's made with vanilla beans and it has some burnt sugar syrup in top. It's extremely delicious and it has a fantastic texture
I'M HUNGRY I just made myself hungry thinking of flan...
She wanted the flan in a white plate with a little spoon, both made by me too I think that it's a very cute design, I just hope she doesn't try to eat it. In case anyone is interested I'm now accepting commissions for rings My only complain is that the pastel dust didn't blend very well in the burnt sugar, so you can see some specks of it... they're not very noticeable in person, but they're painfully obvious in macro photography XD that's something to keep in mind next time I make syrup. Oh and also, this photos is really weird the contrast is all off, I had a poor light that day.
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay, no molds premades or anything else was used, it's all 100% handmade by me. The plate was made using the same technique I showed in my plate tutorial: [link] . I used a silver plated adjustable ring glued with E6000
This was a commission for ~FalconFossi and it was really fun and stressing at the same time (you can read her comment about it here [link]) fish is difficult for me and I wanted it to be perfect. She told me that sashimi was her favorite food and wanted me to make a tray with fish and a dragon roll if I could fit it somewhere, but she also left me a lot of creativity freedom to decide what to include and how to organize everything (yay, fun!). Veggies, rice and ginger was okay but no wasabi. She kinda dared me to make the shiny metallic skin of mackerel and I love how it turned out. Salmon and tuna were also in her list of favorites and I thought the colors would work great.
She sent me a lot of references for the plate but I decided to go with this one: [link] I've never made a tray before so I had to figure out a way to make the shape. I took tips from this tutorial by ~lava-tomato when I made the salmon but I think I can still improve. The salmon and mackerel were made using my own technique. The roll was constructed using a similar technique than what's shown on this tutorial by *chat-noir except that with a smaller scale, and the avocado is a simple skinner blend. The cucumber, lemon and raddish/fish cake are canes I made using my own techniques.
She wanted to make a bracelet out of this so she asked me to make holes on the tray, I hope that she'll post photos of the bracelet when it's finished so feel free to check :devfalcon-fossi: out. I was also asked to make everything relatively flat because she was afraid that with her active life-style anything would get caught, so on the second photo you can see that nothing protrudes too much. This took a lot of love, research, time and work, but this is just the type of work I love to do
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay without the use of molds, bought pieces or pre-mades. Acrylic paints were used for the black border on the tray, silver mica for the skin of the mackerel and glaze to make the plate look porcelanized and the fish and fruit look moist. The plate is 2.5 cm - 1 inch long, so everything is really small but I don't think you can take that from the photo XD
These photos came out a bit different from my usual style, a bit more... vintage? I'm lost when it comes to photography, all I did differently was take them late in the evening so I guess it was something to do with the light. Edit: silly me! I also used a different, darker background. What do you guys think, it's a different style which one do you prefer?
This was a commission for ~Rae-Lynn (here's her feedback), she asked me to do lemon dangling earrings and a lemon pie necklace, I was asked to include a dollop of whipped cream on top of the pie with a slice of lemon. I love how the second photo shows the segments I make on the lemon and the translucency, what I don't love so much is the speck of dust that escaped my inspection that's the worst thing about photographing miniatures, all the stray dust is painfully obvious. It was superficial, not part of the clay so it can be brushed off.
Dangling earrings are so much fun to make the funniest thing is that I don't like wearing them, but I love making them
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no premades or molds were used, everything was made from scratch by me. The whipped cream is polymer clay too. Metal findings were bought from a local craft store.
Thanks to the awesome =maytel for making a custom shape of my kitty logo
I forgot to post these I found the pics the other day and wondered why I never did... a year ago my boyfriend said that I needed a place to display my dollhouse and miniatures, so he built/bought me a lovely sort of bookcase and I made each space a room of my dollhouse (it's a fantastic design, and it saves so much space since it's vertical!). He didn't want my things to get dusty so he also added acrylic doors to it, and this was my contribution to the project, the door handles I glued them to the acrylic doors and they work fantastic and they are so fun to watch XD
I don't remember how I decided what to do for the door handles, I think I just did the stuff I wanted to make at the time lol. So they are a jelly cake roll (my bf's favorite, before I glued it he threatened to eat it if I left it unattended), a chocolate petit four, a jam cookie, a marshmallow, a colorful lollipop and a mint chocolate truffle. My favorite part was the creamy inside of the jelly roll, I love that texture XD TEXTURES I love making textures!
Comments and suggestions are much appreciated these are also available for commission as pendants, charms, earrings, etc.
Se me había olvidado poner estas fotos las encontré el otro día y no me explico por qué jamás lo hice... hace un año mi novio decidió que me hacía falta algo para exhibir mi casa de muñecas y miniaturas, así que compro y construyó una especie de librero y en cada espacio puse una habitación de mi casa de muñecas (es un diseño genial, ahorra mucho espacio por ser vertical). No quería que mis cosas se empolvaran así que le puso puertas de acrílico, y estas manijas fueron mi contribución al project las adherí a las puertas de acrílico y funcionan perfect, y son muy entretenidas de ver XD No recuerdo como decidí que miniaturas hacer, creo que solo hice lo que me dio la gana en el momento. Hice un pastel enrollado con jalea, petit four de chocolate, una galleta de mermelada, un malvavisco, una paleta de colores y trufa de chocolate y menta.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay for the jam and jelly, no molds were used. The cookie shape was cut with a small cutter. Pastel dust was used to achieve the baked effect. The cake texture and color were made using the same technique I explained in this tutorial: [link] the method I use to making whipped cream is also explained there.
I love to make sushi bracelets It's something I wish I had more chances to do! A few months ago I received two commissions for sushi bracelets almost at the same time, so I took photos of them together. One of them is for my original array of sushi (tamago, onigiri, salmon) and the second one went to a girl that doesn't like tamago, so she asked me to change it to roe instead (the size ended up being perfect for flying fish roe), and I have to say I think that's a new favorite, the color is so bright and beautiful I also made a new makizushi cane this time, with even more rice so it looks more realistic
They are available in my etsy: [link] or you can ask me about them. They're made to order to fit each person's wrist. You can pick any combination of six sushi pieces and I'll make something like this, if you want a different sushi ask me first so that I can tell you if I can make it most probably I can, I love a challenge XD these are really fun to wear, after all this years I still wear mine and it makes me smile like a little girl
Technical stuff: All hand-made by me, everything is made with polymer clay except for the roe, no molds or pre-mades were used, it's 100% handmade. The bracelet is made with a sturdy clear elastic and secured with a clamp bead. Of course I learned how to make the maki from *chat-noir's immortal sushi cane tutorial and I took ideas for the fish roe from *Auffallend's Mini Realistic Roe Tutorial except that I had to adapt it to what I had available =3
Comments and suggestions are always much appreciated
This was an idea I suddenly had and I couldn't rest until it was done ._. my idea was to make a chocolate truffle bracelet, with every truffle being different and with many techniques. It is less realistic than my usual work, but it makes up for it in being colorful and fun! It's fun to try different styles I also thought this rainbow crystal bead spacers were perfect for it, they make it look so shiny and brought everything together!
The first photo shows how it looks glazed, I decided to glaze it because I thought it would look better. I'm not so sure anymore, I prefer things un-glazed (like in the two bottom photos) but I know a lot of people prefer the glazed look. Oh well
Even tho it was fun to make I had no intention in keeping it, so it's up for sale in my Storenvy. I am liking Storenvy so far, so I've been putting a lot more of my work in there than I ever put on Etsy. Please pay it a visit in case you find something interesting! I'm listing things almost daily. One of the things I love is that you don't need to make an account to buy things, you can log in with your Facebook account making it so much more convenient!
I think the price is quite cheap, considering that they're 12 chocolates you're only paying $3.33 for each one x.x oh well if it doesn't sell I'm taking it apart and selling the chocolates individually. I don't ever plan to do this again so this will be completely OOAK, if I ever do something similar I plan to do the chocolates completely different. The bracelet is 21 cm/8.3 in in diameter.
Technical stuff: All laboriously made out of polymer clay by me, no molds or premades are ever used! Some of the shapes were cut using tiny cutters. Glazed for a shiny finish.
UPDATE: When I uploaded this there was a glitch or something and some people couldn't see the photo. It has been fixed, I hope everyone can see it now.
My mom makes bracelets as a hobby, she also likes my roses so she asked me to make her some rose beads to use in her bracelets. This is what she came up with, I think they're really beautiful and I'm so glad I could do a sort of collaboration with her it was a bit difficult to figure out how to make the roses beads while still keeping them thin and delicate, but the design worked and held up pretty well, they've lasted her for months =3 I love her work!
So I'm going to add rose beads to my commissions list in case anyone wants to use them for beading and in case anyone is wondering I'm the one modeling the yellow roses bracelet. Feedback and suggestions are always much appreciated
El hobby de mi mamá es hacer pulseras, le gustan mis rosas de polymer clay así que me pidió hacerle unas cuantas para usar en sus pulseras. Esto es lo que ella hizo, me gustaron mucho y me dio mucho gusto poder hacer un tipo de colaboración con ella. Fue un poco difícil pensar como hacer las cuentas de rosas y todavía mantenerlas delicadas y delgadas, pero el diseño funcionó bien y ha resistido meses de uso =3 Me encantó su trabajo! Así que ahora también ofrezco cuentas de rosas en caso de que alguien quiera hacer pulseras con ellas
Technical stuff: The roses were made by me with polymer clay, each one is unique and made petal by petal, not two of them are the same and each one is made with great attention to detail. No molds or premades were used. The pearls, crystals and beads were bought by my mother, she assembled the bracelets with her own design.
This was part of the commission I did for ~Kizzarina, her lovely cat Ayame was named after iris flowers (Ayame=iris in Japanese) because of her stunning blue eyes, so she asked me to make a couple of iris flowers as stud earrings they were a bit more difficult to do than I imagined, but I'm really pleased with the way they turned out.
The shape was kinda complicated and getting the colors to blend perfectly was a challenge XD but as always, the most difficult part was finding a balance between delicate thin petals and sturdiness. When I make flowers it's always a bit tricky to find out just how thin I can make the petals before they become brittle, but if I make them too thick they look clumsy. Oh dilemma. Actually when I finished the flowers I noticed that the petals were still a tiny bit flexible and I was super scared they would break some day, so I decided to add the leaves to give the petals some more structure. It ended up working great for the design as well, and I hope they will last her a good time.
Technical stuff: 100% polymer clay and handmade, no premades molds or bought parts were used. No acrylic paints were used to achieve the colors. Metal findings were bought from a local craft store. Each flower is about 1.5 cm (left size reference) or just a bit over half an inch (right size reference).
Cakes... so many cakes a couple of months ago I got a lot of orders for cakes, and I took some photos. Rainbow cakes are now my most popular cake, you can get your own here with any decoration that you want. At about the same time I also got a commission for a blue fondant cake with a white rose, an old design that I really love because it looks so delicate... I decided to take some update photos of how I do them now, just lightly more realistic because now I include a delicious golden browning of the cake. You can get your own here.
The first cake was special, it was made for my brother-in-law who asked me to add "gay bacon strips" to the cake, which apparently is a term used by the people that like Epic Meal Time (I'm not one of those people). I made them curly like real bacon. They are just rainbow belts, the fake sugar was a gift from my dear friend =moofestgirl I happened to have a rainbow cellphone strap that matched it pretty good!
Pasteles, tantos pasteles hace algunos meses me llegaron muchas órdenes para pasteles y les tomé fotos. Los pasteles arcoiris ahora son mi pastel más popular, pueden encontrarlos en mi etsy o comprarlos directamente conmigo Más o menos al mismo tiempo también me llegó un pedido de un pastel azul con rosa blanca, un diseño viejo pero siempre un favorito mio... le tomé fotos para mostrar como los hago ahora, más realistas con apariencia horneada.
El primer pastel es especial pues fue un regalo para mi cuñado, quien me lo pidió con esas cosas dulces que según parecen tocino gay. Al momento tenía el aditamento para celular en color arcoiris y le quedó bien
These cakes are available in my Storenvy [link] and Etsy [link] or you can just buy them directly from me
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Specially to ^maytel, at least one of this slices is coming your way!
I love these cakes! Last time I made red velvet cake I received feedback telling me that the color is actually darker... so I listened Each slice has pure white frosting, it looks so fluffy each slice includes a tiny red heart, the hearts have a slight color marbling, it's an adorable effect. I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and I think I got the color of red velvet cake perfectly this time I actually decided to make a full cake this time instead of making slice per slice, it saves a bit of time but it requires more dedication to texture them all at once without going insane. But they look so adorable together, so it was worth it
I actually didn't try red velvet cake until a a week ago, we were hanging out with some friends when we passed by a bakery and they had red velvet cupcakes... I asked Oka to buy me one since I had never tried red velvet. I didn't think the flavor was anything special, it was kind of chocolatey, kind of sweet, and kind of meh. I don't know if that's what red velvet cakes are supposed to taste like, but I'm not impressed so far! Red velvet is not a popular flavor here in Mexico and that was actually the first bakery that I've seen selling them, so maybe they were doing them wrong. I will try to find another bakery and give it another chance.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me! No molds or pre-mades were used, 100% handmade one by one with love. The techniques and materials I used were explained in my polymer clay cake tutorial.
