Dollhouse Miniature in 1:12 Scale Handcrafted from Polymer Clay

A plate full of oysters not from the Rocky Mountains and let's just call the fish a fish. ;)

I wasn't striving for 110% anatomic accuracy so rather than incur the wrath of an icthyologist, I'll keep things generic.

Materials used:

-FIMO and Sculpey brands of polymer clay
-Colored chalk pastels
-J.W.etc. Clear Varnish
-Lemon slice by Angie Scarr (there's a fabulous lemon cane tutorial by PetitPlat here: [link])
-Both ceramic plates were purchased from ebay
-The 'ice' was bought from a local miniatures shop
-The green bits you see in the oyster bed are broken off of reindeer moss

I have seen this photo before on a site were they sell miniatures.  I could be mistaking but I know that photo all to well a unless you work for that site (I can't remember it's name but I'll search and see if I can find it again) I think that's stealing. If I am wrong I am very sorry and it is amazing. Yet I know this pic so well. Oh well maybe it just looks alike.
