Making Grapes

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

I just finished two baskets of grapes for my Etsy shop and upcoming miniature shows. I need some other items with grapes. I am thinking of wooden buckets, crates, and wine barrels. BTW, each grape is rolled by hand from polymer clay, baked, and the glued on a special stem.


Adding More Food to My Table

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I photographed some more food items that I recently made for my table at the online miniature show/sale. The show opens Aug 20. Tomorrow, I plan to actually set up a table so I can see all I have and can easily find the items that sell. that called organizing? Right now, everything is in their boxes located on my mantle. Which is where I have my photography station set up. It seems like everywhere I look I see mini food!

Here are two more items:

Carved turkey dinner Dressing

More Macro Photos and Minis Going to Etsy

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

I worked several hours today on macro photographing some of my miniature food and then placing them on Etsy.

Most of what I worked on was side dishes for meals. After all, our dollhouse people need good meals as much as we do. The presence of food on the table makes a dining room come alive.  I love creating miniature food for dollhouses and roomboxes. I like to see how realistic I can make each item. I have made miniature food for a while now and it must look realistic. I posted a real Christmas Candy Cheesecake on my Facebook page and a lot of people thought it was a miniature cake. I must be doing something right. Here are some of the side dishes and one of my complete dinners

I placed in my Etsy shop.

Still Working on Macro Photography

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

I think I may have hit on the right idea to make the work on my miniature macro photography work. After some great ideas from my son Jonathan, I opened Lightroom (newest update) and tethered my camera to my laptop.  I can edit the photo right after I shoot the item. With using a macro lens, I can even slide my backdrop to move my item to center it. After taking the pictures this weekend, I did find out I need to use a lint roller as little white specks popped up.

Here are a few of the pictures I took and added to my Etsy Shop.
