This is something I made late last night, as my right eye got more and more irritated. I think I got some chalk dust in it, because I woke up this morning to a big red lump in the lower rim of my eye. Eeew!! Well, I did want to wear an eye patch for Halloween ;-).

Uuu... looks disgusting and so nice at the same time!!!ReplyDelete
LOL!! Thank you Synnove! I enjoy making something...then "destroying" it and making it kind of ugly. I'm fascinated with imperfection (which is weird, since I think nearly all miniaturists are perfectionistic ;-)).ReplyDelete
ack for your eye, not for your work.ReplyDelete
ok. ack for grossness. which is perfect! :D
Moldicious!!!! LOVE it!!!ReplyDelete
Bugs & hisses
Cindy, miniature making is a battlefield! Between your gashed hand, my clubbed left thumb, and now partially blind right eye, we are falling apart!!ReplyDelete
Glad you like the grossness :-D!!
Patty, I LOVED seeing those pics of your pad!! You are the QUEEN of Halloween!!ReplyDelete
This bread is just awesome! Can't wait to make my own bread pretty soon! Hopefully I'll be able to fit in some miniature food making in this weekend, along with all the other stuff I pack in on weekend! Thanks again for all the help.ReplyDelete
oh here's my email: email@example.com
Thank you Sara!! It could have been alot better, but I was a bit bleary eyed. I bet yours turns out really well, can't wait to see it!ReplyDelete
Something Cindy mentioned to me about Japanese air dry clay jogged my memory. A long time ago, I bought a pack of Crayola Model Magic air dry clay because I read that it's pretty good for bread (it's supposed to give that real porous look on the inside, without having to add anything or pick at it). I've never used it, because I didn't really relish the thought of mixing acrylic paint into the white Crayola to get the right color...plus, there's no translucent :-/. But what the hell, I'm going to go dig the Crayola out and see what happens! I'll just make a little loaf or something and cut it in half to see what it looks like after it dries :-D!
Ok, I just opened it. Very strange, like a marshmallowy, space age material. Spongy!ReplyDelete
Sara, I thought you might be interested to see something I just stumbled upon. I googled Crayola Model Magic bread and found an old page of archived tips from Small Stuff digest. A few of them are kind of "old-school", but there's some good stuff there too. It was sad seeing Mary Eccher's name because she passed away a couple years ago. She had been making food for soooo long- I have really old issues of Nutshell News, where many of her articles were published. Pannikins was one of the first miniature sites I visited, and I was floored by the vast array of foods she made.ReplyDelete
This is the Small Stuff page:
And this is Mary Eccher's site:
Kiva a mi me encantan todos esos alimentos inusuales que haces.ReplyDelete
Siempre ponen una sonrrisa en mi cara.
¡Teresa, soy así que feliz usted tiene gusto de ellos! ¡Tengo gusto de sus creaciones, también!ReplyDelete
I finally cut that piece of Crayola Model and Magic and the verdict is: FAIL!! It doesn't look anything like bread on the inside...more like a solid piece of foam. It does stay spongy feeling when dry, so if you ever need anything like that for your miniatures, you might like it ;-)!ReplyDelete
