OK...so I'm looking at the pictures in the "How to" on that site for these little oranges. I see a blue ball....then an orange ball...then some painting stuff. Then she cuts the orange ball...and where the heck did the blue ball go???!!! What was that? The orange ball is hollow now with white fuzzy stuff. Yikes!! I'm...confused. But the oranges are spectacular! So are the berries.ReplyDelete
Jeez, Kiva - we need a holiday in Japan visiting some of these Miniaturists!ReplyDelete
They look so real - I am off to take a look at the site tho' it'll probably leave me feeling 'sooo' inadequate!
Scary realistic!!!! They are damn good those Japan miniature people..... but from what I´v heard; they have got this special clay witch apparently is amazing for food and flowers!!!ReplyDelete
meh heh heh *evil grin*ReplyDelete
see, SEE WHY I'M DRIVING MYSELF NUTSO????
you should read Yoyo's comics too, so funny, i don't read japanese either but i kinda get the gist of it > < oh btw, i use googletranslate to read the site....
the tutorial is amazing. that blue ball is sillicon and it was removed after cutting open the 'orange'. yep use googletranslate or some other translator site to change it to english! i don't speak Japanese at all too, but the translated English is broken, but still decipherable! :)ReplyDelete
Use this link:ReplyDelete
Sumaiya! I found the translation button on my toolbar and this is part of what I got, lol:ReplyDelete
Create a skin.
Rounds the size of silicon want.
Silicon stab the needle, substitute the color of thin clay-colored skin.
Using clay is Grace.
Jerumediumu creates less濃Ime stained the color of skin color.
Make it easier to draw a point, and adjust the water.
Surface of the clay dries, we will draw Putsuputsuwo.
Clay-colored (Grace) has something like Mosamosa Tsukemasu inward.
Needle, toothpick, tweezers and then Ppoku it.
increible realismo ,felicidades
I think you can kind of get the gist of what she's saying, though.ReplyDelete
Jocelyn, thank you for explaining that blue ball! I get it! Very interesting...
Mags, time for a trip- I totally agree!
Synnove, they use air dry clay and often color it with watercolors and acrylics (I think!).
Ok Cindy, we are waiting for you to try the mandarain oranges next ;-)
They are great, aren't they juani :-D! Incredibly realisimo!ReplyDelete
