Handmade, 1:12 scale miniature food and oddities from IGMA Fellow, Kiva Atkinson
Hey Kiva, What's your something freaky?I've been absent from the blog world trying to make miniatures but boy I must had it to you and all miniaturists out there! Its tough! I been feeling like just can't get my stuff to look right! I'm gonna keep plugging away tho! Love the bread!
I adore your bread....it looks so real...dare I say, it has a real 'French' look about it!!Linda
Thank you Sara and Linda!! Linda, for you, the afficionado on all fine things French, I am very pleased ;-)!!Sara, I made a butt-ugly basket of head bread. As in, heads of bread. Head-shaped bread. Not the googly-eyed food I sometimes make, but ugly heads of bread. I made it last night while I was half delerious from the flu, and it kinda shows :-/. But Sara, you have only just begun!! What with the hardcore nurse training and your attention diverted to your studies, it is not unusual to feel frustrated, trust me! That goes with the territory ;-). Just keep at it. Do it every spare chance you get. And remember, you can ask me anything!
Kiva!! :) at first i was like, noooo way, bread? Kiva? something's not right there haha. and then i read the part about head-shaped bread, and that sounds much more like you! :P But your bread is fantastic still! awesomely realistic. :)
Un pán delicioso!
I have to pop in and say that I would really really love to see the ugly head bread! I love your work so much!
LOL!!!! Jocelyn, you crack me up :-D!!! But wait tuntil you see the sheer hideosity of that head bread. I almost don't want to post it :-(.Gracias, Teresa!!Kim, you are so sweet! I will post it, just so you can see how ugly it is. I googled bread and found a pic of some head bread, so that is what kind of inspired me. Here's the pic I found:http://inventorspot.com/articles/body_bread_13546I don't think I could bring myself to butter up a chunk of that and pop it into my mouth, as much as I love bread!
