I really don’t know what got into me. I must have been inspired by something. Because today I made some sweets…lots and lots of sweets….
Blueberry and strawberry desserts….
And a flaky, buttery cookie with sprinkles…..(I had to try out my bright sprinkles)
And finally, cupcakes in 1:6 scale….
I did manage to get one healthy choice in…a tiny lonely pear! But I must say I was pleased with how it turned out…and darn if that simple little pear isn’t one of the cutest things I have turned out!
The pear was quite therapeutic to make. Especially after the more complex pieces I made today.
The only tools needed, save one ball tool and a needle to act as a skewer , was my fingers. Some simple squishing and moulding got the shape to where I wanted it. Then, it was just about layering colours.
This would be a great beginner project with polymer or air dry clays. By adding a pretty leaf, it would make a nice necklace or brooch. There is something so simply beautiful about pears. I guess that is why they are painted so often.
