Tempting treats to break a tooth on (or my unusually productive day)

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.

  1. GAAAH! I know I’ve said this so often, but your work is AMAZING! Do you have a shop? If not, you should, because I’ll bet people would really like your work! Ooh, the pear looks like a fun project! I just got some Artist’s Pastels for my birthday, and I’m still trying them out. This looks like a good starter project!

    • Allison, I recommend you try doing the pear. I had visions of caramelized baked pears after I made it…that may be a future piece that I do! I do have a shop on Etsy called Blossom Friends Design. Thanks for your comments and have fun cracking open that new box of pastels!

  2. I thought they were real, and was salivating madly. I am so impressed that you made these out of Polymer Clay? i think. I love Polmer Clay, and play with it, but I could never make food or miniatures. Excellent, beautiful work.
