I have to say, I’m pretty excited about how this ‘bacon’ turned out!!
I made bacon in 1:3 and 1:12 scale.
As you can see, the bacon is kind of on the red side before it’s painted. It doesn’t look that hot. It is the paint that gives it realism. I used watered down acrylic paint and applied it in layers, sealing each one with matte glaze. This way you get a build of variations of colour, which is also important for realism.
To go from a large scale to a much smaller one, you simply (but carefully) stretch it longer.
Another thing you can do for a more realistic texture is mix fine craft sand in with the paint and glaze.
“Wakey, Wackey, Eggs n’ Bakey!” Here it is, a complete 1:12 scale breakfast.
