Bringing home da’ bacon!

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.

I create miniature food sculpts (mainly dollhouse scale), out of my home, in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. I live surrounded by the beauty of local orchards and rolling farmlands. When my kids leave for school, I set to work, often in my pajamas, with my clingy miniature schnauzer, Lenny, at my feet. I create only what interests or inspires me. My focus is on quality not quantity. While I often have only a few pieces available, they are very detailed as I continue to build my skill.
