~*Happy St. Patty's day!*~
I've been busy all morning making all sorts of goodies & finally cured/fired/baked the mini dark chocolate bunny peeking through the grass cupcake! See how *small* this little cutie is?!
The height of the piece from cupcake base to tippity top of the ears that slightly flop is 3/4ths of an inch.
I'll be making more this weekend!

I see the general shape of the clay while working on them but not the details.
When I start to work in the sunlight and have more practice, the details will be impressive and look more realistic. For now, it's all about the impression of features and details and practice of manipulating the clay at this scale.
My tools- a razor blade, a pin, polymer clay, my reading glasses, my hands and 28 or 30 gauge wire.
:o) I hope that there are people out here reading my blog that find this fun or fascinating.
If you like what I make, please leave feedback! If you have any tools or tips to recommend, I'd be interested to hear!

There is no anatomically correct figure here, just a very tiny sculpture made of polymer clay that will be fixed and then sanded, painted and given some type of wardrobe.
I can imagine it wearing a cap or hat of some sort.
Wigging it is not something I am thinking about yet. It's too small to get that detailed without some sort of magnifier.
Well, I am using drug store glasses and don't really see all the fine details with them.
The magnifier lamps make me dizzy so I don't use them.
Anyway- I am on a hunt for a #15 and #16 tatting crochet hook.
I already have all of the other numbers so if you have the 15 and 16 and would like to barter or sell the needles to me, message me!
I would buy them from the internet but the shipping fees are higher than the cost of 2 needles combined!

Polymer clay wheels/tires.
I am creating a mold for the wheel frame and gears, that is the dark flat patterned disk.
