My Workspace... making Candy Apples

My book - 'The Art of Pixie Dust Miniatures', which will be out later this year, includes some Fairy-tale foods. So, today I have been creating some candy apples to contribute to it. Thought I'd share a sneak peek...

Scroll past the images and you can see my photo inspiration reference from the internet. ;)

I'll finish them soon and photograph. Some of these apples will also be available for purchase at the Pixie Dust Miniatures online Etsy shop.

Don't forget to find the Facebook page for more photos and up-to-date news.

Happy Easter 2014!

You probably caught my last post about monster eggs (here), but in case you didn't, I wanted to give a shop update.

As you may know, I just got back from 2 weeks away in China.

The trip throughout China (starting in Hong Kong, then Guilin, Xi-an, Beijing, Shanghai and back in Hong Kong) was so wonderful and inspiring that there will DEFINITELY be some Chinese miniatures in progress soon...

So - the online Pixie Dust Miniatures Etsy shop is back online and business has been resumed as usual.

Have a lovely weekend and wishing you a Happy Easter from Pixie Dust Miniatures!

Monster Eggs

Have you heard of Gerharda Grogglespot? I daresay not - very few have and even her nearest relations claim no acquaintance.
Grogglespot steals monster eggs. She has a gift for it.

As many of you know, I have just returned from two weeks in China, but upon my return 3 days ago I took some photos of Gerharda selling her wares in a Pixie Dust Miniatures marketplace. Take a look at the photos below and don't forget to buy your very own monster eggs from the online Pixie Dust Miniatures Etsy store here - just in time for Easter!

There are;

Frightspark eggs from Iceland,
Whizzle eggs from Greece,
Hicklyback eggs from North America,
Hairy Yellow Hibbet eggs from Holland,
Schleep eggs from Thailand,
Gruggle-snug eggs from the west coast of Africa.


On a more serious (less silly) note; if you're interested in my miniature scenes then you may like to see more of this at my flimic blog which shows much more about the making of miniatures and the use of miniatures in filmmaking. I will soon be writing a post all about these monster eggs and show different photos, so look out for that at my other blog or on its corresponding Facebook page.

All of these eggs and pretty much everything you see in the photos was made by myself in one inch scale (1:12 scale) using polymer clay and mixed materials. Images copyright Pixie Dust Miniatures 2014. Thank you for giving me credit and a link back to this blog when you share my images.
