My very first miniature house!

Today I want to share with you images of my very first miniature house.
I modeled it about 10 years ago when I started using clay, is definitely not to scale, and many things I would change now, I would model them in different ways, but I am very fond of it, because it was the first and from there came  my great passion for polymer clay!
It is composed entirely of objects modeled by hand by me or recycled objects found here and there, like small pieces of fabrics, parts of little chains come from broken jewelry, flowers from favors, pieces of glass mosaics, wire, pieces of golden ribbons from Christmas, cartboard, plastic sheet…
Even the wooden structure that accomodate the house is recycled. It is an old drawer I found in the attic of my maternal grandmother

Here is the front of the house, I added flowers pot under painted windows, a balcony and a door with the number “16”. This number is a tribute to my grandmother's house which is located precisely at 16.

This is the interior of the house:

Let’s see rooms in details.

A bed with a white crocheted blanket, a window where you can see a bird on a branch, a cute armchair, a screen, a painted wardrobe and paintings and candlesticks on walls.

Bathroom: a comfortable bathroom with everything that can serve!

Sitting room: with a comfortable pink sofa, a lovely fireplace and a roching chair, many books and paintings on walls.

 An old style kitchen:

On the roof there is a garden and an attic:

This house has been a hobby for months, until I decided that I would not have added anything more, and was great fun building it and here comes my love for miniatures!

Seals and Penguins Cake Toppers!

Today I would love to show you the cake toppers I modelled thinking about winter weddings, but are good for all seasons if you fall in love with them!! :)

First of all this seals cake topper!
This adorable couple of seals bride and groom are on their island of love, that is the cake topper base!

It is a snow base decorated with white roses and shaped to accomplish the two figurines, its diameter is 4,7” (12cm). Under the base is made of plastic that can stay in contact with food.

Seal bride is wearing a white skirt, a tiara with a tulle fixed with white roses, a bow with a crystal and also crystal earrings!

Seal groom has a tie and a black bowler hat.
Sizes: seals are about 2,2” tall and 3,5” from head to tail.

The protagonists of the second cake  topper are two cute penguins!
The snow base (4,7”-12cm) is full of glitter and has white flowers, every one with a crystal inside!
Figurines are not fixed to the base so you can choose to position them the way you like more.

Penguin groom has a black bow, is already elegant because penguins always wear a tuxedo!
Penguin bride has a tulle decorated with flowers and crystals and a precious bouquet!

Sizes: penguins are about 2,5” (6,5cm) tall and 2”(5,5cm) large.

A personalized banner with names and date complete both cake toppers. 

It was great fun to give life to these two cute couples!

Custom yorkshire portrait...Kitty!

Kitty is a miss, a little haughty, crafty, unpredictable!
She is madly in love with her owner, but very selective with other people, one day licks your fingers and the next day tries to bite you.
Kitty is a princess with pink dresses with ribbons and decorated with Swarovski, a small wardrobe expensive and sophisticated. She travels a lot in a motorhome with her owners and has seen many countries, often in a pouch made ​​for her.
I tried to make her character on the canvas, as reported by the owner, with her sweet little muzzle but with her teeth always ready!

I used the white background as requested by the customer to highlight only the dog, but you can choose any colors and settings for the background.
The customer has remained enthusiastic and made ​​me one thousand compliments, many thanks to the customer!

I painted the portrait on canvas with acrylics, canvas is 12” x 16”, customer also decided for a wooden frame, gold and spotted, the final size of the portrait is 14.5” x 18.5”(37x47cm)
