First Custom Order!


Well today is a milestone! I have done my first custom order. It was lots and lots of lollipops, although not in 12th scale as I usually do. It was a challenge knowing I couldn't just make things up as I go along (as I usually do), and that I actually had some criteria to follow, but I very much enjoyed it. I might do another if someone suggested it...


Bring it on!

Fruit and Veg Bonanza!


I have now sold this item! Whoopee!

I've been slowly teaching myself how to do fruit and veg, and my fruit and veg shop now up on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29155671) is the fruits of my labour (sigh, I'm a sucker for a pun)!

It turned out ok in the end I think! The tomatoes took ages but are my best effort at tomatoes yet, so I was pleased. I get a weird feeling of accomplishment after I've individually rolled out all those grapes too!

Let me know what you think, and ideas for improvement. I really need to invest in some matt varnish too. Yet another thing on my list of stuff to buy. Argh!
