2017-06-17 03:40   Challenging to make 1/12 scale breads 2

Y (Kuma's owner)

It's fun to attempt something new. My latest challenge is making 1/12 scale breads. Actually, I was going to make 1/6 scale breads but I learnt that the worldwide standard size of dollhouse is 1/12, so I decided to make 1/12 scale breads with polymer clay. I searched the Internet to find the common sizes of breads and divided them by 12. I could guess how small they would be, but I was still surprised to see the sizes that I calculated.


My first 1/12 scale bread was a French bread (baguette). I don't know what it's called in French, a bread that is long and has a couple of cuts on the surface. Before I made the first one, I thought that making the shape would be the most important thing; however, I noticed that the colour is also very important to make it look real.
The picture below shows the bread of 1/12 scale. They haven't been painted enough, so I'm going to paint them a bit darker brown to show the burns. I bought two books that were written by Tomo Tanaka, who is a miniature creator. He says that it's important to paint a lighter colour little by little, so I'm doing as he says. If you are interested in miniatures, I strongly recommend that you see his creations. His creations are amazing! I hope I can make realistic breads, as Tomo Tanaka does.My challenge continues.
