Show and Tell Monday

This is one of the piece of craft I made in Hong Kong. It is a Dessert Table filled with pastries goodies. One of the things I loved about this is how I learnt to use hinges. For someone like me who is almost clueless to carpentry work, this is somewhat a miracle. It wasn't easy since the table was small, but I'm glad it turned out well. I like how the table top could be opened to reveal more pastries. Neat!

I get to choose from a wide range of colours to paint this...and in the end, I chose a sweet pink (my favourite colour).

Lots of different types of pastries and tarts. The most time consuming one is the pink colour cake inside the interior of the table. The "veins" of the cake has to be drawn individually. Clay has to be put on top, layer by layer. But I'm happy with the effect, especially after painting.

  8. Pei Lei--your work is just so amazing! That table is magnificent and the pink cake, what can I say. You are going to be someone we're going to be saying, "I knew her when she was just starting up!" You have taken this up to the level of art.
