Show and Tell ~ 1:12 Dollhouse Scale Basket of Assorted Breads

I have this white rattan basket in my collection for a while. Sometimes, I have a wild imagination running when I pick up a raw item; I visualize if they can be transformed into something totally different from their usual state. I saw that potential in the white rattan basket. :) I love the basket, but I just did not like its original colour...the original colour was too pale and dead, and didn't bring out the colours of the 1:12 miniature scale breads I wanted to display it in.

So Sunday morning, here I am, transforming this white rattan basket. Gave it some colour and added some lace to it and there you go! It looks presentable now!

You wouldn't believe I took these photographs today, on a rainy cloudy Sunday, would you? These photos were really taken on a rainy cloudy day, but I'm amazed it looks like they were taken on a sunny day! That's the power of controlling your aperture settings on the camera!

  1. Hi Pei Li,,, Just gorgeous. I love what you have done with the basket. The bread is so real. Now I am hungary.LOL Its amazing what you can do when you learn your camera! Great shots. Sometimes I find cloudy days work better than blaring sunlight.
    Have a great week, and happy creating. hugs,gail

  2. Pei Li, that is absolutely remarkable! How long does it take to make a mini something?

  3. Pei Li this is beautiful just like all your creations, good enough to eat just imagine the smell of warm bread, cool butter and homemade preserve, washed down with a cup of coffee, just off for breakfast!!

    Have a good week

    Hope you are doing well! I just love what you did with the basket. The breads are awesome. I'm lucky enough to own the tags that you and Carrie created using the bread mini's.


  5. Hi Pei Li,

    It is so hard to believe the bread is not real. As always your work is amazing.

  6. Yum, the bread look delicious! Made my stomach growl,lol. The basket is very pretty. The lace is a beautiful finishing touch.

  8. hi,
    simply adorable ! I've just discovered polymer clay and miniatures recently with another girl living in the U.K.
    I'm living in Vietnam right now, and I've had to bring back the clay from France, because I can't find any here in HCMC. If you have an adress in Singapore I'm interested ! it's easier to come there than go back to France.
    thanks, Véronique.

  9. Pei, You are amazing... as always! I'll say it again and again, WOW! hugs, Tedi

  10. Hi Véronique,

    Thank you for visiting me. I don't use polymer clay for my work. But however, I do know a few places you can go get polymer clay here.


    Hope that helps!
