You know, it was only after I started teaching miniature classes recently that I realized that it meant something to me on a deeper level. Knowing that at the end of the day, my student really love what they have accomplished and learnt something that they never knew they could make with their own hands is indescribable.
Another big satisfaction for me was being able to develop a new way to help my student create the miniatures. I'm learning something myself here every time I teach.
Right now, I'm grateful for all the opportunities!
It seems all I do lately are just flowers, which is really quite true. It's still very much on my mind and lately my work revolves around flowers.
Just the other day, I was experimenting the colours of the stamen of the gerbera daisies. I get excited when I achieve another realistic variety of gerbera daisies. All the stamen are hand painted by me, so it does take time.
I made a hand bouquet yesterday. This morning, I took pictures of them in my hands.
I made some more 1:12 scale macarons over the weekend. I like to think that it's because I love the muted pastel pink colours and so it comes naturally to me. I would make a bunch in different shades, and arrange them till I find the nicest combination. Mixing colour is really the key here. The good thing is, it can be done and with practice, it will get easier and easier each time because you're more confident in mixing the colour. You develop an eye for colours and also know what are the shades that goes well together. Knead quickly and here you go!
