1:12 Scale Macaron and Gerbera Daisy Display

One of the pieces that I completed before the end of last year was a 1:12 scale macaron and gerbera daisies display. My dear friend, Marie wanted something colourful and bright. I was really excited to work on this one, because it was different in terms of colour scheme. First, the wooden platter was actually a deep dark rose wood colour. It was actually a difficult colour to work with, so I suggested to paint it white. Everything looks so different after a fresh coat of paint! :D My mind started running with ideas once I see the base colour that I'll be working with.

With that, I began to visualize colour schemes, and decided the macarons will be an aqua/bluish colour. I work bit and bit and am very happy when the pinks and bright fuchsia all complement beautifully! I also added white pearls to further accentuate the piece.

Definitely one of my proudest work in 2010!

I still have 1 more wooden platter which Marie gave to me, so I'll make one as a keepsake piece for myself...(Thanks Marie!!)

Hope you all like it too!
