Dollhouse Miniature Flowers - Purple Hyacinth...I never thought I would make them. But just recently, I blogged about the fabulous hyacinths by Polina here. Hyacinths never struck me so deeply until I saw that photo. The photo called out to me. I noticed about the shades of purple, and the light green. Everything was in balance. I knew I had to attempt making it in dollhouse miniature scale.
For every flower that I attempt, I do study the photos carefully. In this instance, though the fantastic photo by Polina was etched on my mind, I also use Google images to do my research. Particularly, I was looking for close up shots, colour varieties and right down to how the petals fold.
It must be a hundred times I've said it before, but there is an unexplainable sense of calmness when I make miniature flowers and the same happens while making this hyacinth flower. Plus I really do think painting transform and brings life into miniatures.
This time round, I really had fun making these dollhouse miniature hyacinth leaves and shaping them to bend like how leaves bend naturally. That's the beauty of air dry clay - that you can bend and flex them even after they are dried.
So here they are, my version of dollhouse miniature hyacinth flowers.
I hope you like them just as much as I do!
And a big Thank You to Polina for giving me this enormous inspiration!
