Clay Miniature Food in 1/12 Scale

A clay miniature fruit tart doesn't seem so complex, no? But when you actually get down to do it, it is time consuming.... 

It's been a while since I last made some fruit tart. Using air dry clay, I revisited and changed my method of making this delish miniature food. I'm really pleased with my research and experiment to perfect a crusty looking tart base. That was my focus in this small project.

While the sun was still strong and nice, I took a shot quickly to document it. It's not the most perfect photo but I was just too excited to capture this. Pardon my mountain of clay items in the background.

I haven't decided where I should feature this in, I've 2 pieces of project (half finished) which I can place this in, but I will take my time to decide where it belongs to. But I'm pleased that inch by inch, I'm moving along, even if it is ever so slowly, to make some progress on my half finished projects.

This fruit tart still isn't completed yet.

Here are some mint leaves that I left aside to dry.

I took some better photos after this was taken, on a proper cake shelf, so maybe I'll show them the next time round :)

Or maybe I will wait till the mint leaves are attached to the tart, with a logo.
