Dollhouse Miniature Vanilla Flower and Bean Pod

I really love vanilla. I think I have expressed that before. I love vanilla ice cream, scents etc. What prompted me to make 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature vanilla flower and bean pods was while I was doing some research on macaron recipes, I found that in some of the recipes, it calls for vanilla extract or vanilla sugar. So that triggered me to make a mini version.


I'm building a miniature scene, which will be added to my list of clay workshop offerings. But because of the level of "complexity", this will definitely not be suitable for beginners, so it will only be available for intermediate students. I have tweaked certain courses to include prerequisite requirements as well.

For this particular piece, there will be some woodwork involved, but air dry clay sculpting techniques will also take on the center stage. I'm excited with how it is coming along, although I'm taking my time to finalize some of the items that will be featured there. It's hard to decide what will finally be put on that table! But the key highlight will be on macarons :)

Here is a sneak peek!
