Pink Miniature Vespa

Hello everyone! This week, I finished a large project. It was a dream of mine to do a miniature vespa makeover for a long time and boy am I glad I fulfilled this dream. It has been truly fun! I say that because I love hand painting a lot! This piece has a lot of hand painting to do and I had the chance to try out new stuff in the process, which makes it truly enjoyable.

I don't think any of you would be surprised by my choice of colour here - pink! What can I say? It's just my colour to try out for this first makeover.

I love the glossy look. Almost like brand new.

Although my miniature vespa isn't a 1:12 scale, it didn't stop me from giving this a makeover. Truth of the matter is, there are some 1:12 scale miniature scooters out there, but there are almost none that are of a old looking model. Almost all of them were too modern looking and didn't fit into my vision. Think Roman Holiday. So I gave up and looked at other scales.

The flowers presented here were made a little while ago, and back then I had no room to fit them into any piece - they were looking for a suitable home. It has finally found its home!

My mom saw this and she loves it too. I wonder if it was the colour that she fell in love with, or was it the overall cuteness of this miniature piece.

I imagine a flower shop owner going around delivering flowers to customers on this miniature bike. That was my vision when I made this.

Also I had to do a little scale comparison when I put this next to another 1:12 scale miniature pot of flowers I finished earlier. It is not too bad. Some of the 1:12 scale miniatures would fit and compliment well with this piece.

I also had to scale down my crate just a little, so that it doesn't look way too big on the bike.

I cannot stop looking at this pink scooter.

I think what this has done is opened up another new hobby of some sort for me. Does hand painting models count?

Have a great weekend everyone!
