Commission update: Various miniatures 1:6 and 1:12 scale

Hi Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Time for another commission update with new miniatures that I have made in 1:12 scale. Our favourite client from America has ordered her usual mix of 1:6 and 1:12 scale items from us.

The 1:6 scale items include various doughnuts, frozen yogurt, fast food, our best-selling Gummy Bears, deco-roll cakes, and purins (Japanese pudding).
Glazed doughnuts and 2 frozen yogurts
Selection of Littlest Fast Food including a set of chicken nuggets, condiments, burger and 2 sodas (without lid and cover)
Our best-selling Gummy Bears which are squishy and crystal coloured
Pastel and pink stripe deco-roll cakes
Strawberry and caramel purin with lids
Some items were ordered in 1:12 scale and you can see how tiny they are compared to the tip of my finger!

1:12 scale Pain au chocolat (2018 design)
1:12 scale cocktail sausages
1:12 scale hash browns
1:12 scale Graham crackers

That was her order from us and we are so pleased that she loves them all. We value loyal customers and will always try our best to keep them happy. 
I just finished yet another big commission so I can finally work on another YouTube tutorial this week. Commissions are now closed until I get back from my holiday in June but shoot me an order request for a free quote. In the next few weeks I am working on content for Sculpey (I'm one of their designers) and launching the new items for April. I will be away for the whole month of May so the next new arrivals will be a big one!

Bye!

New arrivals for March: 1:3 scale Littlest Fast Food (commissioned)

Greetings Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a 1:3 scale commission update. A Smart Doll owner in America wanted the Littlest Fast Food miniature made for the doll so we scaled up the range to twice the original size. Since this is the first time that we made the Fast Food in 1:3 scale, it is also our new products for this month.
Commissioned 1:3 scale food for a Smart Doll
The 1:3 scale version is made almost identical to the original miniature version. We used polymer clay for the food so it is more durable and printed the packaging and boxes on a thicker paper.
Each food item comes loose in the boxes for more play value. The burger boxes are sold separately so you can always order just the boxes.
The hamburgers somehow look so much more edible in this scale, probably since it is double the size so you can actually see the detail of the glossy wet ketchup.
1:3 scale Littlest Fast Food burgers
Just like in the miniature version, you can order the food with bites taken off it. The client ordered the hamburger with a first bite. Check out the details of the bread and meat texture since it is so much clearer in this scale.
Burger with a first bite
1:3 scale hamburger with cheese, ketchup, beef patty, lettuce and mustard
Chicken burger in 1:3 scale. A special cutter was 3D printed to cut out the shape of the bun
Process of eating a burger!
1:3 scale Apple Pies with packaging
Apple Pie with a first bite. The apple filling with apple sauce looks so yummy!
The 1:3 scale milkshakes come in big plastic cups so your dolls will have more to quench their thirst! The lid has been vacuum formed and hand-made to look like the real thing.
1:3 scale milkshakes in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavours
Removable lid
The fries and curly fries do not come fixed/glued to the box so your dolls can eat a piece at a time. We also vacuum formed a little plastic condiment tray so you can have them dipped in ketchup.

For those of you wondering about the size of 1:3 scale, here is a comparison between the different burger sizes. Please note that not all of our miniatures are available in other scales (we mainly focus on 1:6 scale) so do check the description on each item for the availability. For example the hamburger is not available in 1:12 scale but we can do a Cheese Burger in 1:12 since it doesn't have sesame seeds on the bun. 
Burger size comparison
That is all the new items for March. All of the other new miniatures will be launched in April but it will be a good one consisting the updated 2018 sculpts for cupcakes and ice cream cones. There will also be new 1:12 scale cupcakes, new tableware, chocolates, groceries and so much more. In May I will be taking another 1 month vacation in Asia where I will learn how to make miniature Malaysian food and most probably spend most of my weeks chilling by a swimming pool. Me and my husband take a big holiday to Asia once a year and hopefully next year we will be going to Japan again for a month. Littlest Sweet Shop may be closed in May but Sculpey will be publishing my exclusive tutorials and blogs when we are on holiday. More information on being Sculpey's Blogger of the Month very soon. 

Bye!

Commission update: Sweets and Candy for a 1:6 scale Sweet Shop!

Holla Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Here is a commission that I made for a Littlest Sweet Shopper in America. She ordered enough sweets and candy for her Barbies to open their very own sweet shop and some hearty baos. Her shop theme was shabby-chic so some items were made in bespoke colours just for the client. Our best-selling sweets were also made in custom pinks and purple colours.
Collection of sweets and candy made for a client
Custom coloured Gummy Bears
Custom colour meringue (meringue from mold)
Cupcakes
Chocolate wafer biscuit rolls
Pole candy to fit 1/2 bottle
Wrapped sweets and some in custom colours
Lollipops with stand
Lollipop stand. Cotton candy stand
All enough to fit 1/2 jar. Pastel Easter mini eggs, Piped meringues, chocolate bonbons, marshmallow flumps
Iced gem cookies with additional custom colours: chocolate, purple and light pink
Large Bao
Bao with pork filling
I would also like to show you how we pack our miniatures. They are sealed in individual compartments in a food-safe plastic bag. This keeps the miniatures safe for shipping and it is easier to see the contents clearly. Littlest Sweet Shop collectors can also leave the miniatures in the packaging if they wish to.

That's all for today. Make sure to check-out our new tutorial on the Youtube channel and I am still making some new items to launch in March so please come back and visit us regularly.

Bye!
