Miniature Dog - Shih Tzu

Hello again everyone! This time I am posting my super challenging order, a miniature Shih Tzu dog!! Honestly this is my first time making a realistic dog miniature. Usually I only make cute rounded shape dogs for fun and in fact never before I received any order making miniature dogs.

This lovely Shih Tzu dog was the dearest dog to my customer's mom, but it has passed away not long ago. My customer wish to make a miniature replica of it as a memory for her mom, so this is an important project.

This time I use Premo polymer clay to make this project. I failed the first one! the dog looks so messed up and thin. I felt bad if I have to present this to my customer. I didn't want to disappoint her mom so I remake another one. This is the picture of my failed work. >.< (horrible isn't it?)

I am quite happy that the remake version looks much much better...actually far better I think. Here are more pictures of the dog from different angle.

I use matte glaze for the whole body except the eyes, nose and tongue I use glossy glaze.

What made me happiest was not when I received the payment, but when I saw the look in her eyes (my customer's mom). She was so happy and started telling me every single details bout her dearest dog, about how shiny the fur and that it was blind on the right eye. It was touching and amazing how she remember everything so detail about this beautiful creature. Hope you rest in peace there...

Let's move forward to a happier topic. This customer who ordered this miniature dog is the same customer who ordered cake topper which I posted earlier. Besides the miniature dog, she has also requested another pair of fluffy bear as keychain. Thank you so much for liking my work.

Thank you for reading ^^

Baby Blast!!! - Baby 3D frames

I've got two orders of baby frame this month. Yeay!!! This is not the first time I make baby frame but still enjoy making it until now. I love the cute tiny toys and love seeing the cute pictures of new born babies!! They are just so pure and angelic.

The baby girl frame will be sent to Singapore. It is a repeat order from my loyal customer who has ordered baby boy frame few months ago which I posted in my previous post. Thanks again for trusting me to create such an important memory to welcome a new born princess to your family.

The other baby boy frame is an order from my ex piano student who has now already became a piano teacher, too. So proud of you dear. This frame is a gift for her best friend. Such a wonderful friendship.

Here are the short videos of the making process (not tutorial) as bonuses for my customers.

Have a nice day!

Anna, Olaf and two Fluffy Bears is everyone? I couldn't post anything lately because I was terribly sick last week. I was on the bed most of the time, something wasn't right with my stomach. I had a terrible run and pain all over the stomach and I had fever for two days. It was a truly exhausting week!! I couldn't sleep well at night because of the pain. I am slowly recovering now and back to my routine activities. Well, still a bit of pain sometimes, but I am feeling better compared to last week.

Here I will share my latest commissioned work which has passed the turn around time. Dear..They were supposed to be delivered to my customer on Wednesday, but I couldn't wake up and do anything last week. Thanks to my dear customer who has been so understanding and willing to give me extra few days to do it instead of cancelling the order. I finished them all yesterday night and lucky that there is a one-day-express delivery service available in town, so I posted them all today and hopefully they arrive safely on time tomorrow. They will be part of  my customer's daughter's photo session on Sunday.

These fluffy bears were made based on pictures of actual dolls belonged to the customers which was sent to me to make the miniature. They are not my original idea. 

They are so adorable!!

 The customers had also requested Princess Anna figurine and Olaf. 

My favourite of all is Olaf!! The funny snowman who sings very well

Everything was made using Japanese resin air dry clay and glazed with matte sealer Padico.

Thank you for reading ^_^ and Happy Weekend!
