Holy Guacamole!

Man, I just love guacamole. I love it to the extent that as a 19 year old student at Royal Holloway, University of London, I'd skip dinner and treat myself to a tub of pre-made Sainsbury's guacamole instead. It was cheaper than buying ingredients to make dinner and I loved it!

Now that I live in Southern California I probably eat avocado daily and guacamole about 4 times a week, on average.

Anyway! Here's a blog post all about guacamole and avocados, to continue my scale miniature Mexican food season....!

There will be a tutorial about making miniature 1:12 scale avocados coming very soon to my online shop, so stay tuned for that. Also, there are photos below of my new avocado jewelry, which is also available at my online shop, and don't forget, I ship all over the world!

Chips and Dip

Continuing the miniature Mexican food theme....!

Here's some tiny salsa and tortilla chips for the weekend. I spent about a day testing different small batches of salsa by playing with different mediums, different translucencies, different amounts of tiny cut up 'tomato' until I got it just about how I wanted it. The chips (crisps) were made by rolling clay out as thin as humanly possible over sandpaper and peeling them off and then adding additional pigment. ;)

Corn, avocados, peppers and Chillies!

As you saw in my last post, I am all about Mexican food at the moment and have been creating it since the beginning of the month (Cinco de Mayo - 5th of May). I have been eating out in my favourite Mexican places in LA and cooking Mexican food at home (which I do every week anyway), and getting all sorts of inspiration for this new range!

Mexican cuisine includes a lot of vegetables and bright colours, so I started by creating vegetables in miniature before I made the dishes. Take a look at some of my photos below which show some 'work in progress' photos as well.

Shop for miniature Mexican foods at my online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop here.

Entire miniature Mexican food range can be seen at my Pinterest gallery here.

Mexican Food Jewelry Range

I've been creating all sorts of Mexican food in 1:12 scale miniature lately, which you might have noticed if you follow me on Instagram (here)!

Alongside that, I've created lots of this miniature food as jewelry! It's super cute, and has that realism that makes it a fun talking point whenever you wear it.

Here's some snaps of the 'making of' process, and links below to the jewelry, which is all available now at my Hummingbird Miniatures online Etsy shop!

Handmade Food Jewelry

Gosh... where have I been?! Good question! I have been away from Hummingbird Miniatures for a while because I have been working on my film, which uses miniature characters and miniature sets, so you should absolutely check out the Facebook page here! I've missed you all so I'll be back here for a bit now. :)

So today is Cinco de Mayo (a huge Mexican holiday) and so I have been busily creating Mexican food in miniature, including some new mini food jewelry featuring very realistic limes. I'm late finishing these items, but check back soon as there will be an array of dollhouse miniature Mexican foods and Mexican mini food jewelry! All handmade by myself and in one inch scale, of course.

Want to learn how to make a miniature lime using polymer clay, yourself?! Stay tuned as I will release a tutorial on this very soon, and you will be able to find it in the tutorial section of my Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop here.

Here's a sneak peek at some Hummingbird Miniatures Mini Food Jewelry. Please click over and check it out, and note that much more will be coming soon...!

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday tomorrow so I decided to make myself a cake! I gave up all sugar and desserts for Lent, so it doesn't matter to me that my birthday cake isn't edible. This miniature cake is made from polymer clay (what else?!) and in once inch (1:12) scale. The candles are extremely tiny, and if you read this previous blog post you'll know that my birthday candles have became far smaller, but I use a new technique which means that they are actually far less fragile and less likely to break than birthday cake candles I have made before.

The cake is a tall one - being 4 layers of vanilla sponge and pale blue icing. It's topped with confetti and of course tiny candles.

Since we're on the topic of candles, if that interests you, you might want to take a look at my realistic pillar candles which I've made for my film company (photos here) and which can of course be bought online here.

Don't miss out on new cakes which are gradually being added to the online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop here!

PS Did you know that you get free delivery if you purchase from my Hummingbird Miniatures online store on the day of your birthday? Just email me a snap of your ID that shows your date of birth and I'll grant you a birthday code for free delivery, no matter where in the world you live. The purchase must be made on your actual birthday. If you've already made a purchase on your birthday and didn't use the code then just email me and I'll send a reimbursement for shipping via PayPal.

Have a great week everyone!
