Promised to keep posted about the outcome of the miniature creation workshop : our team did not get the team winner but I was one of the two individual winners.
During the final judgement, our mentor brought along two of her friends who are also experts in the miniature creations. Their work were at professional level, we were very impressed how real and how refined that these 1/12 scale products can be done so nicely! Honestly, we beginners will have a long way to go!
You can navigate one of their site to see how good the experts can really deliver! It is awesome!
Back to the real world, I have decided to make some more craft with my left over clay I bought from these miniature workshops.
I made a brooch (to match my new dress, with the color selections of pink, yellow and peach).
Finally, I made a slightly bigger floral presentation of about 5" tall. As I ran out of Grace Clay, I could only use some left over Staedtler Modelling Clay, so the flowers were really much bigger. What I desired to present was inspired by the clay work, that we could actually create more things that could be of practical use, not only 1/12 size type by collectors eg. the brooch you can design to match your outfit / theme and the floral arrangement of Ikebana Style that could be kept in small version and will last and the flowers will not fade or died.
I had always wanted to make some real flowers arrangement of Ikebana Style, I think I would be able to make more of these that can be kept (as they are small & can last) and more varieties. Soon I can expand my collections.
This is fun and inspiring!

It is such an honour! I had been selected as one of the 25 participants (Singapore Islandwide!) for the workshop organized by The Creative Academy (National Library Board) to attend the Miniature Creation Workshop mentored by Snowfern Clover (Ms Cindy Teh).
During lesson 2, we were mainly using Grace Clay for preparation of strawberries and were being taught the relevant techniques to make different kind of fruits like kiwi, blueberries, bananas, etc.
