Hello my Lovlies! I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be launching a brand new line of products this December! Yay!
The line is going to be miniature food, of which some can be worn (think pendants, earrings, keychains, charm bracelets, that sort of thing), others to be displayed however you like, and eventually some small enough to accommodate a 1/12 scale miniature dollhouse! The line is called “Tastes Like Clay”, or “TLC” for short (catchy, huh ;p) and will be handcrafted by yours truly.
Some things that will make this line quite different from my other work is that…
1: I have never done anything remotely close to this before, so those interested can have a chance to see my work develop over the years, right from the beginning! This will most likely lead me into making a tutorial here and there (something else I have never done – should prove to be interesting ;p). Though to be honest, until I feel that I have something to personally contribute, I am just going to start by curating pre-existing tutorials and adding in my impressions/findings in an afterword.
2: As this line cannot be considered original works of art and once I work out some kinks and settle into my groove (ie: settle on techniques, clay combinations and whatnot that give me the effect/look I’m satisfied with for different food types), the pieces will not take me very long to create and therefore they will be a much lower price point than say my other current works. Also, for some things I will (also for the first time) be using molds for some parts; such as the bottom of cupcakes, waffles, etc.). I will never use molds of any sort for any of my original work, but I just really wanted to start creating something that’s just pure fun and could be purchased for $10 or less.
Alright, so without further adieu, here are a couple of photos of the baguette style deli sandwiches that I made! On a side note these are actual the only two food items that I have ever created! Yeah, I know it makes the launch seem a little premature, but I’m confident that I can have a nice little variety/quantity of things in time for my Christmas sale (and the last before my company relaunch in the spring!) at the Water Street Farmer’s Market, in my hometown of Miramichi, New Brunswick, on December 1st (plug,plug)!:
Hope everyone enjoys them as much as I did making them!
NOTE: The one on the left is a BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato) and was the first to be created. The second tasty creation (the one in the right), is a lettuce, turkey, tomato, baguette sandwich with an asinine amount of mayo. Yeah, gotta work on the mayo ;p
Alrighty, well it’s past my bedtime now, so off I toddle! Much love and sweet dreams when you get there! Don’t forget to let me know what kind of T.L.C creations you’d like to see!
Wishing You Well,
