Miniaturists are always on the lookout for innovative ways to use ordinary products. Christmas time is especially exciting because we scour the stores for scale tree ornaments; YES ornaments!
Made out of sturdy but soft enough to cut plastic, the ornament was perfect 1/12th scale with amazing details. I carefully removed the bear and his toys from the high chair with my X-Acto knife. I then painted over “Baby’s First Christmas” with 2 coats of white acrylic paint. I wasn’t worried about any rough spots I caused since the new miniature baby’s bowl and snacks would cover the imperfections.
The result is a perfect high chair for my beautiful doll house baby. The baby is hand sculpted from polymer clay and measures about 2 ½”. The high chair is about 4” tall.
I purchased the baby from Miniature Artist Alicia Singleton. You can find her on EBAY at http://myworld.ebay.com/alliebeandolls/ or on ETSY at http://www.etsy.com/shop/alliebeandolls. I absolutely love the detail in her work!
So keep a lookout for those unusual miniatures and thanks for looking!
