Fake Whipped Milk Cream

I’m excited to bring you a new fake whipped milk cream in my shop.

Coincidentally, I was making a strawberry ispahan dessert magnet, and it was a perfect opportunity to try out the fake whipped milk cream.

You can see the texture of the milk cream here. It’s really easy to use, and it comes with a nozzle. After you are done, you unscrew the nozzle, wash it and let it dry. Remember to close the tube with the original cap.

One tube is 50ml. If you are only working on strictly dollhouse miniature scale items, this tube should last you for a good while.

More new molds will be arriving soon!

Update on international shipping Feb 2017

I just wanted to update on the international shipping situation. International Shipping continues to be slow, even though Christmas is long over! If you’re from the USA and Canada, and is ordering from my website, I ask for your patience and understanding.

USA

It used to take 2-4 weeks for a package to arrive in USA. But these days, please be prepared to wait anywhere between 6-9 weeks. I have a package that was mailed on 29 Dec 2016. My customer only received it on the 6-7 February 2017, even though tracking says it reached USA on the 14 Jan 2017. So, please be prepared to wait 6 weeks or more.

Canada

All packages coming in from Asia Pacific are affected. The CBSA or customs is experiencing some delays which unfortunately Canada Post cannot intervene with. Click here to see the official service alert from Canada Post.

I have a package that was mailed out on 23 Nov 2016, and my customer only received it on 2 Feb 2017.

I continue to mail out packages to USA and Canada as soon as I can, but I do ask for your patience…you may have to wait for a little while longer. If you are unable to wait, there is always an option to upgrade to FedEx Shipping. Please contact me for shipping rates.

Thank you!

Food Miniatures Craft Book – Make Miniature Gateau

I’m pleased to bring you another new Food Miniatures Craft Book review! This book “Making Miniature Gateau” is certainly one of the best ones for 2016! If you’re a fan of making miniature cakes, french desserts and everything sweets, you must not miss out on this one.

miniature cake book

This is a high quality book. Everything that was made in there, was of exceptional high quality, from the texture to the colors. Though in Japanese, the photo step by step instructions were very clear, so everything was easily understood.

Also, the book shows how to make miniature cakes in a slightly larger scale than 1:12 dollhouse scale, but the same techniques apply and you can scale it down appropriately. So I think there is still valuable skills to be learnt from this book.

I’m going to try to make a couple of it myself, just to showcase how easy it was to follow those instructions. But of course, I think I’ll always change the design a little to suit my own style.

Clay Paste For Miniature Lace Mold

Introducing the newest product in my shop! I’m excited to introduce a clay paste for especially for miniature lace mold. Simply call it the Lace Maker.

Lace Maker for Miniature Lace Mold

Why the Lace Maker?

I have often received emails from customer asking what is the best way to create lace and doilies from miniature silicone molds easily. Though air dry clay was clearly the best choice back then, I continued testing products to find a way for it to work effortlessly. I have tested quite a few different products, and finally found this that works beautifully.

Compared to other clay paste, this has a sturdier feel (not hard, but strong), which I feel is clearly a winner. If you want a flexible YET sturdy lace, look no further. Other clay paste often turn out flimsy after dried. I also found that it is so easy to peel it off after it is dried thoroughly. See my video link below!

This is a step by step tutorial, and I will show how you can create dollhouse miniature lace beautifully with this product easily!

STEP 1:

Prepare your miniature lace mold. Make sure it is clean, and free of dust. If you find it dusty, you can wash it with water and scrub the ridges gently with your fingertips. I have a clean mold below as an example, ready for use.

STEP 2:

You will also need an artist palette knife for this task. Here, I have all the 3 items laid out ready. Completed laces are just for show.

Clay Paste For Miniature Lace Mold1

STEP 3:

Open the bottle lid and squeeze just a little of the clay paste onto the artist palette knife. Just a little bit will do! You don’t need a lot. You can always re-apply another layer if you realize there is not enough to cover the mold. Using a little at a time minimizes wastage.

STEP 4:

Spread out the clay paste onto the silicone lace mold evenly. Ensure that all the ridges are carefully filled with the clay paste. Try to keep all the edges clean. Applying a bit of pressure while you spread it out can help to keep your edges clean.

STEP 5:

Let the clay paste dry for a few minutes. IF you want to expedite the drying process, you can use a hair dryer to speed things up!

STEP 6:

To remove the lace from the miniature silicone mold, start by peeling the edges off slowly. Peel slowly. IF it is completely dried, you will be able to peel it off easily and there is no wet clay paste remaining on the mold.

How to Use Miniature Lace Mold2

IF you need more laces, please repeat Step 1.

Additional TIPS:

-Clay Paste dries off as a white opaque color. It is slightly flexible, but has a rather sturdy feel.

-IF you need to make MULTIPLE colored lace, find an air tight container, squeeze some of the clay paste into the container. Add some acrylic color into it. Stir well. Repeat Step 1.

-Clay Paste does NOT only work on all the silicone lace molds, but it will also work on shallow, thin molds such as miniature doily mold , miniature alphabet mold , miniature snowflake mold.  Endless possibilities!!

How to Use Miniature Lace Mold1

Short Video 1:

I made a short video to show you how easy it is to peel off the lace from the silicone mold. I meant it when I say it’s very strong yet flexible when dried!

I hope you enjoy this free tutorial! 🙂
