Dollhouse Miniature Soft Drink Cup Mold

The dollhouse miniature soft drink cup mold is back in stock again! So is the dollhouse miniature soft drink cap and straw mold. Both were sold out shortly after their release, and finally I have re-ordered them.

Although it is named soft drink mold, you can certainly also make iced coffee, iced teas with it.

As for the caps, there are basically 2 types of cap you can make. One is the dome shape cap as you see in my picture. The other is the flat cap.

Why packages from Asia to Canada is taking a long time to be delivered

I’ve had many of my Canadian customers asking about why their packages are being delayed for weeks. This issue has been ongoing since 2016. All packages are inspected by Canada Customs individually. Therefore, unless you opted for expedited shipping, your package will be added into the huge backlog of packages just waiting for clearance. Canada Post can’t deliver them until they are cleared by the customs.

I saw this video and it pretty much sums up the whole situation.

Tips on using UV resin to make miniature containers

Today, I want to spend a little time to give a few tips on using UV resin to make dollhouse miniature containers.

First, a little while ago, someone asked me why the UV resin would turn cloudy. I personally have not encountered this issue. I asked what brand of UV resin she had used. The brand that she uses is different from the one I use and sell in my shop here. So I can only suspect the cloudiness issue that she faced is due to the brand of UV resin that she used. It’s hard to deduce since I did not see the entire process. So there could be other factors as well.

A little while ago, I also realized that if you used the hard UV resin to make miniature mason jars , you need to cut and sand it RIGHT AWAY after it is cured. It becomes so hard to work with if you leave it for a few days.

I took a photo to show you what I’m talking about.

Most of us, when working with resins and molds would end up with “A” once it is cured.

“A” is a state where you have edges spilling over the mold, so when it’s cured, it looks like that. I find it hard to start sanding from “A” state. So I prefer cutting it down considerably before sanding.

“B” is after I’ve snipped off most of the edges with scissors, but before I use my sanding tool.

So my recommendation is to snip off the edges immediately after it is cured. It is way much easier to cut during this stage.

Hope you found this useful!

On another news, I’m clearing out some molds and hence I’m offering a Clearance section in my Etsy shop. Please take a look and thank you for your support!

More new molds in my shop!

Hi everyone! March is here! I’ve more new molds that are listed in my shop that I’m excited to share with you.

First up, the dollhouse miniature gummy bear mold! You can make 1:12 scale gummy bears with this as well as 1:6 scale. There are 3 sizes in all you can make, which is so useful!

Next, there is also a dollhouse miniature chocolate seashell mold. This is probably the smallest seashell mold one can find. Definitely suitable for 1:12 scale.

And then, there is also a dollhouse miniature feather or leaf mold. What’s interesting about this mold is that the imprints are very fine and detailed, and does look like a leaf vein, somewhat. I can make leaves with it as well. The quality of the imprints are good. So one doesn’t have to only make feathers with it.

I have more molds coming in my store. Stay tuned!

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.

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!
