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 have been added in my shop this month! I’m still not done with listing them all, but here are the ones that are released today.
The sizes are perfect if you want to make dollhouse miniature breads and cookies using the shapes of these molds.
Also, the last mold I have is the accessory mold. There are miniature hats, bow ties, ribbons and the sizes are all suitable for the above molds. They are meant to be used together.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Happy new year everyone! Today’s the first day of the Rooster year, for those who are celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year!

Hop over to my shop now to get this!
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.
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.
Really, I can go on about how much value you get in this book, you learn to make so many different cakes and tarts, for the whole list of things, please refer to the actual listing.
Just an example of how clear instructions were!!
I also have another miniature craft book review coming up! 🙂
