Scenes with fruit

I'm suffering from low vitamin levels after the long winter, perhaps that's the reason I'm thinking about fruits all the time. And they are in so many colors and shapes I just couldn't help making them in miniature. 




Tip for peeling the apples: peel them while they are warm after baking. You can slice long stripes of skin this way without breaking them. After cooling the polymer clay gets rigid. Of course you need also a new blade for fine slicing, but please try not to cut your fingertips off with it!

I think that, next time nature will copy your fruits. :)

Beautiful work. It looks REAL!

I feel so lucky I have a whole batch of fresh cut up fruit. Your post just reminded me and now instead of sitting here with my mouth watering I can go get a bowl. :-)

As always your work is wonderful! Thank you for the hint about cutting the peel while the "fruit" is still warm.
Lovely that you can get together with your mini friends. I know how inspiring it is to spend time together.

Ich bewundere deine Arbeit! Es ist einfach unglaublich, wie real das alles aussieht! So als ob du das Obst und Gemüse geschrumpft hättest!
