Trash to Treasure part 3

A rubbish bin and ash tray made from a lid with metallic duct tape. The cigarette is a plastic bristle from a brush.


Scale was made from a disposable razor and some other things she found in her trashy collection. Waste basket made from a toothbrush cover.
These serviette dispensers were made from the top part of disposable lighters, stuffed with paperclay.

Bubbler


Another trash to treasure! This is a mini drinking fountain.

I got the idea to make this from a mini friend Doreen after showing these to her. Thanks Doreen! This is made from two wine stoppers found at Dollar Tree, it doesn't have running water yet. I need ideas on how I can make that. I tried Saran Wrap, but that didn't look right to me. I welcome your input."

Trash To Treasure






Tanya from Atlanta
likes to make miniatures from bits and pieces. In fact, many miniaturists do! Good looking miniatures do not have to be expensive, and I think the above photos demonstrate this well.

These salon chairs were made from erasers, wire, and jenga pieces! The sink was made with the help of a ladybug shell from a cheap shop! But isn't the result spectacular? Do you make anything like this? I hope to share more from Tanya soon.

Hello to everyone at Fluffy Bricks!
I have been working very hard and now have a new and improved website for The Colvin Studio dolls. Better eye-candy, interactive zoom features, and even a doll shop make it worth a visit. To celebrate this accomplishment, I am giving away one of my 1/12th scale characters!

Arcade Games













These 1:18th scale arcade games have been made by Big J.W.
They were made by hand, and each cabinet is made with stiff plywood not balsa wood.
He makes them for his 'Joes'.

Miniatures in PC Tower Case




I feel like I'm cheating with this one. I do not have permission. I found the picture on this site (check it out to see more photos) but he drew a dead end with finding the creator too. It's sort of a meme thing where no one knows who originally started it. But it's so fantastic I can't not show you!

Just goes to show that you can put miniatures wherever and have a nice little talking point.
If anyone knows the actual creator of this scene, please tell me or them, and I'll either credit or delete.

Food From a Singaporean Miniaturist




Carrot Cake!

Tea cake



Cream puffs



Chinese dumplings.

Malay Ketupats ( a mix between sweet satay meat and a rice cake)

This needs an explanation! " Dorayaki is a Japanese dessert of two small pancakes wrapped around a generous filling of sweet redbeans. Some may remember it better as Doraemon's favourite treat! :)"




For the Japanese food lovers, this is a basic favourite dish of Japanese fare. Salmon nigiri is a must for most when dining at sushi bars! :)

This is a set of 6 miniature salmon sushi (nigiri) with a small scoop of wasabi on a simple wooden board.


AiClay is an amazingly talented young woman from Sinagpore. She says she likes making food from non European cultures, but "sometimes I can't run away from the occasional cupcakes or cake!" She also has a blog.

Aiclay requests that you do not use her photos without permission from her. Thanks!
