Mints and Citrus Candies // 1:12 Scale Miniature

FINALLY! I am done with my canes! Well... for now, at least. I truly enjoyed this previous week of canes. I had never devoted much time to canes- which I now think of as an art form all to itself! I'm am TOTALLY scatterbrained today! So this post if a bit all-over-the-place!


I made two groups of canes so far! Some mint ones and some citrus ones. You can find them listed in my Etsy shop, HERE.


I got a new sketchbook! I have started writing down the clay mixes I use so that I don't forget them! I have also been keeping all of my sketches for minis in this little book!


 Here is a little shot of me slicing the canes! As you can see, I had to do a good bit of stretches to keep from curling into a pretzel! Haha!



Here are the end results!



I have quite a few more ideas for canes, but for now I am taking a break from them to work on other things for the holidays. So lastly, here is a teeny tiny bowl of mints for your enjoyment! I will try to be back soon with more goodies!


Thanks for stopping by!! Talk to you soon!

  4. I agree with the other guest comments, Blake! Your little candies do capture the essence of the season. My mouth began to water as I could actually imagine the taste of each flavor. Yes, I can see that you put hours and hours of TLC into your project. You deserve a break! Have a wonderful holiday yourself. *
