Clay Puppy Love

Greetings earthlings! Good morning!
I have some crafty photos to share with you! Yay!
This was done just about a week or two ago. It's ordered as a birthday present with 4 of the receiver's favourite dogs.

 I started by making the base, and then started with the dog. I used white clay for this.
 3 dogs made. The pink dot there is the tongue.
 Pretty much completed!
 Now it's time to paint the dogs!
 These are my reference photos.
 Two white poodles. Not much of painting except the face.
 A beagle.
 A husky with ears down.

More pictures of the little dogs.

This little fella is my favourite. I loved how the painting turned out to be.
 Introducing the four dogs :
and these are the cutesy clay version of them!
The completed product. I loved how it turned out. 
Well, that is all! Thanks for dropping by! Tata!

DIY Faux Iphone

 Hey everyone!! Look at what we have! It's an iphone! 
Okay, not really. But it's a FAKE iphone! All handmade with love.  

So, for this year(2012)'s Christmas Production - Ghosting in CHCKL, Frieda and I were in charged of making an iphone and an ipad. I made the iphone (with Frieda's guidance - she's the one who knows how to make everything. I mostly just followed.), and Frieda made the ipad (Sadly I do not have a photo of it. I shall take a photo of it when I see it and re-update this post).
 Many of you are wondering how it was made so real. Here's a little insight on what it's made of.
Frieda and I went shopping and bought a cork board from Daiso. This is to make the body of the iphone.
 We printed a picture of the iphone's front and back.
 I placed the cut out of the printing on the cork board, and a blade was used to cut the sides into a square first, then trim the sides where needed and then the corners.
 The top piece was taken off and the sides were done first. To stick it on, I used Faber Castell Art Gum.
 The top and bottom piece was then stuck on again!
 A silver piece of thin strap is stuck on the sides with cut out buttons where appropriate.
And tadaa!! That is about it. We added a little more touch ups after that, but it's basically just like this. Hope you enjoyed reading this post!

This prop was used in Ghosting, CHCKL.

Tutorial : Bread Sushi

Hello from the beach! This picture is taken by one of my favourite photographers - Adele Ng Photography !
Do check out her page if you want to know more. Anyways, today I'll be teaching you how to make BREAD SUSHI! Yumz!

What you will need :
1) Bread
2) Sushi roller (or you can do without)
3) Ingredients to fill ur bread sushi!

This picture shows what I prepared, but you can fill your bread sushi with anything at all! Even peanut butter or chocolate! Have fun and enjoy!

My ingredients are :
1) Straw mushroom - I fry them with soy sauce myself 
( It turned out super yummy. It was my first time trying this random recipe and it's yummy! )
2) Hard boiled eggs
3) Lettuce
4) Tuna

Place your bread on the sushi roller and add ingredients on it. (If you don't have a roller, roll them by hand) For the chunkier ingredients, be sure not to add them to the whole bread, or your sushi bread would not be able to roll up properly. Instead, it'll have tons of gooey ingredients squashed out in the end. 

If you're using spreads like butter, tuna, chocolate or peanut butter, then go ahead and put a thin layer over the whole bread.

 When you're done, slice them up into about 4 pieces per roll depending on how thick you want your sushi bread to be. This is how it will look like. Yummy eh? I had crabsticks in some of them too!
 My sister was in her room the entire day, so I thought of surprising her with this.
 Yay! Feeling like an awesome sister!

The brother requested for a durian bread sushi :

 Tadaa! I told you you can put anything in there! That's all for today! Hope you enjoyed this post!
