Miniature courses

Z and her friends came for the miniature basic lesson last week. I haven't seen her for quite a long time but she and her friends still remember most of the technique that  I taught her last time.

Below are their master piece.

(PS: the fruits are not stick to each other so look a bit messy.)

Below is done by M , a food blogger in Sin. By the time she finishes all her miniature lessons (basic and intermediate), I am sure she can make her favourite food without any problems .

Dear all,
I have done a little bit changes in  my miniature basic course, those who are interested please email me for the "menu".

My mini dim sum world.

These mini handmade clay foods : dim sum, the size of it, is as small as a five cent coin, the first time I made so many dishes at one time.The miniature steamer is really very small, so the food inside must also small.

These miniature clay food cannot be eaten! It is good to look at..

                 These are my handmade miniature clay dim sum, not for eating! Just for display.

                                     These miniature dim sum sizes are just as small as a 20cent coin.

                Which miniature dim sum do you like most?  I like all of them!

             The size of the mini streamer is about the size of a five cent coin. very very small!

                      I handmade this miniature dim sum container /steamer.

See, how small they are!

How to make Kai kou Xiao (开口笑)

Do you know there is a dish named kai kou xiao ((开口笑) ? My friend said it made you happy after eating it, that's why these small little ball name 开口笑 ! I love it!

Here are some of the steps to make 开口笑 :

1. Roll a small light brown ball 

2. apply some clear glue on the surface of the ball

3. Sprinkle white sand (  if you can find light brown sand) onto the ball
4. Cut a cross at the top of the ball (show below)

I made a super mini 开口笑 that's why I used art sand. You can make a bigger one. Try it yourself , it is very simple.

Mini Chicken Rice Bendo

Tomorrow (5th April)  is Qing Ming Festival. Remember to bring some offerings to your ancestors.

I love this mini bento very much because it is very cute. I bought the empty bendo box which is made of plastic( I forgot where I bought it and it is so small that I forgot where I kept and I just found it recently!)
 I handmade the mini chicken rice and placed them inside the box, it looks really good and cute.
PS: you can also make your own bendo box with hard paper but you really need a lot of patience as the box is very small.
