lil strawberry by Sleetwealth lil strawberry by Sleetwealth
a miniature 1/2" strawberry I just made today in about 10 minutes.
its my second attempt. Is it good?

I want to make some of these wild berries for a sculpted figures hat. A sort of cornacopia still life that includes wild berries, flowers, fruit , and hunted game etc.

hoping to include miniature foods into my doll/figures larger than dollhourse scale.

It's a beautiful piece, it really does look like tiny strawberry, the detail is gorgeous and I like what you used for the little green tuft at the top.

Thank you. somehow being so small makes it seem so precious! The green tuft for the srawberry crown is tissue paper painted green. Worked like a charm!

Thanks yeah it worked out perfect! Mohair I think would be hard to control on such small scale.

Sometimes the best method ends up being the first thing you think. Other stuff it takes a bit of hunting and trial & error.

It's very cute. And that idea with the "sculpted figures hat" sounds great.
I think, you should definitely make that :)
