Le Picnic c'est Chic by thinkpastel Le Picnic c'est Chic by thinkpastel
Finally - my entry for #semi-sweeties Petit Picnic contest.
I knew I had to partecipate to this contest the moment I saw it - I absolutely love picnics! :giggle:

Description -
To me, there are three really important things for a successful picnic: great food, great company and great landscape!
My idea of a perfect picnic? By the lake, during spring - when the weater is nice and breezy - along with a couple of girlfriends.

As for the food.. well, everyone has a favourite, right?
So here we have three different dishes for three different girls: there's the one who's perpetually on diet - a salad and some fruit for her; there's the sweet tooth - pb&j sandwiches and cookies for her; and, last but not least, the lucky one who can eat whatever she wants - an hamburger and french fries for her!


Technical babbling -
Everything shown is handmade in a 1:6 scale.
All the food was made with polymer clay and partially coloured with chalks and acrylic paints.
The basket is made with cord and ribbon; the magazines with standard 80gr paper (yes - I've actually designed the covers, ads and inner pages using pictures of my Barbie dolls. I'm slightly obsessed :D ).

Full view for details - sorry for the huge size of the picture :blush:

Beautiful! may I ask how you made the lettuce in your salad look so realistic? This is amazing. You are now one of my favorite miniature artists :) *bows* and *watches*

Aw thank you :blush: :tighthug:
I did the lettuce by cutting lots of little, uneven pieces of green-to-white clay (you can make a 'gradient' effect using the skinner blend tecnique), then give them weird shapes using a needle, a toothpick and a ball embossing tool. Hope this made sense! It's easier to do than to explain :D
