Breakfast Tray by SmallCreationsByMel Breakfast Tray by SmallCreationsByMel
Hi all! It's been a while =]. Here's an attempt at a breakfast tray.

There was a lot of experimenting in this piece as I haven't made it before. I really like how the sausage came out, at first I thought it'd look the worst since it didn't look like sausage at all while I was making it...*use your imagination* haha...but after applying chalk pastel and glaze, it looked a lot better. Next, I used a different method to make the scrambled eggs, also, since it looked kind of plain with just yellow, I added some herbs to it. I love making pancakes but I hate applying the "syrup". It is always a mess, covers up all my pancake details, the color is sometimes off, and it never stays on the pancakes the way I want rawr...The yogurt came out surprisingly better than I thought it would, it did take me a few tries to get the blueberries the right size though XD. Finally...the coffee...bah...I believe I failed in making the coffee..I looked up pictures of coffee and I can't seem to get the texture/color right...I personally don't actually drink coffee hehe.

Welp, there's my long description :). Until next time! Do leave feedback and suggestions below! I love reading your comments :heart:

---------------
size: 1:12
materials: polymer clay, resin, plywood, glue, glaze, I bought the plate, bowl, cup and fork (and spoon).

I love this. You did an amazing job. The napkin is a tad bit small though.
Adding a slice of toast cut into triangles would have been cute. (that may have overcrouded the tray though)


What did you use for the maple syrup? I personally would suggest somthing along the lines of deco sauce. Maybe dilute it a little.
For the coffe I guess you could have used coloured resin. But I am not sure if that would work.

All in all, I love it. It truly looks like a breakfast tray. Do you plan to make more breakfast trays?
What do you think?

Boy howdy, that's a good looking breakfast. I greatly admire your art. I feel proud of myself when I get a few colors on some 15mm soldiers; your work is so convincing.

Mmm, yogurt. I think the eggs look like scrambled tofu eggs. Sausages look fantastic, I'm sure I'd have been blushing if I made those. :blush:

I don't drink coffee either, so I'll just pretend it's grape juice...with chocolate syrup. :D

Wow, this looks amazing! I'm not a clay connoisseur and so can't give you proper critique, except perhaps that the coffee looks kind of pasty instead of liquid, but as a whole it looks very realistic and polished. And wow, the sausages look just like the real thing, and they're the last thing I'd have thought would look good in a clay reproduction! Great work, please keep it up!

Great work! Everything looks so refined and the details are just wow :) did you make the tray as well or was it a purchase?

If i did have to critique anything, it'd just be the blueberries. They seem a little too blue? (man, that sounds pretty dumb now that I've written it... -_-) I suppose it probably would look more realistic if it was a bit darker. But everything else is so good. Without your hand as reference, I woulda thought it was real.
