Unagi don, one of my favorite foods. The rice looks a bit off (more like small marshmallows, yum...) and the chopstick's a bit warped, but the eel and sauce are perfect.

thank you for your feedback!! Hmm I haven't found the best way to make rice yet. How would you go about making perfect rice? :D

You've seen my 'Insanity' pic, right? [link]

It's very tedious, but I just make very thin vines, cut the right size blocks and gently roll each one back/forth in my fingers to point the ends. Just a couple light rolls. The longer I roll them, the longer & thinner the grain.

If you want solid-looking rice (like mine in the pic) you bake them before you put them into the bowl. If you want them soft/squishy-looking like how they look in sushi or balls you very gently smoosh them together and then bake.

I think the latter gives the most realistic look, but also has a greater chance of failure 'cause once you smoosh them, you can't really undo it.

It's good to practice first w/ regular cut vines till you can put a rice dish together with barely any handling. Though looking at your other dishes, I'm sure you've got the practice in. :)

thank you! :D I guess there really is no quicker way (as I can think of yet) to make rice haha. Next time I will most likely roll each piece out separately then XD. Thank you for explaining to me :heart:

Yeah, when I take a break from making miniatures, I sometimes lose my touch haha. The clay doesn't do anything I want it to.

yeah! I get really frustrated. Sometimes I spend like hours on something and it doesn't turn out the way I want so I have to end up trashing it lol
