Greetings from the local purveyor of bread and cured meats, fellow adventurers!
Those of you who saw my recent Beauty Spotlight Team Post are probably expecting my Guide to Red Lipsticks! Never fear, it shall eventuate today as promised, but I’m a rogue, and we’re tricksy. In the spirit of tricksiness (also known as having ‘chaotic’ as part of your alignment), I have decided to toss up an extra little post, showing you some of the miniature/dungeon related stuff I’ve been working on recently. Call it Hallowe’en inspired? No? Well, there is food involved, so it’s close. In any case, allow me to present a rogue’s first foray into miniature food!
Bread for a dollhouse…bread for a dungeon! (Don’t confuse the two). Pardon the photo quality – I took these on a mobile device. I have super macro shots, but they’re not accessible at the moment (long story).
The goodies that Arnan The Barbarian is eyeing up here are made from polymer clay (specifically, Fimo) and are shockingly, excitingly easy to make. For the approximately 1:12 scale bread and salami platter (that’s dollhouse sized) I followed the bread tutorial on YouTube, property of the talented and impossibly sweet SugarCharmShop. She has tutorials for ALL THE FOOD THINGS, plus another craft channel and a nail art channel. Go. Check it out. Marvel and wonder etc. 😀 For the salami, I made it up myself as I went along, and everything is shaded and coloured with chalk pastels (beyond the original clay colour). Once I’d made the dollhouse bread (also perfect for charms or fridge magnets), I wondered if I could make 28mm scale stuff for dungeon terrain…
Arnan the Barbarien, trying to decide which size bread is more appropriate for his post-skull bashing appetite. For reference, Arnan is about 30mm/1.2 inches tall.
Turns out you can! I just miniaturised everything further, using Arnan (who, being a barbarian, is about 30mm tall – a little over an inch) as a guide for size. Nothing is glued down yet, and I’m planning to add cheeses and pickles for a Dungeon Deli (my deli franchise someday?) setup 😉 If you guys are interested, I’ll keep you updated! (I’m also quite keen to try my hand at some miniature cosmetics, just sayin’… 😉 )
Chatting at the office water cooler, Ogg and Grogg suddenly heard ‘food’ and ‘updates’.
What do you think, fellow adventurers? Do they have a Dungeon Deli in your questing region? What’s your favourite mid-adventure or tavern bar snack?
Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!
