The Big Apple....... Commission

Wondering if I took that crazy Paris commission - mentioned in my first blog update of this year (here)? Well of course I did, and it actually became a larger order than 300 miniature sculpted pieces of fruit... the client requested hundreds of perfect little miniature pieces - all with a realistic finish and to scale.

In my typical fashion I'm working 10+ hour days, stopping only for essential interruptions, such as one day at Disneyland during the 3-day weekend. See my photo at the end of this post of one of my favourite rides - gorgeous lit up like that isn't it?!

So... a few more days to complete this giant Snow White apple undertaking and I'll be able to get back to things a little more fun - like 'Myrtle the Witch' and 'The Hidden World'. Stay tuned here or at the Facebook page for updates on those projects in a week or so...

Here are some photos of my work in progress which I took this morning whilst the next batch of fruit sculpts was being hardened in the clay oven...

Can't imagine making 300 of these, but your apples look so real and beautiful!

Thank you all so much for your flattering comments.

Georgie - what a surprise to see a sibling using blogger (or even reading my blog!). Yes - making the wrong apple would have been a bit of a problem! Thanks a lot! xxx
