1:12 Banana Bunches by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Banana Bunches by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Dollhouse scale banana bunches made from polymer clay.

Almost done with the fruit section for my show next Saturday. I've wanted to make bananas again for a while and finally got around to doing it. Pretty happy with the result. :)

I made the little basket as well. It's not meant to look pretty; I'm mass producing these to use in the market stalls my husband is building me. So far I'm up to 15 or so baskets in all shapes and sizes. They're not much to look at alone, but filled with items they look decent enough.

You know when a very small clay model of something looks so adorable, you almost wish you could squish it in between your fingers because you can? It may sound cruel, but those bananas remind me of mini marshmallows, which I used to squish all the time between my fingers. XD

In my personal opinion, your fruits are the best! So real and enticing. Bananas happen to be one of my favorite fruits. ^^

Nice work on the bananas! The black spots are what really makes them look like bananas. And the basket looks great!

first, i want to say i love your miniature foods. i was just wondering why you say all of them are 1:12 when many, including these lovely bananas, are obviously a lot smaller than 1/12 actual size.

:iconbon-appeteats:
Bon-AppetEats Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you! These bananas, and all of my other foods, are 1:12 scale. Measurements have been taken from Angie Scarr's book, and she works primarily in 1:12 scale. If anything, I'd bet some of my items are just a tiny bit over scale.
