1:12 Bubble Tea by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Bubble Tea by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Scale bubble tea, made from acrylics and resin. Tapioca pearls and straws made from polymer clay. Glasses were bought online.

I've had people asking me to make these for a while now, so I finally decided to give it a try. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be - the little tapioca pearls at the bottom showed through well when I thought they'd be lost. I was able to find a way to make realistic enough looking ice for the top. The only thing that gave me trouble were the straws. I had to find a way to make them in scale as well as being hollow. Took a few tries but I got it. :)

I love bubble tea! By the way, the other name for tapioca pearls is boba, just in case you ever want to make one of these again :D

This... this is simply magnificent and probably one of your best "first-tries" o.o Looks exactly how bubble tea should: tasty, colorful, very appetizing to look at, and the tapioca pearls show very well ^^ (Love the details with the ice chips too!).
