1:48 Scale Bread by Bon-AppetEats 1:48 Scale Bread by Bon-AppetEats
1:48 Dollhouse Scale bread made from polymer clay.

So I was aiming for 1:24 scale and somehow managed to go a scale under. I knew they seemed really small for 1:24 and I was right when I finally found a printable doll scale sheet. At least now I know I can make 1:48 foods! These are a tiny bit on the large side but they still fit and don't look too out of place with a 1:48 doll.

Yes, it is a lot harder than 1:12 scale - especially if your clay has the consistency of chewed bubble gum when you get it warmed up. >.>

Going to try for 1:24 scale items today.

Thanks! Bread is actually one of the easier things to make once you get the texturing and coloring down. :)

Oh my... That is... That's amazing. That's just so incredibly tiny, and I don't see any difference in quality between these and your 1:12s... Very well done, very well done indeed! :)

Thank you! I'm really pleased they look just as good; it's really hard trying to get the textures on such small pieces. >.<

I had the same problem with texture the other day. At one stage I could NOT get the piece I was working on off my fingers. Must be hot hands and a cold heart. These breads are lovely by the way. I like the way you always give us a reference point by which to judge sizes.

Try dusting your hands with cornstarch/baking powder. It'll keep the clay from sticking. I have that issue and my hands are almost always really cold.

Thank you! With things this small there needs to be a size reference. :)

Thanks. I try that and water sometimes but when you are at a crucial stage you tend to get wrapped up and forget these things.

Yeah, I was dreading 1:48 scale because it's so tiny. >.< It's frustrating trying to texture and color small foods like that. I shall happily retreat back to 1:24 scale for a while until I feel like tackling 1:48 for real. lol

I'm using my magnifier for these, so that isn't too bad. I just need to go out and buy smaller paintbrushes so I can actually paint them instead of smooshing them. lol

Ah, a magnifier would come in handy :XD: Let's hope there are paintbrushes small enough! :giggle:
