Miniature toadstools in 1:12 scale

From time to time I make some miniature mushrooms of all sorts. From brown regular mushrooms, toadstools, wild mushrooms to fantasy, magical, colourful mushrooms (especially blue ones! My favourite!).

Miniature candles in 1:12 scale


Miniature candles in 1:12 scale

The candles are handmade by me, sculpted and shaped with patience and care. Candles look old, dusty and drippy, waxy, as if they have been used already. Wax (really polymer clay) melted and drips around the candles, all over them, between and at the bottom. Smoky effect is achieved by dusting candles with chalk pastels. Tiny black knots add realism to candles as well as careful rendering.

Miniature green candles in 1:12 scale

Candles cluster is basically dark green, but there are nice transitions to lighter green, even a bit yellow accents at some parts.

Short note re symbolism of the green coloured candles:
Green candles are a color that is associated with anything to do with growth, from fertility to harvest, to include green in your spell is to ensure health and success. Green candles represent Earth magick, physical and emotional healing, youth rejuvenation, and renewal. Assists agriculture to encourage a good harvest. Use it to invoke or represent the Earth element. In workings for health and healing, green is an anti-inflammatory. Green is used in spells for love, marriage, and making love. Green influences affection, opposed to red (which is used for passionate love, lust, and sex). Green also influences fidelity, reconciliation, justice, beauty, youth, attracts love, friendships, social functions and delights, indulgence, pleasure, antiques, treasure, worldly possessions, healing cancer, helping with female problems, as well as to find romantic love through activating the heart chakra. Green is also used in any circumstance requiring a fresh, healthier outlook, or a repeat or renewal of a spell in order to perpetuate it, or protect it from deterioration. Use a green candle when you feel confused, angry, or out of control. Green also helps relieve stress, tension, resentment, and impatience. Green is useful if you are con-dependent, or feel emotionally unstable.

Slightly aged and carefully rendered. At the end subtly brushed with grey “ash dusty pastel pigment”.
