My first 3d print!

To make our wedding cake more unique, I have created this model based off our Chinese zodiac animals – Dragon and Mouse on top of a pile of our treasures. I sent to print in polyamide by i.materialise.
Here is a photo of the caketopper –

And of course, it’s not a good caketopper if it’s not on top of a delicious cake~!

Ching Dynasty Empress

It’s been a long while since I last used pastel, it’s getting really rusty!
Maybe I can get back to that again soon….

Animal Sketches and Studies

Drawing from photos may not be the best way to learn animals anatomy, but I just gotten the book The Weatherly Guide to Drawing Animals, and gave me the itch to do some quick sketches of animals.

Edible Art for X’mas 2010

Because I’ve a sweet tooth, yet I can only eat so much of it, I become really picky on sweets. Especially when I’m making  them, other than taste wonderful, they also need to look pretty like an art piece.
I make Chocolate Truffles as X’mas gifts for friends and family each year and also, here is the first Yule Log cake I’ve made~!

Wedding cake

A type of art that I do occasionally and edible is baking and decorating cakes.
But this is the first time I did a wedding cake, requested by one of my very good friend!

A chocolate rum cake, dark and white grand mariner chocolate mousse fillings, decorated with whipped cream.
Going along with the movie theme that the couple has used for their wedding, I’ve created the red carpet for them.
I was so relieved when the cake did not melt and collapse after on display for 3 hours!

First Figurative Scuplture

I always have this believe that it is very difficult to use clay and it has very delicate techniques required to even start sculpting anything, because I’ve never sculpt before.
Today, my teacher from portrait class introduced me a monitor of a sculpting stiudio who let me borrowed some clay and play around. It’s touchable, feelable zbrush!
