Heading to Orchard now! ☺ Since ytd, I've actually completed quite a lot of things for the figurines thank goodness! Now there's only the hair and imprint on base left. And then the glazing!!
Now I'm not as scared about the glazing thanks to the dipping method :') I still had to test and trial cause apparently there's this flattening agent in matte glazes, so you really have to mix well before using! Otherwise it'll still be gloss/uneven lol. I actually had to research LOL
BUT THAT'S MORE OR LESS FIGURED OUT. So I really hope that it would be okay 😅
Tomorrow afternoon I have to take photos though...which means I have to finish the order by tonight HAHA. Time to stay up later ☺
Ytd night ET convinced me to sleep and wake up earlier today to work....BUT GUESS WHO WOKE UP AT 11AM AGAIN HAHAHAA. I guess I really should trust my instinct lmao.
Though it's just nice that I don't have to work while feeling exhausted 😅
My friend dropped by today to drop some stuff, so we spent a few hours talking HAHA so I didn't get much done 🙃 It's ok I'm pretty sure I can finish everything by tonight *crossing fingers*
This morning's lunch - a cup of milo and lots of digestive biscuits!!
I was kinda worried that I won't be able to drink the milo, cause there's the one with milk powder inside, and the Australian recipe is also damn milky ugh 😵
I only could find the "whole grain" one in sachet form, and when I saw the white powder my face was literally 😶
But I gave it a try anyway and it's actually okay, although it's not the nice coffee shop milo taste 😅 The ones in tins still the best, but I could never finish those 😐
Here's Buibui accompanying me for lunch haha. He's really so sticky and so scared of being alone???? He's always flying to me whenever I open the door 😅 so yes I bring him along even when I go pee HAHAHA.
Buibui didn't really fly to the windows or away recently, so it was okay to bring him out despite his flight feathers growing out! He's totally flying around the room alr haha.
I still haven't trained him much to fly me when I blow the whistle...so still quite scared haha.
Buibui also recently didn't go inside my craft closet and be all aggressive and territorial whenever I'm crafting?? It's so RARE!!! But it's good HHAA 😍 he's just hanging out on my shoulder, and falling asleep etc LOL.
I wonder how long this is gonna last 😅 but I'm definitely gonna make full use of it hurhur. I do hate locking him in his cage since he hates it so much...but am thinking of putting the cage on some sort of drawer so he can see the window in the cage!! ☺
That's why I was looking for drawers in Japan home etc 😂 Need to find the exact size so it's not very easy 😐 I don't mind stacking up either? But ya the size is the problem la 😅 and also cost omg I don't wanna spend more than $50 on a drawer please 😣
But yes!! Hopefully then being in the cage is a better experience for Buibui HAHA. He loves hanging by the window looking outside, so it'd be nice hehe. And higher is always better for a bird hurhur
Some #handxmadeWIP cause I feel like it hurhurhur.
I had to make a checkered scarf for one of my orders, and I was a bit scared I'd spend a lot of time on it? But okay la it wasn't too bad 😂
I'm pretty sure there's a better way to do this though............instead of cutting out squares one by one manually hahaha
Stacking them according to what I see in the photo. Thank goodness I could at least see some sort of pattern from the ref photo!
Dammit only realise I was focusing on the wrong thing no thanks to my cracked screen HAHAHAHA. But yes here's the scarf!
She's wearing winter clothing so I made the sweater thicker HAHA GOT THE WINTER CLOTHES FEEL RIGHT #selfpraise
I'm super heart pain about the rest I didn't need to use tho 😅 all my effort..........
I then dusted some white soft pastels on the grey squares cause the scarf on the ref photo looked textured hahaha. It's the little things that counts!! ☺
Here's part of the reference photo hehehe (have to crop out face for privacy reasons!)
Can't wait to take proper photo for these! But hope you can see what I mean by the "textured" grey part of the scarf!! 😂
Mine is definitely not perfect, but it's the best I can do so far 😣 the squares moves around and it's really hard to keep the edges straight 😭
Also, I came here earlier for MUJI and turns out it's renovating LOL WIN LIAO I SO SUAY HAHA
People who appreciates my work makes me happy :')
Thank you for your kind words Jasmine!! 😭

The most difficult project I've had to make so far! 😵
I think it's really cute that the female is the one hugging the male, it says a lot about the relationship doesn't it? 😆 Truly gives this piece such character ☺
Although this was tough, it was definitely very satisfying when it was completed! Thank you Jasleen for believing in me and letting me try out something different! 💕
