Recently we finished another huge miniature project. What an oxymoron right. Anyway, this time we get to do 300 spoons in 2 weeks time. @_@ I know right. Vinn was having her vacation leaving me to handle this massive project on my own.
This is the finished product. The client wanted 5 fully painted spoons of batik design. We have our new miniature package up if you are looking for similar products. Check it out.
I really have to thank all the people that helped us for this project. In order of appearance, like movie.. ceh..
Martojaks.com, Bunnynoo.com, Kimberly Tee, ScionofDarkness.blogspot.com and last but not least, my konco Binn Pang. Check out their blogs, 2 of them are really great artists whom are available for freelance jobs. *hint. You can also shop for clothes at bunnynoo.com. What a cute group of artists right?
The spoons are smaller than they seem and doing 300 of them is difficult when you have so many cats around waiting to sit on the spoons and leave their fur on the spoons.
After we are done, we still have to give the spoons a good few layers of gloss to make them shine. Finishing touches are very important when it comes to art. It is of course hazardous to inhale the fumes from the spray lacquer so we had to gear ourselves up properly for this task.

Bottom of the spoon was also painted with love, sweat and of course much curses during the journey.:)
The result was worth it.. look at the finished spoons in the packaging, so pretty! Packaging weren’t done by us this time though.
It was a learning experience… we ended up splurging on good acrylic paints in order to finish faster. Cheap paints are less pigmented and are not as opaque. It usually takes a great deal more layers to complete the painting compared to using expensive but good quality paints.
Thank you to all the people that helped!
