Miniature animal sculptures
Even while mice, ducklings, and squirrels are already very lovely as is, they get even cuter in tiny. Fanni Sandor is a biologist and artist who creates miniature animal sculptures that may fit on your fingertip. Every 1:12 size dollhouse model is hand-sculpted from polymer clay and decorated with precise detailing to create extremely realistic dolls.
Since he was young, Sandor has been fascinated by tiny. At the age of 6, she produced her first artwork out of toothpicks, candle wax, paper, and glue. Since then, she hasn’t looked back. She claims that there are no 1:12 size mini crafting traditions in her country. “When I was in my twenties, I discovered the first professional miniaturist’s work online. I was totally captivated.
Sandor strives to create her miniatures as like their genuine equivalents as she can by using her education in biology. Before creating prototype designs, she analyses images of her subjects. When she’s prepared to begin creating her sculpture, Sandor carefully crafts each component from polymer clay and wire using a set of equipment. After baking, the artist refines the animal’s shape with a tiny chisel before adding colour to bring the creature to life. She occasionally adds fake fur and wings to fluffy animals to make them even more lifelike.
