Right from the beginning of my dollmaking "career" I made dolls from paintings or statues that I liked.
I haven't done any for a long time but when I saw this painting by Hermann Kern (called the pumpkin seller) I immediately knew I would like to replicate it in 3D.
So off I went shopping for a nice table. I found this beautiful white table and it took me some to paint it brown. I have never distressed furniture but I must admit it is quite fun.
I also am not doing food in polymer clay. I leave that to people who really know what they do. :-)
But after painting the table it just had to be filled with something. So here I am making pumpkins, watermelons, peaches .... And then I needed a basket. I'm sure you know what I did. It is far from perfect. But I like it. And when the table was still to empty for my taste I made a little wooden crate with tiny mosaic tiles.
Now the only thing missing is the Pumpkin Seller. ... lol
