Dollhouse Miniature Avocado


This week we are making one of my favorite fruits, the avocado. It is really easy once you understand how to do the Skinner Blend technique. If you are unsure about doing the Skinner Blend see my video tutorial here for a complete demonstration on it.

I am exaggerating the colors a bit in my avocado partly so you can see it on camera but also because even in person the colors tend to get lost in this small scale.

For the skin of the avocado (and for the whole ones as well) I used a mixture of equal parts Fimo Leaf Green and Fimo Black.

For the flesh of avocados I used Premo Wasbi and Sculpey III Moss in the Skinner Blend. If you want to go a bit lighter in color feel free to do so.

I also used just a pinch of Fimo Caramel for both the stem of the whole avocados and for the pits of the cut ones.

To make the cut flesh look “wet” I used a simple coat of Future Floor finish. I know the product goes by the Pledge name now but you should still be able to get it. I have been using the bottle I have for many years and have hardly used any of it so it lasts a long time.




Like I said in the video this is going to be a very short blog post, if you have any questions please feel free to ask either here in the comments, in the Youtube comments, or the quickest way to get an answer ask my on Facebook.
