half inch scale hummingbird feeder

I hand sculpted this hummingbird feeder from polymer clay. It is 1:24 scale, half the size of dollhouse scale. The part I am most proud of is the shepherd's hook.

I wanted it to look like wrought iron so I hammered out some aluminum wire. Then after shaping it into the correct shape I painted it in flat black. It took a couple of tries of hammering and shaping before it looked the proper scale. I am happy with the results.

On my list of things I want to make is a diorama box to photograph my garden miniatures. I am going to start on that today along with sculpting another snail.


  1. Another amazing piece of art! Love it.

  2. This is just TOO cute! You're making me want to go to Hobby Lobby and get some clay or something :D

  3. Perfect!
    I can see some wee hummingbirds visiting it while you are asleep, (you do sleep don't you Star ;)


Thank you for taking time to reply. I really appreciate it.
