I just want to know why...

Reformed Smoker said...

Don't we all Zeroth, let's stick with 42, sit back and enjoy the orange :-)

Kathryn said...

so now what do you do with it?

James said...

Is it edible?

Emily said...

seriously james? is it edible? if your serious you add considerable doubt to the intelligence of man kind. really cool orange though! haha

Cody said...

Like I remind all my little pupils, Non-Toxic does not mean edible :)

killriot77 said...

@emily "you're"

Steve said...

Beautiful! I love it. Art for the sake of art, very well done! Why do people have to ask why?

doswheeler said...

Now that is truly amazing! Wow!

As a person who has a lot of time on his hands, let me be the first to say that the tiny-orange creator has too much time on his hands and may need to consult a therapist of some sort.

you got patience!

xiirus said...

Wow! I've seen candy rolled up that way, but it didn't go this far.

Johan said...

I make smaller oranges. But this is definitely the smallest woman-made orange. At least they try and that's why we love them.

Oolong said...

If you made it out of marzipan it would be edible and even funnier.

Miss Cellania said...

What, you mean it's not marzipan? What is it, then?

Nathan said...

Colored fondant icing maybe?

David said...

Now that's just cool. Anyone who has ever spent the same amount of time playing a video game as you have making this has no room to ask "why?". I'd do it if I had any sort of art skill whatsoever.

eirewolf said...

It's polymer clay. I work in polymer clay myself, but I tend to make fantasy creatures rather than tiny food. These miniaturists amaze me. Check out this site if you want to see more minis; some of them will blow your mind: www.cdhm.org

Iñigo said...

awesome

Suzanne said...

Johan, are you seriously implying that men are superior and women can only "try"? You really don't want to go there.

HM Team said...

Wow! More comments on

StumbleUpon reviews - u folks know how to have a good time. Enjoy.

and

Reddit reviews - totally hilarious man! rotfl!

Cat Martin said...

haha that's class!it would break your soul if someone stood on it though...

jasmine.celion said...

would you tell me how did you sent this page to others?

humantractor said...

That's just g'damn incredible. could have gone without the massively zoomed in shots of the artist's fingernails, however.

i suggest you to put some social bookmarking icon in ottom of your page and link them to something like dig to improve your rank and distribution

Evan said...

People just don't appreciate these beautiful small oranges. I personally can get enough of them. I have a large collection of small oranges as well as apples, tomatoes, pears...

I onces saw a pineapple at an tiny replica fruit conference and did not buy it. I have not gone a day without thinking about it and that was many years ago.

dbmoneyyy said...

very neat but i don't like the swerve at the end. it should be noted that it is a different orange cut up in the last photo. i refuse to believe that there is a knife with a handle that small. don't get me wrong i give you all the credit for making the world's smallest man made orange in the picture prior but i just felt deceived. maybe if you could do some sort of caption or formal apology or something...that'd be pretty diesel. you're in it for the fame but son, you gotta reconnect with your roots.

I always thought:Why can't i find more women to have sex with?...turns out they are busy making tiny oranges.

Ricky said...

Wow. Just amazing. I love it.

I don't get people who ask 'why?' It's like climbing a mountain. Why? Because it's there. Why make a tiny orange? Because you can, and it will look freakin' awesome.

Cherish the doubt. Lesser species live without.

*Sarah* said...

Wow, most of these comments are ridiculous. I think it's great and takes a lot of skill. I hate when people ask why for any art - it's ART you morons! Anyway, kudos to you :)

P.S. got the link from Craftzine

Dragoness said...

wow - I make small items from polymer clay myself including miniature fruit - I have to say your orange is awesome, am I right in thinking the plate and knife are the same as those used in dolls houses (to scale models)?

DianeF said...

The miniature orange pictures have been taken directly from Angie Scarr's website. She has had them copywritten for several years.

notebookinhand said...

People put these in their dollhouses. That's what it's for. If you're curious about the dollhouse miniaturists hobby, come and ask us on http://community.livejournal.com/recruit_miniers/ if you have livejournal.

No, they're not edible, it's polymer clay. The technique is called 'caning', and it's similar to the technique used for boiled sweets, and certain beads.

notebookinhand said...

Also, yes, knives that little exist- but they are not 'real' knives they are miniature ones for in dollhouses. She cut it up using a scalpel then put the miniature knife there to complete the miniature scene.

PolymerClayTutor said...

Love the Polymer Clay Tute! Been reading some of the comments... man there sure are some interesting people out there! (Probably been eating way too many polymer clay oranges!)

Everett said...

thats basically how you make taffy

xasiancakesx said...

OMFG.
Man, i wish i had an unnecessarily small orange..
seriously. omg.

Lawnermower said...

I think this is how God made all the oranges

Melodie said...

wowzers, always wondered how God made the orange, much better than the explanation my parents gave!

Daniel said...

holy waste of time!

that is awesome

Mrs. said...

So I was wondering why there were stupid people on this planet, and now I know. So they can make rude comments to make themselves feel big!
To the people that say it's a waste of time, maybe we think you sitting on your ass in front of your piddly PC is a waste of time :)
The orange is a miniature, the knife was easily made with clay and other materials. It's something people enjoy doing. Tards.

pinkeye said...

I like this orange!! I want to make it and others for my Barbie group!! Does it dry on its own or do I have to bake it??? Im guessing the clay comes in different colors??

Angela said...

Well I for one get it. I love minatures and I really love your orange. Have you made any other fruit?

shayeshayeshaye said...

forget why!

dude! can you show us how to make the smallest watermelon? with pits?

God bless!

Sarah said...

love love love

renderz said...

I love the fact this serves no practical purpose other than to do it! Brilliant. The person must have the patience of a Saint, or he/she was really bored that day! :-)

Bravo

Foodaholic said...

Very cute. I don't thhink I would be able to make such a tiny object, but you did a great job!

MiMiVanPeePee said...

Thank you for posting this tutorial. You rock and I love you. I'll use this technique to make banana canes! :)

frenchman said...

I once made a 6 foot high carrot made from papier mache.

I love the tiny oranges, they even look right being "peeled"

Susan Averello said...

I love you did the skin, I've made slices but would have thought how to texture the skin.

Dionnie said...

i just died.

Jessica said...

I'd like to make a little orange necklace or pair of earrings, can these be made into beads? very cute!

*is doubled up with laughter... can't breathe...*

"I onces saw a pineapple"

Pineapple!

"... at an tiny replica fruit conference"

Tiny... fruit... replica... CONFERENCE!

"... and did not buy it. I have not gone a day without thinking about it and that was many years ago."

EVERY DAY!

*tears pouring out of eyes as the hilarity becomes too much to bear*

crazycat_turtle said...

*is dead on the floor*

Roommate comes in, frantic, tries to resuscitate, but is unsuccessful. Curious and saddened, she reads what is written on the screen. And promptly asphyxiates from intense amusement.

The end.

(Tiny. Fruit. Replica. Conference.)

Anoop said...

Just Build Stuff said...

Orange you glad it's not a banana.

Shaay said...

Re: Tiny. Fruit. Replica. Conference.

Do you think they held it in a mini-mall?

And, you do realize he's been pining for that pineapple for years... a classic tale of unrequited yearning for the torrid passion(fruit) that can never, never be.

*wipes away tear*

Schaufenster said...

This is very cool but I think it is very pathetic that lots of guys had to point out that a woman made this....Misogyny is gross...

Alantha said...

So freaking cute
