Disneyland's Diamond Celebration

Disneyland 60th Anniversary Candy Apples

It's Disneyland's 60th anniversary!  For their diamond celebration, Disneyland rolled out a bunch of new diamond celebration themed treats.  The Mickey & Minnie candy apples were already adorable, but somehow they became even cuter!  I attempted to recreated them in 1/12th scale; you can even follow along in the video tutorial below:

From the work in progress shot, you can see I intended on making quite a few Mickey & Minnie candy apples.  The original 12 candy apples were ruined when I was experimenting with the sugar coating.  The first attempt, I tried mixing blue chalk with the sand and then sealing it...that turned into a hot mess! It started turning splotchy and lumpy :( Splotchy I don't mind since you can add several layers to make it opaque, but the lumpiness was driving me insane.  

So on the second attempt, I painted the bottom half of the apple in blue acrylic, dipped it in sand, and then sealed it.  This turned out a lot better.  I feel like remaking these again with a more vivid blue, though.  Yeesh, never satisfied am I?

  3. This could be due to allergies or a lack of suitable items existing to be bought. You can also use beads, colours and a style that perfectly complements the style of the finished piece of jewellery. know more about storiesofsilversilk.com
