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?

  12. The distance from the girdle to the cutlet is known as the pavilion depth. An ideal cut diamond will reflect light off of one mirror-like facet to another, directing more light through the crown. If the pavilion depth is too shallow or too deep, light can escape through the bottom or sides of the diamond. Ideal Diamond Crown Angle
