A Little Feast for the Tramp by kayanah A Little Feast for the Tramp by kayanah
The Tramp's Little Feast!

This is my entry for the :iconmovieplz1::iconmovieplz2: at :iconsemi-sweeties:

I do know the title on the picture differs from the deviation's title, it was deliberate! =P

I did not make miniatures in a long time and this was the first time in many months I was inspired. :D

I was inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s “Gold Rush” and “The Kid”, adding a couple of items I thought the Tramp might have liked to have on his menu.

Here you have:

-Top Left: a tasty shoe stew with sauce. The Tramp couldn’t resist taking a bite of the sole; sorry about that.

-Bottom left: a delicious rat in a crust with rusty lettuce, how delicious does that look! :D

-Bottom middle: a juicy shoe laces spaghetti with mothballs, with a loaf of barely rotten bread.

-Bottom right: a couple of delicious dancing potatoes to accompany this leftover fish terrine with corn condiment.

-Middle Right: a crunchy and crispy newspaper salad. It’s full of fibers; very nourishing!

-We also have drinks in the cans, it also served as the sauces; no waste tolerated!

Charlie has left his hat and cane there, and Jackie Coogan, -aka The Kid- has forgotten his cap; I wonder if they will return for them…

Every single item was made by me; nothing bought. I have no right over the pictures from “Gold Rush” and “The Kid” but I thought they would be a nice addition.

Material used;

-Sculpey III (and Fimo for the mothballs)
-Translucent Liquid Sculpey
-Chalk Pastels (to add some colors to the clay and to color the TLS)
-2 micro beads (for the rat’s eyes)
-Wood for the boxes
-Paper for the newspaper salad
-Acrylic paint (silver; for the cans)

The canes (carrots, radishes and lettuce) were all made by me.
The hats and cane were also made of polymer clay.

This is cool. Plus, I watched "The Kid" about a week about in drama. Argh, you did a good job! :P

The kid is such a good movie; it's funny and sad and poignant. Love it.
