This Malaysian Miniature Artist Makes Cute Food Accessories You'll Want To Wear Every Day
They look real enough to eat!
Mmmm, we can't wait to sink our teeth into these ang ku kuehs... Wait, what do you mean we can't eat the tiny one?!
Oh, so it turns out that the tiny ang ku kueh is a polymer clay figurine that has been meticulously handmade to the smallest detail by miniature artist Ling Hooi Yin! Don't they look just like the real thing?
Ling, who is also a multimedia designer, started dabbling with making miniature food in 2010. She went on to set up TinyPinc, a brand specialising in cutesy handmade miniature figurines in 2011.
Ling has since decided to pursue her hobby full-time, selling her miniature works and accessories at pop-up stores around Klang Valley and online stores such as Etsy. She also takes in custom orders from both local and international customers.
Besides mini ang ku kuehs, Ling has also created some incredibly realistic scaled down replicas of Malaysia's favourite kuihs and cookies. The onde onde looks good enough to eat... :p
If you reeeaaallyyy love food, you can now wear roti bakar (with kaya and butter or fried eggs), char koay teow, or putu mayam as everyday fashion accessories!
How about some mini ais batu campur and aiskrim potong for sunny days?
In addition to Malaysian food, TinyPinc's catalogue also includes sweet treats such as lollipops, pop corn, and waffles
Let them have cake! And cupcakes... and bundt cakes... ALL THE CAKES.
You would've noticed by now that we've only shown you Ling's mini food figurines (who doesn't like food, c'mon). Fret not, the 24-year-old takes orders for super kawaii figurines like Baby Groot, chubby hamsters, and Gudetama too!
TinyPinc Miniatures' accessories and figurines are priced between RM20 to RM120. Where to buy:
