I love making these Korean 1st Birthday figurines and luckily, I have had the awesome opportunity to make a few of them over the past year.
Each figurine is made out of gumpaste and stand at 4-5 inches tall. All the little details are hand painted in food grade gel colors and edible pearl and gold luster dust. I also add pearl dust to the clothing to give the illusion of silk cloth. To see how they're made, please take a look at the 1st Hanbok Dol I made and shared under this post HERE, Korean Hanbok Dol Cake.
Ci's Hanbok Dol Figurine (June 2012): My 2nd Hanbok Dol Figurine and custom made to match the little, birthday's girls traditional Korean dress: She stood at 5 inches tall. I also made a couple dozen gumpaste flower blossoms and gumpaste butterflies to decorate her own cake with.
Maddison's Hanbok Dol Figurine (Aug 2012): She's a replica of the very 1st Hanbok Dol Figurine I made a little over a year ago but instead of standing at only 3 inches tall, this one is 5 inches tall.
Jenn's Hanbok Dol Figurine's (Nov 2012): 2 Cousins celebrating their 1st birthday together. Each one was custom made to match their traditional, 1st birthday Hanbok Dress and they're 4 inches tall.
Updated Oct 2022: Check out my Flickr album for more of these beautiful figurines, each custom ordered and made in either Gumpaste or Polymer Clay.
