One of the features that makes this miniature version seem so authentic is the attention to scale. A kernel of candy corn is usually between 1/2 and 3/4 inch tall and under 1/2 inch wide. To achieve this size in 1:12 scale, it is useful to have a ruler which measures 1/12 and 1/24 inch. You can see a sample of my miniature candy corn shown here on a figrule measuring 1:12 scale equivalents. You will have the best results in your scale, if you can make the kernels relate to the real size in your scale.
