I don't think that they did much of anything the other day when I asked them to clean up.
There is a bright side to it though. I found these. I am sure that they are probably somewhere else on the blog, but I don't remember where.
They are made with microscope slides, copper tape and photos of paintings. They are brighter than they appear in this photo. I am sure that I must have made them for this cottage. That's where they were stored all this time.
I simply cut the pictures to fit the slide and then wrapped the edges with copper foil tape. They are decorated with fancy gold self stick strips that I got at a mini show. Quick craft.
The gesso dried without a hitch this time...It probably just really needed two coats to fight the weather.
It was 19.5 degrees F, when I got up this morning. It is two in the afternoon and it is only 40.
We got up to frozen pipes this morning... It took us hours to get the water working right.
April and Amare came over so that kept me away from minis.
Later we have an appointment with the vet for Mookie...He is 18 and not as well as he could be. Keeping our fingers crossed for him.
Anyway, not a great day for minis, overall.
If you look closely at the photo of the end of the house, you will see some pencil marks where I am planning to do stone work. That will have to wait until tomorrow now. If I am going to use the air drying clay, I would prefer to do the whole side at once.
I did manage to finish the rug. I trimmed it and colored the raw edges with a matching sharpie type pen.
It just may stay in the bathroom. It looks nice in front of the
I have to go get ready to go to the vet now...Wish us luck!
See you tomorrow.
