Some Kind of Progress....
I have all of the design roughed out. I still have to do more carving and then smoothing with files and emery boards.
I am liking it so far. When it is finished, I will put a dark walnut stain over the whole thing.
They are now carrying Polyform Air Drying clay...That's the company that puts out Sculpey products. It seems that Polyform is making all kind of changes in their product line. It looks like they may be changing their lovely flesh colored Super Sculpey to gray...ICK!
I still have quite a bit left, but I am going to be looking to stock up if I find it anywhere. That's what I use for my people.
When I returned, I found that Zar had been putting together a plan for the stairwell. That is just as dark as the res of the second floor.
He scrounged around in my stash and found a single French door. It looks like we will be building a skylight above the stairs...Sometimes he is a handy guy to have around.
Tessie, not so much. I caught her looking down to the mock up and talking to herself. "I guess it will have to do. The stairs themselves were much more fun. I remember sliding down them in Zar's bath tub. I even have photos to prove it. Go here to look. http://caseymini.blogspot.com/2009/03/lost-and-found.html Sliding down a short, bumpy french door is going to be sooooo boring. Drat it!"
Oh well. She will just have to find other amusements...Like trying to get into the workroom.
I have to go replace 23 photos that disappeared from the Dec.28 to the Jan. 2 entries now. I got scared and backed up the rest of 2012 last night. I want to get the rest of it done before something else happens.
Back to work. See you tomorrow.
