See those tiny brown things in the top left corner...Those are the benches to go with the table. I used the smallest strip of white, second down from them, to make the legs. Can we say tiny torture? Everything has to be done with tweezers.
And the spots I am seeing? When I take close ups of the interior, I can see spots on the wrought iron work on the roof, that I missed with the black paint.
Also in this photo. The strip in the foreground is where I got the legs for the table. The white inlay on the cabinet is the strip to the right... I went over it all with the stain to knock down the white.
All of the interior wallpaper is Joe Hermes. The exterior brick is Brodinax and the cobblestones are embossed paper from the train store.
I still need to find some things to put in the cobblestone alley way. Maybe some 1/4" high garbage cans?
At least we have something to eat...Turkey on the table and pie on the top of the cupboard.
I found those at a mini how a couple of years ago. I think that it is meant to be for 1/4" scale, a chicken...It was white I simply stained it when I did the rest f the furniture.
This one is by no means perfect, but now I can see the spots that I missed and will be able to fix them.
I put three more together last night. Now all I have to do is the hard part. The biggest problem is going to be choosing how to decorate them.
I flipped two of them so that the interior is on the left. We shall see how long these hold my interest...
I have to go make the spots disappear now.
See you tomorrow.
