Please! I Am Trying to Read Here!
I started this one last night. I am going to make it so that it slides over the carrying strap through the bottom. The nice thing about Elf socks, is they don't have heels.
Walter took the other camera back yesterday and they gave him a new one, without questioning, when he showed them the photos.
I will take better photos when it is finished. I just wanted to show you that I fixed the chairs and their upholstery. I painted the chairs themselves burnt sienna. And I freshened up the paint on the fireplace.
The upholstery is the same as it was before, however, I did paint it with brick red acrylic paint.
Yes. You can paint fabric. If you try it, be sure to use your fingers or a Kleenex to rub it in and make it even. No blobs on top.
It will just be a bit stiffer when dry, but I like the color much better than the fire engine red that it was before. This tones it down a bit. I can see that the closest chair needs the seat re-glued.
The two ladies in the photo were my first attempt at 1/2" scale dolls about 20 years ago. I have to repaint the faces. They are getting rather worn.
They are in a permanent pose. The dresses are made of pleated trim that was around at the time that I made them. I am not sure if it is still in stores.
Anyway, I am going to go see if I can trade the book for some tuna fish now....I think that Widget comes up with enough ideas for getting into trouble, without an instruction manual.
See you tomorrow.
