I first started collecting and making items for a miniature photography studio.
With this haul of new minis (so many deals!) I also got some items for my fridge. My inhabitants must do a lot of shopping at an Asian grocer. :) Lots of jams and jars to add volume. Still need some vegetables though. I'll let you know how the whole 1:6 vs 1:12 scale goes.
And I tried my hand at clay food making again. Five grilled chicken dinners with green beans and red roasted potatoes for a summer meal. Making clay food is a very satisfying hobby, but one that takes some practice. Each time I learn a little more...
And the last project on the go was a surprise. My boyfriend got me the house I had been eyeing in a local ad. TADA! We thought it was still in it's box but it turned out to be 1/2 built -an even better surprise! It's a Dura-craft Farmhouse. A little wobbly but very workable.
I plan to add in the second floor, but skip the third floor and any dividing walls. Open concept all the way! I also hope to modernize the front, skipping the covered porch etc. Re-doing the windows...
Check out those gorgeous old floors!
The plan is to have this house as a place to make quick scenes while I work on the larger one. Meanwhile my work space continues to shrink...
I guess I had a bit more to post then I had originally thought. Everything really came together the last 3 days. And to keep the mini projects going I've got a 3D printer & laser wood cutter class and certification on Monday at the local library. For free! How cool is that? I don't know what other people will be making but I'll be busting out some 1:12 goodies for sure.
Wishing you all great weekend, happy mini making!
Macbook is LiLu, Chair is Reac Japan, Camera I have just learned is a 1:6 "Hot Toys City Solider Story" item (search for it on ebay), Equipment case (meant for makeup)/printer/storage container/makeup and brushes/most food items are all Re-Ment meant for 1:6 but can fit in some 1:12 scenes. See previous posts for other kitchen items.
