Hello dear readers,
I had to complete the third and last of the three scenes on a slice of tree branch before starting with the project of Solly's home. One thing led to another, you'll see what I mean with the next photos and I found myself even more busy, this time with miniatures.
This is the new scene. Trees made out of grapes stems and foam, houses out of ceramic clay, fired in a kiln and than painted. Lake and duck out of my homemade cold porcelain.
First I made a bunch of clay houses intended for this scene (as well as for filling walnuts shells). Then I cooked, the cold porcelain clay, but I didn't calculate the quantity needed for the lake and ducks. This clay has to be used within a limit of time before it dries out, so I made a larger duck to be filled with tiny flowers. And then I made more ducks and, please don't laugh, I began to think that this clay will never end so I gave what was left to some ladies at the center to play with. I made paper flowers to fill some of the empty duck flower to be given as little "thank you" gifts. Now you know what kept me away from Solly's home.
This little fellow is small enough to be displayed in a nutshell. The next photo shows what was used to fill it.
Now I have time at leisure to go and enjoy visiting my favorite blogs with a hope that my comments will be visable.
I wish you, my dear readers, a lovely weekend with blessings.
