Lately I have been in the states again. And thankfully reunited with my paints and inspiration. The last few years have been tough and great at the same time. Though I haven’t blogged mostly due to not really making much or painting I have thought about the blog often. Mostly the fact that it requires an overhaul in many areas. I have many previous blog posts a great deal of which I had in the past neglected to categorize correctly, and believe it or not it drives me mad. I have had an issue with an Etsy user who uses the name I gave to my blog which I am currently deciding on changing. To what I am still making sure I wont be stepping on toes at least in my own paddling pools.
I completed a 1:144 scale house which as the title suggests is an orange segment (not real of course!). I have put the pictures below. Whilst I didn’t sculpt the orange segment myself it is a plastic toy fruit I painted over and built the house around. The house is made of paper clay, green stuff, modeling wood, wire, beads and styrene sheets to name a few parts. I have listed this in my shop on Etsy.
It is great to see what I make now and where I was a few years ago looking through my flickr stream, and onto new things! Speaking of which I have decided to take part in Undersized Urbanite which is a miniature contest that looks like a great deal of fun and reason to build something with a due date. I have a few ideas of where to go but given I am already starting late I am trying to make sure I don’t bite off more than I can chew (which I am likely to).
This is where I have gotten so far other than the size mock up which I am saving for a later post.
Until Next time!
