Spent a quiet Sunday evening listing NEW domestic items on my website. Tomorrow I will add some images ( I only have the Digital images for now) and also show the items finished.
All these new items are in someway domestic items. I love the simplicity of some of the designs and have always wanted to start a collection of what would describe as high quality realistic "essentials". I have more to list; a table, a set of old saucepans and frying pans, and a plunger (posser is the correct name but not well known).
All items (excluding the sink) are made from metal and can either be polished or painted.
I shall keep you posted when I have the "real thing" photographed.
Architectural cornice etc
I am going to be listing some of the cornicing including elements of the room below. I shall keep you updated.
Just a little update - it has been printed! Or at least 95% has been printed. One wall was wonky so is being reprinted. Parts of it will be made from wood but these can not be created...
I have a small selection of 18th and 19th century boots and shoes available unpainted ready for you to cast your artistic eye on them and create wonderful creations.
I have painted one of each design in order to show the detailing better. However the shoes lend themselves to being painted in wonderful 18th century textile colours. The odd pair of shoes has been created without its ribbon so you can add a real one.
All boots and shoes are now available from the website unpainted. Below is a gallery of the designs. They cost £3.50 each
Last year I started working on some new designs. I wanted some accessories to compliment what I do but also that were more simple in design and none the less detailed. I have yet to print, mould and cast them but below is a sneak preview of some of the items that will be on offer later in the year:
and a little more NEWS...
For those of you who see me it fairs you will know that I have many more items than what I sell through...
Miniatura held is 69th show this weekend at the NEC Birmingham England. We had a stand at the 2 day show and on the second day managed to take some time off to visit other stands and talk to the stall holders. I thought I would share some images I took. If you did not make it to the show or are just interested to know what was at the show then I hope that todays blog will be interesting.
I have been thinking about creating some room scenes for my stand at shows and when I saw this parquet flooring as a kit I thought how brilliant it was...I know these floors take hours to create but this kit saves loads of time and still looks authentic.
As you can see from the photo there are other options for wooden floors and wooden panelling.
The strips are stuck to double sided sticky backed paper so that you can then apply it to the floor of the model you are working on.
The company are called Malcoms Miniatures and can be contacted through their website.
