1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Captain Nemo's Organ Room - 1:12 (++ Pics) on: July 10, 2016 01:45:54 PM
 The Nautilus - a submarine of fantastic proportions. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was first imagined by Jules Verne in his epic novel and re-imagined in the 1954 film of the same name.

During the scene where the giant octopus is attacking the submarine, I took my chance - a scene of agitated disorder ripe for the picking!

So I created a 1:12 scale room box for Alpha Stamps for their underwater steampunk theme.






























2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 1930's Detective Room Box 1:12 Scale (++Pics) on: July 10, 2016 01:04:11 PM
I've created a room set in the 1930's, during the Golden Detective Age. The same time as Maltese Falcon and similar stories. Only this detective (Sam Slade, a play on Sam Spade) isn't paid very well and isn't very tidy. In fact, it could be a crime scene. Spilled bottle, footprints, upset chair, etc.

There's a lot of pictures here, but if you have any questions about how I've made something, comment below and I'll do my best to answer.

Sam Slades office is presented to you hence:













































3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Red Dragon Tattoo Shop Miniature (Gypsy Wagon) on: February 19, 2016 07:48:34 PM
This week for the Gypsy Soul laser cuts Design Team I made the Red Dragon Tattoo shop - a mobile tattoo shop for all your artistry needs.

Not sure what scale it is, though. Seems a bit small for 1:12, but too big for 1:24.























4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Flourish & Blotts (Harry Potter) Miniature on: February 02, 2016 07:17:17 PM
Last week for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts DT I made the front window for Flourish & Blotts, the bookstore in Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. I made a giant stack of miniature books and used a frame from GSLC, added some clear plastic packaging and cut some cardboard to fit. Filled with books, scrolls and even a tiny little lantern in the bottom right corner.









5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Junk Shrine on: February 02, 2016 07:08:54 PM
I'm on the Design Team this year for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and was sent these lovely shrine boxes. I've been playing a lot of Fallout 4 lately, as I'm a total gamer chick. So melding craft and post apocalyptic gaming, I give you Junk Shrines. As Knickertwist told me "You can stick any old thing in there" - so I did. Quite literally. You'll find I've raided my husbands junk bin for bits and bobs and then I stuck said bits and bobs into the shrine.

It's covered in kids "play foam" (that colourful stuff in the kids aisle of the craft store) which I've painted to look like metal. After the paint comes my Rust Dust - a recipe I created to give metal a more accurate looking rust. If you're interested, I made a tutorial on it here: https://youtu.be/UJbaZVShTu0









6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3 Story Tudor Home - 28mm Scale on: December 09, 2015 01:00:07 PM
This is a three story Tudor style home build entirely out of foam core and designed by myself (it's not pre-fabricated in any way). Accents are done with wood and bits of styrofoam floral accents. Texture is done with a sand/PVA glue and paint.

Each story is 3 inches tall and measures about 14 inches from the base to the peak of the chimney.




















7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Guillotine (Warning: Some blood) on: December 05, 2015 08:26:15 PM
I've been building wargaming terrain for many years now and I wanted to share with you a recent project that my twisted mind came up with - and that is a guillotine. It's more fantasy than practical, and I'm not happy with the blood (because I know I can do better).

The base is carved out of pink insulation foam, the majority of the wooden bits are coffee stir sticks from the dollar store, the "blade" is just cereal box card, the grass is "static grass" and the dirt (trade secret) is dried coffee and tea grounds.

So, not for the faint of heart:













8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Knit Your Bit Roombox on: November 30, 2015 07:08:18 PM
This is a roombox I made from a wooden box I found at the dollar store. It's based on World War 2 propaganda posters, asking women to "knit their bit" for the soldiers. This room belongs to Hazel, an older woman with a husband and many family friends in Germany, fighting Hitler.

Both of my grandfathers were in the war, so this piece holds a special place for me.















9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Game of Thrones Dragon Egg on: May 20, 2015 09:17:57 PM


In April everyone else was decorating Easter Eggs. I decided to decorate Dragon Eggs a la Game of Thrones. Everything I used was from the dollar store - the base which was a "dinosaur egg", layered with scales cut out from kids craft foam. I added texture paste and painted it to try and mimic Khaleesi's green egg.

My husband was nice enough to pose with it to show scale.




The most time consuming aspect was cutting out all the dragon scales - not the most fun thing ever, but I just sat in front of the TV and did it.
