I've FINALLY finished up another little house. This one belongs to a wee mystic.



It's around 15.5" tall



The roof is crawling with creepy things.



Inside there are 4 rooms



The main room I've done as a sort of occultish shop. If you look carefully you can see a small homage to Marie Laveau Smiley



Scrolls, tiny bead bottles and the "Our Lady" shrine I made last week in the background.



A collection of sculls and magical powders. Each tiny vial has the actual contents labeled on the front. They include things like Love Powder, Dragons Blood and Grave Dust.



The next room is the "Reading room" with a crystal ball, tarot cards and more...



... including a palmistry hand made from a dolls hand



In the front window there is the teeniest Ouija board.



Upstairs is where the mystic does all of his private spell work. There's even a picture of super awesome witchy woman Doreen Valiente for inspiration.



And finally storage in the wee attic.

Oh my, that's amazing! How long did it take you? Just imagining how much time must've gone into all those little details is staggering. Not to mention designing it; unbelievable!

Thanks folks Smiley

How long did it take you?

I did it in spurts of inspiration so it's hard to keep track. I did all the painting... then a month later I fiddled around some more... then I had a surge of energy at the end and worked, worked, worked till it was done. If I had to guess I'd say it was maybe around 45 hours... probably more. I'm really slow at crafting though and spend way too much time fiddling about  Wink

Well, I wouldn't say 45 hours is that bad for such an amazing amount of detail, I certainly would've guessed a higher number. c: Great job in any case!

I've never been able to tell the difference. Wink
