Miniature Monday Project: My Witch and Her Castle - Part 3

I hope you've been enjoying these project posts.  This is the point where I lose total focus with painting and move on to something else for my project.  The next step would have been to show you how I painted the roof, but I’m completely distracted by my partially assembled room.

I pulled out all sorts of miniatures from my collection.  Things I’ve made and purchased.  My work table looks like this (YIKES!)

I’ve put everything where I think it would go and always find that I have too much stuff!   I'll ultimately decide what I will use and what will go back into the stash, but that could take days of playing and moving.  In the meantime, I put together these two amazing kits from Cat Wingler, a wonderful miniature doll artist who at one point created kits to go with her dolls.

Both kits are laser cut wood.  The first is a tall standing candelabra and the second is a book stand.  I’ve been holding onto them for ages and am thrilled to finally have a place to use them.  The above pictures are what the kits looked like out of the package.

Here are the assembled projects:

I don’t think I’m going to do anything else to them just yet.

Next post I’ll cover faux painting the roof to look like old copper, show you the accessories selected and the finished project.

Thanks for looking!
