A place for me to share my current miniature projects, as well as free printies, techniques and projects.
Friday, April 24, 2009
Welcome to my blogspace. There's not much here yet, but what do you expect after less than 15 minutes of life? :-) This will be my own little soapbox from which I will sometimes rant and rave, but from which I also plan to share free resources for miniaturists working in smaller scales such as printies, tutorials, patterns, videos, hints and tips and the like. Along the way I'll be recording in words and photos my progress on various projects, along with noting problems and (hopefully) solutions as I come across them in the construction process in hopes it may help someone else avoid them in the future. So if you are looking for unique miniature project how- tos as well as how-not-to-dos advice, keep watching this blog.
I am a slightly insane mini-addict who prefers smaller scales, designing and making miniatures from all cultures and historical periods prior to the 19th century. I dislike lifeless-looking, picture perfect mini scenes, am bored with Victorian frills but love to do grunge and well-used effects. I'm also just a little bit crazy, and often include little "surprises" in my projects such as an alligator head in a filled soup pot, or a tibia propped up in the back corner of a closet. (Gotta store them somewhere, so why not?) I'm a member of several online mini groups and a proud member of GSOLFOT.
