photo's of Pantry

I've posted some photo's again. Somehow you couldn't get them bigger. Hope it works this time so that you can see more of the details. By the way...the beams of the ceiling still need to be aged...

The Pantry

A few weeks ago I went to England to follow a 3 day class from Penny Thomson.

We, I went with 2 friends, went to Belper. Here's the citymap Penny made and which she gave us on the first day.

The workshop took place at this wonderfull old school.

And here you can see the material of which we where going to build the pantry.

Basicly it is the grey cardboard and papermaché. And several painting technics to age/distress the building/scenery.

Here I'm working on the tile floor also made from the grey cardboard. Aged them and then several layers of different kind of paints and it starts to look like this. The floors of everyone doing the class where completely different and aged in it's own way. Here you can allready see a bit of my pantry!

Finally after 3 long days this was the result of Penny's Class. I brought along some of the 1:24th scale miniatures that I've bought at Spring Miniatura. So that I could decorate the pantry a little bit. The cupboard and table where also made during the class. And there came this wonderfull lady who followed Penny's classes and gave us all some cheeses she made, I've put them in the cupboard you can see them in the opening. The class was again wonderfull and we learned new and wonderfull technics which will be very usefull for other project!

And ofcourse the figures where made by Penny, she makes the most wonderfull figures out of papermaché. I also got some other figures of her for another project that I'm working on.

I will post about that some other time.

Let me know what you think of my pantry.

Thanks for looking

Another workshop

On Monday I'm going to England for another lovely workshop by Penny Thomson.
This time we will be makeing a Pantry along with the furniture in it.
Here are some images from Penny's my next post I will be showing pictures of the workshop and my finished Pantry. It will be a 3 days workshop.

You can even see a bit of the garden outside...a perfect place for the little hen I've got from Penny in March. I also collected lot's of 1:24th scale pottery and fruit/vegetables to fill up the room a bit. Can't wait to start with the workshop on tuesday.
