4TH BOOTH...This is the 4th open air booth in my Renaissance Fair project.

 

DATA...This is a basic curio shoppe...scratch built on ceiling tile...size (8" x 5")...again shown from concept drawing to complete finish...The Reaper figure is just to show the scale of the finished piece.

 

Again...I hope you like this little piece...I also hope that you are not getting bored with these pieces (there are 6 more varied pieces to go).

That is one of those charming pieces that is so rich in details that something new is discovered with each visit. The modeling, painting & your LOVELY base are all BEAUTIFULLY WELL DONE!

The Lady Proprietor is a WONDERFUL accompaniment to the Curio Shop...brushwork & palette are GORGEOUS. My own version of that miniature is Fast Flo, whose Home for Wayward Girls is famous through out my little corner of (sur)reality.

Lovely work as usual Catdancer. You must have a lot of fun looking for and building all those little knick knacks filling your shops.

Speaking of which, where did you find that African looking mask on the left side of the booth, and the two figurines on the top shelf? They must be tiny.

Also the heraldic banner to the left of the booth, is that an image cut from paper, cause it has the appearance of being cloth, and if so I'm wondering how that was done.

 

Last question. I don't recognize that Repear mini, well done on her by the way, I quite like it and wonder if you might still have the stock number for her.

Not bored at all! I love the creativity, the atmosphere and the sense of place. You've done a great job adapting beads and tiny doodads into props in these wonderful booths.

 

I also appreciate that you've been showing your construction diagrams. I enjoy seeing how people make things and make them work, and these might help anyone sparked by your creations who might be interested in trying their own hand at miniature architecture.

Hi Darsc;

 

To answer your questions...The African looking mask was a pair of copper earrings for pierced ears that I picked up at a local mall shop in a store that sold Africa type of items...the 2 figures are HO scale railroad figures that I painted as statues (one as marble and the other as bronze)...all banners and signs on all these Ren Fair signs are paper (some on standard paper and some on cloth texture paper)...The Reaper figure is the madam (Townfolk Set #02655)......As always, thanks for your comment(s) and feedback.

Thanks Paul. Are you printing these banners on the cloth paper yourself?

I have done a couple of self painted banners as well as art prints (paintings/drawings)...but 97% are computer copy of assorted original works.

Paul the coolest thing I learned from you was to keep an eye out for cool beads.  Now mind you I am a big, tough, generally angry looking guy, so when I go into a bead store run by a dainty elderly woman and she asks me if I need help (aka what are you doing in my store you big dummy) the whole situation is fairly comical.

 

Now I need to look at earrings too, bah why am I buying earrings and beads! And my wife jokes about me being  something of a "fairy".

 

Seriously though I can't comment on all your posts and updates, I love your stuff!  It is inspirational and clever, you and Malefactus are some of my favorite victims for "idea theft".

Bah, just say you are buying stuff for your wife, and they'll become real helpful!

 

I also love the stuff that Paul, Malefactus, and you post. Great inspirational pieces and amazing little worlds.

Hi spencerjohn;

 

May I suggest that before you go to retail stores/outlets...check out the thrift shops/second hand stores and 99 cent stores in your area...most of these have bins for costume jewelry and beads. I have found great bargains at these type of outlets for jewelry items, bead items and floral items...Just a suggestion!

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
       
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.

      Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I.  He had a very bent sword, so I swapped it with one from the Bones III weapon sprue.
