Thought I would invite you back into the minature witch room that I have slowly been working on. I can't believe it has been about a month now. Not much more has been completed. I am still working on the fireplace as you can see. I put some paper clay over some wood, lined out the bricks and then let dry.
I used this really cool stamp that I had found a while back at a craft store. It has three different textures that resemble concrete. I thought it would work great with the brick. I'm not very good at mixing paint, so I just threw a bunch of different colors together as you can see below.
Next, I washed it with gray to fill in the grout lines. Below is the brick fiished. Oh, I guess I still need to dirty it up abit so that it looks like it has been used. Also added another piece of board on the bottom so I can add more stone under the mantel. My husband cut the mantel for me out of an old branch that he found down at the river. I thought it looked pretty cool. I still need to make a stone floor for inside the fireplace. I had one made but it ended up being too small so I need to start again.
Finally, below is a pic of a cobble stone effect that I tried to do out of paper clay. Wasn't having very much luck with the stones wanting to stay on. Might have to take this off and try again, but this is the look that I am going for.
Sorry, didn't have much to show this time. Hope to have more for the next update!! I am also planning on posting a wip soon on the dolls that I have been working on too!
