Mystic Attic

Some people wanted to see more pictures of the room box I showed at the county fair. So, here are some pictures. You can click any of the photos to see them bigger.

This is the back of the roombox. The basic room was designed and cut by friends, since this was the Spokane miniature club's 2005 workshop project. As usual, we were free to decorate and fill our room boxes however we wanted, but we were shown some techniques for using paperlay to make stones or bricks. At the workshop, I got the box nailed and glued together, but I did just about everything else later at home.

The stones are made of paperclay. The shingles are made from cardstock, which I cut into individual pieces and painted with various shades of grey. I 'chipped' some of the corners and 'split' some of the shingles so that they would look more like slate. I used "Weather It" on all the wood trim pieces to give them a nice aged look.

The shiny 'donut' stone on the wall to the left of the window is a power jack for the transformer.

Here is the interior.

Here is the interior, with the lights turned on.

If you zoom in, you can see that there are glowing embers in the fireplace too.

More pictures will be posted tomorrow.
