Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

A wizards desk

While I await paint drying I thought i'd up date you on the old bit of furniture from my last post. As I said then the two top and one of the bottom draws are missing but for how I am envisioning the finished article it doesn't matter, as I will use them like pigeon holes to hold maps and scrolls. 
As a desk the mirror didn't work so I sawed off the bits that held it into place and sanded the whole thing down. My fingers still hurt. It took hours!
I have painted it blue and intend varnishing then spraying over with glitter varnish.
