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.

Let there be snow!!!

I know the weather has been amazing but I have been wanting to do a scene using snow for a while but can't afford the expensive products you can buy. So I have been playing around with a few things to see if I can make my own and I did! 
I used salt and a dollop of pva glue. If you paint it onto a surface it will dry like newly fallen snow. Or you can have chunks of snow like I have done here. Also just over halfway through the drying  process you can mould it too. I am so impressed as the salt shimmers as ice and snow does it looks real. Can't wait to start my chilly creation!
