1/12 scale toy push along dog

Hi all,

I have been a little quiet lately, it has been the first week of the summer holidays and been doing nothing much which has been very nice thank you ;o)

I have made a couple of minis.  The one I want to share today is a miniature toy push along dog. 

He is made using a pipe cleaner and felt body with leather ears and collar and bead eyes and nose.  The base is made from lollipop sticks and cocktail sticks with press studs for wheels . 

The whole thing is a little over 3cm tall and the wheels really go round.  Hope you like him.

Kitchen utensil rack and utensils for my kitchen

Hi all,

I started off today a little uninspired but then came across a sketch I had made a while ago of a kitchen utensil rack to go into my continental style kitchen. 

I have seen copper tools for sale, but after a misadventure when trying to tarnish some mini copper pots (where I discovered that they were merely copper plated and my tarnishing stripped this leaving an unpleasant silver finish) I decided to have a go at making some for myself using some copper sheet I had bought from the local model shop ages ago.

I hope you like my finished rack and tools.  I am very pleased with it as I made everything from scratch.

Hi all,

Today I started to feel very conscious that I hadn't posted for a while, I have been so busy with work recently, but the good news is only 12 working days till the summer holidays ;o).  I finaly finished this little shelf unit.  It is made using lollipop sticks.  Painted blue with a red roof then white over the top and sanded back.
