A Putz Christmas Village
Well, it's not exactly Christmas time, but I was really in the mood to make a tiny village of glitter houses. I was inspired by some breathtakingly beautiful houses at the Chicago International Show and I wanted to try to make my own.
During my search for inspiration on the web, I came across SilverCrow Creations, which has some really interesting products. I haven't ordered from them, but I'm sure that some of the products are perfect for minis — how about some black German glass glitter or bat's blood ink for the Halloween enthusiasts? I found some interesting tools that I had never heard about in the tools section of the website.
I think that if I make another glitter house, I will add a hole in the back side to insert a tiny light bulb. I think it would be fun to make a "ceramic" looking village. I've heard of a lacquer that can be applied over acrylic paints to give a ceramic look. Does anyone know the name of the product?
