Welcome to the Castle Hill web site
So it's looking to be a great birthday week for me!! This morning I received a parcel from Katheryn Nelson in the USA. Paper copies of the American Miniaturist which contains an article (6 pages!) about my 1:12 Gypsey Vardo. BUT, wait, there's more! She also sent me a terrific book on Dutch canal houses and I so want to build and furnish one of these beautiful houses in scale - awsome! AND THEN THERE's MORE........ I have seen these cutters and drooled over them. They are so amazing. You can cut all sorts of materials and always get the cut perfectly upright. The best thing is that it has a guide for angles. How cool is that! Love getting tools as gifts! Thank you thank you thank you Kathy!
The tree armature was done with wire over a block of wood and then all covered with Paperclay.
Once the tree was painted it looked alot better.
Some more painted low lights and leaves and we have a tree.
I love distressed and weathered items and this was such a fun workshop with Sandy Bernstein - very talented lady!
