So I was good and decided to wait until the oven was made before finishing the floor so i can work round it.
Made a really rough, ( and I mean really rough!!) oven out of card, foam etc, all glued badly together!! Then out camethe paperclay and yet again I think its something you get better at with experience as could i get the thickness right.......no!! Tried to roll it out like a pastry case over the oven shape but it kept sticking and falling apart!! Tried talc, etc but it still stuck, maybe its the heat?
So did it in bits, then tried etching in the brick shapes, where are my long cutters when I need them, had to use a ruler, so not too good at getting the imprints wanted but I can etch them out further when its dry. So dont look too closely, it has to dry, then be sanded, its abit bumpy!! then it will begin to look like the oven its supposed to be. Cut out a whole and lined with card and paperclay to make a little oven for the pies. Going to put in a shelf .
Too hot to do any more today, so may paint the roof tomorrow. Off to put it in the shop, so I can judge the rest of the floor
No dolls yet, where that flippin postman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
