Today I finished the wallpapering in all the rooms.
Heres some pics, the walls and roof all need tacking into place so excuse the gaps around the sides, its just wedged in at the mo to see the look of the rooms.
I stuck the 2 floors together with the seperating wall between the living /parlour room and the 'Meat preperation room' which Mrs Lovett had adapted under Sweeney's trap door.
Left to do now is the skirting board in the parlour room which I cant do properly uintil the walls are all put permanently into place so I can see where the floor line meets the skirting properly.
I then have more tearing of paper, splattering of 'blood' in the meat room, the trap door to mark out in the attic room, and some stained glass window for the dividing door.
Not too much really, all little things, then the real fun of dressing begins!!
Oh before that Ive decided to tile the back wall of the Meat Pie Shop below, and put in dado rail. the tiling will all be done with cut up cereal boxes, painted in shades of cream and green to go on the back wall. Now that could take a while!
But its getting there. I need to tile the wall while i have better access to it then John can glue and tack all the walls into place so its safe.
My razor set came today which I will modify by adding real bristles to the brush. The jug and bowl was way to big. Why do people list things as 1 12th scale when its so much bigger! Still Ill fins a place for it on a wooden box or crate somewhere in the room so it wont be wasted until I find the perfect size set. The lamp came and although a little chunkier than I wanted till 'do!'
Dear Julie has so kindly offered to make me Perellis arm in my chest, so it will be professionally done which Im thrilled to bits about. So now I have to set about finishing the decoration of the actual chest and Im all set!
Please remember all the rooms are meant to be looking this dingy and grubby, she was a poor Victorian and although she'll have some decent furniture in her parlour etc, her house /shop was in a state of disrepair as her business was not doing so good............ until those gents come by for a 'shave' of course and she can start improving the taste of her pies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
