Summer days start, we disconect from many things, and in my case it is literal, I go to the country, where I have no Internet or television, so I turn off everything, even the light of my desk. I stopt doing miniatures for lots of days.
En principio iba a ser un cuarto oscuro en un sótano para revelar fotografías, pero la escalera ha robado mucho espacio y no tenía sitio para colocar todos los elementos necesarios de un laboratorio fotográfico. De modo que he diseñado un espacio pequeñito para labores principalmente, aunque bien puede dedicarse a manualidades o simplemente a huir del mundanal ruido.
But I did not want to leave without saying goodbye and show you my last scene.
In principle, it would be a dark room to develop photographs located at the basement, but the staircase has stolen a lot of space and I do not have enough room to put all the elements of a photo lab. So I designed a small space for sewing work primarily, but it may be used for crafts or just to escape from the madding crowd.
After assembling three MDF boards, I covered the floor with balsa wood, and I've dyed it first in oak and them in ebony, as I did in the Herbarium scene, the result is a beautifull and very dark but warm color.
The staircase is made with foam board, 10mm thick, and covered with wall putty for filling cracks.
On one wall, I put some small strips simulating the steps of a staircase that is supposed to be on the other side of the wall. I have also placed a door, and I covered the wall with balsa wood.
The other wall is covered with a wallpaper that you can find here.
I painted the wood surfaces beige and aged with bitumen.
At the top of the right wall I placed a structure that simulates a sloping ceiling, this space is to hide the light battery.
El pegamento de la imagen es uno de mis favoritos.
I made a shelf welding wire and using polo sticks. For a good paint attachment it is necessary to prime first.
The adhesive of the image is one of my favorites.
I also did a small stair rail by soldering.
I made a lamp with paper, wire, laces....
colored pencils with toothpicks...
the light switch, a cork board with some postcards and bills …
a hanger wall behind the door with a woman purse.
on the shelf there are some fabrics, a sewing boxe, boxes of buttons, books, ornaments …
In the table a dresses pattern book, a sewing machine, a lemon tea, some wool skeins in a paper bag, reading glasses...
A big hug to all and happy summer.
