Thanks for visiting my blog.

Het zou leuk zijn wanneer je een berichtje achterlaat. :-)
I would appreciate a little message. :-)

Hierbij wil ik Petra bedanken want dankzij haar geweldige site,, ben ik met de bouw van mijn poppenhuis begonnen.

Thanks to Petra. Without her nice site,, I would never been started with my doll house.

Ik probeer de dingen die ik maak zo goed mogelijk te omschrijven maar er kunnen soms typefoutjes in de tekst staan dus controleer van te voren even of het allemaal klopt.

The thing I create I put on my blog. Although I try to make no mistakes it's possible that something went wrong so please check before you make a copy.

I'm still in paper pottery .....

It's still not perfect but it's allowed to stay in the doll house when that's ready. The bowl is perfect but the jug needs some improvement. 

The copy gel and the copy of the roses are beneath a sheet of wet kitchen paper.

How to work with copy gel you can read in an older post. Now I glued the copy gel to the paper jug and bowl with that same copy gel. When it's dried well, I put nail polish on the jug and bowl.

As you can see the bowl is perfect. To avoid seeing the ugly bottom of the jug, I glued the jug into the bowl so it's hidden.

On these small items you see every mistake you make and when you make a picture with your nose almost in the bowl you even get more critical.

Because of the nice weather in the Netherlands I did try to make a copper kettle from paper also. I think I should practice more with the paper.

I glued two of these bowls together with wood glue. I made two smaller rolls of paper. One for the lid and one for the spout.

I didn't use the met 54 but the Hembrol met 12.

From paper I cut two small pieces to fix the handle of the kettle. On top of the lid I put a small bead. The color of the bead doesn't matter because you'll paint the whole kettle copper.

For the handle I used copper binding wire that's used by florists. And a bead. this bead I painted white.

Here you can see my weakness. The handle is a bit longer on the right side. The spout needs some work also. So to be continued. It so much fun to make these little things. You don't need much material and working space. Only lots of sanding paper and PATIENCE.

Enjoy your week and play with paper !!!
