Paperclay Work Finished

 And some more painting done.


Lidi is not only very talented
but,
she is a great teacher!
I made a muddy mess of painting the paving stones
and had visions of having to dig them all up
and start again,
but no,
Teacher showed me how to fix them!!

Those blue things on the cobblestones are the doors
for the back opening,
they need painting and detailing.

  4. This is why we have great teachers, to fix up all the problems students have.

    Who then go on to be teachers.

  6. Hi Eliana, thankyou!

    Lataina, believe me, I feel really blessed. I truly never thought I could learn this.

    Thanks so much Patty. There's a way to go yet before it's finished.

    Heheh Dianne, no budding teacher here, just one very happy pupil.

    Laura, thankyou! Your comments are always lovely :)

  10. Thanks Terefer and Janne and Robin, it's very encouraging having such lovely comments :)

    Robin, I'm purposely not entering your wonderful give away, I'd hate to deprive someone who does 1/24th scale of such a beautiful little chap but I really love him!

  13. You're doing very well indeed! Yes, Lidi's work is great. I met her when we did a workshop in NZ. I love paperclay too and conducted my first workshop last year. Totally different from Lidi's. Just to show how many different things you can do with paperclay. I have mastered the painting of the bricks and can do it quite fast now. Practice, practice.... ;-)

  15. Hi Marion, thanks for visiting and for your kind comment. I think I need a LOT more practise with painting, I'm slooooow.....

    Good to see you Norma ;) Hope you are settling in well. Being a courtyard, not a lot goes into this structure, this project is more about the building. It's a fab project for learning this technique, covers all the bases kind of thing without being overwhelmingly big for the novice.

  18. Susan, you are doing a really wonderful job with this workshop - I'm seriously jealous, I need to learn paperclay too - I wonder if I can talk Lidi into doing remote classes LOL. It's been months since I've taken time out to look at blogs and I've been seriously missing out on all the fun!

  19. I'm waiting to see a little mini landscaping, or a nice bench to relax on :) And I just found Bev's blog a few minute ago - her work is incredible!

  21. Bev, knowing how talented you are you wouldn't have and problem learning this technique. The paperclay is easy, just time consuming. You already know how to 'age' through your railway interest.

    Hi Norma, lovely to 'see' you! Thanks for peeking and for your encouraging comments. Yesss, Bev does wonderful miniatures doesn't she? Her tatting is to die for! Will look forward to chatting soon!

    Hi Flor, thanks for visiting again :)
