this post was supposed to be about the folding windows, but i forgot to take proper pics of them i was having too much fun playing with the fruits -_-"
i made the berries a while back, never got round to taking pics of them. i made the plastic packaging too :) but just to state, they will not be for sale 'as-is', i plan to use them for my own works.
my chrysnbon table and chairs finally arrived! they weren't -too- difficult to put together, i gesso'd these but since i'm more than a little 'commitment-shy', i haven't decided on a colour yet :( my fave colours are pretty dull (black, blue, brown...funeral colours my grandma likes to say), so i figure, since i have to use the display setting to take pics of my works for sale, it's better to keep it simple, i.e. white. i could really learn to like it though....:)
and cos i was rushing off to meet bf for dinner, i didn't think too much about how i should take pics, thus the haphazard display XD
ahhh found a pic of the folding windows closed! there's a gap at both ends cos i haven't yet put in the side pieces....i actually don't know if i'm all that pleased with it or if i need to give it another go with different materials. i used basswood strips and a random piece of plastic i had lying around. the hinges, i only had 4, and i totally did not want to paint over them (they were brass) but in my overly tired and fed-up state, i painted over them because they were uglied up by the generous amounts of abuse and superglue i subjected upon them. i must have spent the last 2 out of 3 days trying to get the *#*()@*$&(# hinges to stay on. crud.
anyway. *deep calming breaths haha*
so the plums. i made 2 types, when i was younger i remember them being called 'sugar plums'.
and then there's the rest of the fruit i made....last seen in the supermarket post and then some.
why so many pics of the same thing? ionos. cos i haven't been blogging and feel like i should make up for that with more pics HA!
in my mind, they were purplier(sic) than these i found in the kitchen. bleh. i'll try again another time :)
