Still working my way through the contents of Slug & Jiggers but having fun on the way. These are the potion boxes I made using my fabulous table saw. I have stained and sanded them then added a highlight paint wash to match the colour of Morticia Adams' Love Potions with complimentary taster!!
Then I started to tackle the brown paper parcels inspired by Jenn Hatt of Looking Glass Miniatures. These are simply bits of balsa off cuts covered in baking/parchment paper. Then I printed of some packaging strips and labels.
These items are for the display table in the shop. I wanted to make sure it had both a front and side view. The boxed syringe is a a fabulous piece by the ever so talented and creative Erika Van Horn with its tiny bottle of blood. I can't remember where I got the tall chemist's bottle but the wonderfully tiny but perfectly shaped brass funnel is by Tiny Ter Miniatures.
The leaning towers of parcels!!
The table in place and how it will be seen as the door panel opens. Another job jobbed!
Oh and I have also filled the boxes above the downstairs windows with dragon's eggs in a bed of green moss. These are actually Japanese crackers but seemed the perfect size and colour!
I am waiting for a parcel from the US at the moment that I really need to arrive soon as I need it to finish of the shop area.
Plus I am putting off a return to making potion bottles! If the parcel doesn't arrive tomorrow it will be potions and window dressing time permitting.
