A Steam Punk Cracking Easter

Cracking Easter - Mama's away, time to play.

It is always hard for someone who has been doing miniatures for so long to think of something new to do for a miniature Easter. So I cleverly put together two or three little projects to do, hidden in this Cracking Easter scene. These are in the April Issue. The kitchen is in my work-in-progress Steam Punk house.

To help me get over a Miniaturist Block with this Beaconsfield house I decided to complete it room by room and the kitchen is the first completed room. Now I am working on the bathroom. It has to have a copper bath and a Victorian Steam Cabinet at least.

Well the owner can have a steam clean but the bath is not plumbed up yet! Still to come in this room is a basin and the piping around the walls.

The steam coming from the copper pipe (not seen) is teased out wadding (my favorite 'smoke'). Next is a wash basin. Watch this space. The bath, by the way, is made from cardboard and copper spray paint.

  1. Fantastic Easter scene. Very clever cardboard copper bath too. Love that teal colour on the walls. Looking forward to seeing the finished stream punk home – i love that genre, anything goes!
