First we worked on the porch. Here are the beginnings of my porch --with my 2 new cats checking it out. (The cats are made by www.literatureinminiature.co.uk).
The flooring is popsicle sticks cut and glued and then painted with a whitewash:
I made nails using the technique described by Otterine in this post Milo Valley Farm - siding, part 3
(except that I did not add rust, as I feared that I would add too much rust.)
And here is the house facade (we're not building the house,but maybe I can put a shallow box behind it) with the siding added and painted.
And here you can start to see what it will look like with the posts and the railing (although it still needs the roof):
I love the little paw reaching up to catch something in the air (pretend there is a butterfly going by).
The grey tabby was custom made by www.literatureinminiature.co.uk from photos I sent of my cat Audrey. Here are some close-up photos.
Have a great weekend!
