Today I put in a full eight hours of work on my diorama project. First my attention was directed towards the second floor apartment. The floor, columns and ceiling were painted in white and trim and wallpaper added to the kitchen walls.
Here is a quick photo update on the post office, laundromat and third floor bedroom of building one.
In the laundromat, the floor was painted, the walls covered with light green poster paper and the Soap Center machines were mounted. The post office floor was painted and the side wall covered in blue poster paper. The bedroom received a bed constructed of foam board and linen sewn by me. Then the floors were painted like the ground floor but I added a bit more detail by drawing in the planks and nails with a black ink pen. Tomorrow the floors will be painted over with Mod Podge to give a slight glossy finish.
Sometime last week it appears that while checking and approving comments posted to the site, a few got lost in cyberspace. If you do not see your comment posted please feel free to resubmit as I so love to hear from all of you.
Thanks for your support and understanding.
For the past couple weeks I have worked on detailing the post office and here are the results:
It was great fun creating those small packages and a tedious exercise cutting those small labels and postcards. There are a few pieces still to be fitted in place on the main structure such as the tape dispenser, but I am leaving that for last.
Next area I focused on was the kitchen upstairs the post office.
Finally I moved over to the Diner in the next building and created the stands for the booth seating. Some hot glue is visible on the center booth, but that will be hidden when the final trim is added. The table legs still have to be constructed.
See you next time.
