So, as I said I needed a few days off to start buildig this office and I did take some free time - that has convinced me I could make miniatures as full time pleasure instead of going to work everyday - it is such a waist of time ...;) Anyway, I started with painting all the pieces that are going to be non-removable, so here you have my gothic window - I only painted it with acrylic paints, didn't even sand it first, as this should look like the stone window. Almost the same I did to this big Emporium's fireplace, I painted it with acrylic paints, so that everyone could think it was used some time ago(I tested it on my sister and she wondered why it is soooooo used - guess it works then;) The doors were a bit of work as I wanted them to be one wing door, so I needed to take the hingers from one wing out, glue the wings together, add small boards to strengthen the door, paint it and add a beautiful lock with a key that I bought together with the door and the window. I aged all golden metal trimmings with a bit of black paint and here you can see how the door looks now One thing I don't like about this door is....a smell of the brown paint - it is really stinky and I don't know why, because the rest of the paints don't smell at all!
