My second shot at candelabra-making, this one hasn't been painted yet, perhaps I'll leave it raw, just age it a little with chemical I used to use on stained glass, if I can find out what it is.
You can see what the candle holders are - brass tacks. Brad will file off the spikes with his trusty Dremel, then I can put candles on it. I think this one is a little neater, I used a finer wire to wrap around the soldering.
Also, welcome to Carolina and Anna, good to see you here as I learn more about miniatures and the making of them. I really want to find a particular skill that I enjoy and that I can 'perfect' if that is possible. Can only do that by trying a few different things and practice makes perfect.
Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you like my new look, I needed a change from black. Here you can share my miniature endeavours, perhaps be inspired by some of my photographs taken in France and of 'real world' treasures that can be made in miniature. My love of parterre-style gardens and study of horticulture made my decision for the theme of my little shop an easy one. I just hope I can successfully interpret my ideas in 1/12th scale!
