  8. I mix small batches at a time using disposable plastic cups (ie, condiment containers).  
  9. I’ve used this product (Envirotex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Epoxy for Sealing Bottlecaps 4 oz) for water in the ponds and fishbowls I’ve made https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0058DVYHC/?coliid=I35103D7GAGB2P&colid=UHIHH79IDJDN&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it The problem is removing bubbles, although you may not care about that in a water cooler. For fish, I made them from polymer clay. I mixed clay colors to get orange and white fish and used translucent clay in the mix to get filmy fins.  
  10. 1:24 scale Poldark manor house arrived!

    So fun  
  11. Commode chair

    From the album A Hermitage

    For my birthday Kelly (Kellyannmo) sent me this cute chair kit with one of her custom handmade pop up cards. Besides being a talented miniaturist, Kelly designs and makes these custom cards. You can find them in her Etsy shop FatCatDesigns.   Of course, I had to change the chair from a plant chair to a commode chair for the Hermitage. I'd originally planned to convert the French Cottage chair but it was too tall for the space. The chamber pot (which I had on the washstand shelf) fits perfectly under this chair and it’s lid fits perfectly through the hole in the seat.

  15. Making 1:24 scale wallpaper

    I use TouchDraw on my iPad, which works a lot like the (old) Adobe Illustrator. I use different papers for different effects, but generally I use a good quality light card stock. I let it sit for 24 hours and then spray it with a mat sealer, letting it sit another 24 hours to dry before using the paper. I always make several more sheets than I think I will need because something always goes wrong at some point.  It’s a slow process, but I’ve been happy with the results and have not experienced any fading.
