  1. How to create scale wallpaper?

    Thank Mike - a very kind offer!  I bought some matt photo paper the other day to use to print wallpaper - I noticed a huge difference in the paper used when printing when I did my wagon.  I think that my main issue is that I really don't have a picture in my head of how I want this room to look.  I have painted the inside of the shop already and I'd like to do whatever I'm going to do upstairs as well, before I glue the building together. This is my pinterest page - https://www.pinterest.nz/rebeccareckin/apothecary/ I'm beginning to think that the more plain wall panels as in the latest pictures I've added, would be best.  However I still feel that this man is a very well travelled, well respected and intelligent Apothecary, so it would make sense to have a few really beautiful items in his home.  Apparently Oriental wall paper was quite popular at that time, and I've seen a few very beautiful light blue papers with birds, flowers etc.  So I think I'm going to panel the walls (not quite sure how I'm going to do that as yet - maybe just paint and then create panels using trim) and then have a really beautiful room divider with the wall paper. I have also found this and bought it - will be interesting to see what it creates.... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1Pc-European-Totem-Frame-Curtain-Sling-Cake-Mold-Chocolate-Mould-for-the-Kitchen-Baking-Cake-Tool/32906055719.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.15.67c1c4dfD2OVFk&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_5_10152_10151_10065_10344_10068_10342_10547_10343_10340_10548_10341_10696_10084_5724015_10083_10618_5724315_10307_5724215_5724115_10059_5013715_100031_5725015_10103_5724915_10624_10623_10622_10621_10620_5013815,searchweb201603_1,ppcSwitch_5&algo_expid=1c7732f7-3505-48a5-9bd9-8ac5e327c722-2&algo_pvid=1c7732f7-3505-48a5-9bd9-8ac5e327c722&transAbTest=ae803_2&priceBeautifyAB=0 So, in answer Mike, I would love to find some light blue, maybe Oriental, with birds, branches etc wallpaper that I can easily print at home.  Because he's an Apothecary I also like the idea of flowers, herbs, plants, trees etc - so nature, maybe with an Oriental spin....I don't want much really!

    Yes, I can imagine that.  Well I think I've decided against using wallpaper.  I'll do simple wall panels in either a light cream or grey, keep it fairly simple and unadorned with just a few very beautiful or appropriate (to him) peices of artwork.  I did wonder if maybe I could incorporate a little wallpaper if I make him a divider....

    Thanks Chris....maybe I hadn't had enough caffeine when I read this!!  I think perhaps I have asked before, and received a reply before.  However like before, I read through your answer and it literally went in one eye and straight out the other!   So, basically, you find a pattern - probably in a .jpeg, and open it up in paint.  You re-size it, then copy it until you have a full sheet of pattern.  So if this is how it's done then you could do it with a portion of a wallpaper already existing, or with one single pattern like a fleur de lis?
  4. How exciting!!  Looking forward to seeing what goodies you end up with!

    I like the floors - both wooden and brick too!  Love the colouring!  How did you make the floors?

    Thanks Carrie!  I preferred the first silicon I used even though it took 8 hours to cure, as opposed to this one which only takes an hour.  I don't want to recommend anything until I've found what I consider to be the best.  Certainly the Alumilite was the first stuff I used and is the resin I'm using (which I think is perfect - they do another which cures clear not white).  I totally recommend the resin and the silicon however they don't do large quantities or at least not affordable here in NZ which is why we tried a different brand.  Here's their website...  https://www.alumilite.com/

    WOW!  Loving your bar!  Hubby had an arguement with me about whether it was a miniature or not!  Really love that soft grey you have on the walls - could work.....not a bad idea....

    Loving resin - and it seems to go a long way too.  I can think of so many applications!
