  1. LSOH Placement Test 1

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    This is a dry run of the placement. I will have a better idea once I get Seymour in there. I think I need to turn the Audrey II slightly to give a good view of the head.

  2. LSOH Placement Test 4

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    A view from above. I love that this shop has a glass window in the top.

  4. LSOH New Back Wall

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Now that the repairs are done, here is how it ended up. I still need to dirty the door up a bit with some ashes. It shows brighter in the picture than in RL. The paper is something I found in one of my CL finds. It is "naturally" aged.

  5. LSOH New Rear

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Here is how I replaced the back wall. I decided not to brick. It is heavy now and I am concerned that the structure may not support more weight. This will be on a base, so I will add a step and a couple of trash cans. I may add a nonworking light over the door.

  6. LSOH New Paper

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Here is an interior shot of the doorway repair. I found some really old Millie August wallpaper called "Wild Strawberry." It had yellowed a bit, making it perfect for the setting. I am going to let it dry overnight before cutting the door opening through the paper. I also stained some crown molding that I will add to help set it off.

  7. LSOH Side Bricked

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    I "bricked" the sides as there was nothing I could do with the plywood. I am going to add some black wash running down the sides to age it a bit. The "bricks" are actually a floor tile that I picked up at Home Depot. I still had to glue a lot of individual bricks, but these worked out nice and saved me a ton of time. Unfortunately they weigh a ton and I need to be careful moving this thing around. The tile was a grey color. I ended up covering it with Rust-Oleum American Accents Colonial Red I bought from a store that was going out of business. It took three coats and I burned through about six small chip brushes (the cheap disposable ones).

  8. Audrey In Progress -- Final

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    She is complete and on her way to me. Now I have to get hopping on the shop. The floor goes in today. I have to wait to cut the door and window until after I arrange the plant. It is 9" tall and I am not sure how wide. I will have to wait and see. I also need to find a 5" to 5.5" doll to pass as Seymour (Rick Moranis). Send me any suggestions. I have been searching and haven't found a passable one. It doesn't have to be perfect, but dark hair and glasses are necessary.
  9. Audrey In Progress 2

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    She is almost done. I hope the Shop does her justice.
  10. Shop Lights

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    I found these lights at one of my distributors. I just got lucky that they are already green. I am going to add two to the front and one over the back door.

  11. LSOH New Front

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Here is an updated shot of the storefront. I still need to do a little cleanup, add the window decals, lights and sidewalk. For comparison, the link to the original storefront is HERE. It is finally coming together.

  12. Little Shop Inspiration Picture

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    This was the inspiration for the start of this project. I commissioned the plant to be lighter colors so it stands out in the Shop. The plant will be 9" tall and I am looking for a doll to pass as Seymour in the 5" to 5.5" range.
  13. Audrey II in Progress - Day One

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Anna sent me a picture tonight of her day one progress on the Audrey II. It already looks creepy. I can't wait to get it. It will be the only brightly painted object in the shop, so it will really stand out. She does great work and wants to do more 1:12 scale. She recently created a Nosferatu in a coffin and a couple of other pieces in 1:12. http://www.etsy.com/people/BlueMaiya
  14. Tin Ceiling Installed

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    (Yes I know it is upside down. I am still waiting for the glue to dry.) The ceiling and roof are a bit challenging due to the viewing window. I trimmed the ceiling pieces and installed them. I will probably try another round of Gesso and wiping to help hide the seams in the corners. The box is more than 17" wide, so I couldn't go one piece straight across. So far I like the way it looks.
  15. Tin Ceiling

    From the album Little Shop of Horrors

    Sooo...I was cutting the tin ceiling pieces when it dawned on me: the shop is kind of dreary and the ceiling is BRIGHT white. I thought for a while and came up with a solution. I took gray Gesso and painted a thin coat on the plastic. I then took a dry paper towel and wiped most of it off. It is almost a dry brush method, but it worked to take the shine off.
