I have finally painted the bricks after four years; I had finished sculpting the brickwork right before I had my son. The walls are parchment -- warmer than the natural color of paper clay. The brick borders around the windows are now rusty red. I am not sure how I feel about the color scheme yet. I was so used to the white.
This is a house in our neighborhood that inspired the colors.

I have been away from mini-making for a long time. I was sick since last November, and had to undergo surgery which kept me home for six weeks this summer. I ended up buying way too many miniatures on eBay -- will share photos when I can.
One of my most favorite finds was the working grandfather clock kit by Arrow Handicraft Corp. The kit was from circa 1975, and the clockwork is still working after 40 years.
The glue and the stain was obviously dry, but the rest of the kit was intact. I had so much fun building the kit!
I love watching the pendulum swing ... so mesmerizing!
