Micro Ladies Room, 1:144 scale
This is a small sculpted room I made in micro 1:144 scale a few years ago. I was taking some photos of it to try out a new macro lens I bought for my camera. This room is a Victorian dressing room with two young ladies looking at fabrics in front of the window. I was inspired by an old etching. The interior of the box and ladies, dressing table, curtains, walls, fireplace, sculpures etc. were all sculpted out of cernit. I printed the tapestry and carpet. It was fun to make the curtains and dresser because cernit drapes so well. I painted over the cernit walls to make them look like plaster. I added the penny to give you a better idea of this project's size. I have really enjoyed micro miniatures and made my version of the chocolat shop from the movie Chocolat and a decorating room and many other rooms which you can see on my web site under My Projects if you are interested in micros, there is a fabulous yahoo group you can join.
I have just added another photo on top with a ruler. I used my close up camera feature and macro lens but I'm still getting parts out of focus, I should try reading my camera and lens manuals.....!
