New Micro Miniature Project 4, French Country Flower Shop, Paperclay






The photo above shows the tiny bit I cut from my sand block to sand the stones and tiles. Then I added gloss to each of the tiles inside the shop with Mod Podge. I rolled the paper clay through my pasta machine to finish the outside of the flower shop, adding small areas as shown. I was so pleased with the cracked natural look that was created by rolling it that I left if for one wall. Then I scratched in a block texture with a tooth pick on the outside before it dried and added more detail with a wet paintbrush after it was a bit drier. I'm really having fun with this project.

  1. Hello
    Thank you for showing these pictures. I have tried paperclay
    too, and I like that material, but
    I could never do anything that small!
    It´s very interesting to
    follow your project and I look
    forward to what´s coming!
