Although I have been busy since the start of the year its been really productive…
I have been going flat out since January making stock and commissions, and this process of making new things for orders and making more of my own parts for my stock has enabled me to expand my range of products, many of which had their debut at the recent Miniatura Fair (and sold out there too!)
This gardener’s potting bench has to be my favourite showcase of new pieces – all of the plant pots, seed trays, crates and watering cans are printed. I’ll add some pictures of the pieces in progress on the printer soon, as this sold within minutes of the show openeing and I now need to make more!
Its the baskets and crates of bread and pies that really add the wow factor to this Bakery truck – a combination of 3D prints and Fimo! (This truck sold at the show, but I have another in to dress – and it will be in the website shop soon.)
Its great to have the Torcheres back in stock in both colour options, and its even better to have the new cherub columns to add to the range – although not electric they look fantastic in the same room as the torcheres and chandeliers. The Cherub columns were developed from an order for statues to go on the roof of an orangery, but I thought they would make great indoor ornaments with the right paint job! The figures are different from the left and right of the torcheres – being front facing so can be used singly and are sold as singles not pairs.
I’ll take some pictures as I am printing the next batch so they can be seen in the raw – and I can then discuss further the process these new pieces go through to end up as stock.
One of the other consequences of being so busy is that I now have TWO 3D printers producing parts and models – which means I have twice as much to process – no wonder I am busy LOL
