Big Things and Little things

The parchment hinges seem to be an okay fix. The one of the left swings freely. The hinge on the right door came loose at the top. It has been reglued and taped to dry. It will be fine, too.

 While waiting for the glue to dry, I printed out an illustration of potter's tools and made a few. Here they are shown on top of the printout. The box was made from popsicle sticks and stained. The circle at top left with the black blobs is supposed to be a yellow sponge. The blobs are silver scrapers cut from aluminum foil. (Printer cartridge needs to be changed.) I'm going to make some sponges out of Fimo.

If you enlarge the picture, you'll see that the tools are a bit rough. In real life, they look just fine. And glued on the bottom shelf, it will be difficult to see how crude they really are. The tools will be glued in the box. 

Will be heading to Michael's this afternoon to get the materials to make the potter while waiting for the landscaping materials to arrive.
