Hi, friends! I am all better now! Hooray!!
I have a news to share with you today…
This is what’s left of it.
I ripped everything apart and put the buildings in boxes. It was sort of impulsive, and wigged my family out like I was going crazy or something, but I just had to do some Spring cleaning! XD
Don’t worry, I’m still very much in love with Sylvanian Families. I was just tired of the same view that had been my room for over a year. Plus, the town was taking way too much space in my room. 😉
So I decided to keep only 3 IKEA tables and tucked away the rest. I want to rebuild a gigantic town when I have my own SF room some day, until then, these 3 tables will have to do!
Right now, I’m finishing up cleaning up in the rest of my house, while I plan the landscape of the new land for my SFs. I’m thinking since I like making dioramas more than anything, I can make a scenery, and move on to the next when I’m tired of it.
Anyways, some of you might be wondering what happened to my seaside restaurant, so here is how far I got with it.
I repainted the furniture and some of the wall decorations with Tamiya paint.
Tamiya paint is really good when you paint slick surfaces like plastics. The color sticks and won’t come off. In fact, you’ll have a very hard time cleaning up your brushes or your hands unless you use high alcohol content remover. I recommend antiseptic from the drug store, as it is so cheap. But anyway, this characteristic of Tamiya paint will help you achieve a good coat on your surface without clogging the details. If you decide to look for these special paints, go to the stores that sell miniature models and train dioramas etc.
Well, I think that’s enough for the paint talk. As for the completion of the restaurant, I cannot give you the estimate date. I totally lost interest in it, so I’m dropping it until my passion returns. lol Oooh, this is why I have so many projects going on unfinished….but alas, I swore to myself that I will not do anything I don’t 100% want to do with my hobby so that I keep it enjoyable. 😉
Hopefully next time I post, I’ll have more exciting photos of my new scenery….hmmm, should I keep calling it Humpty Town? Maybe….well, maybe I’ll just consider that I’m making parts of Humpty Town or something…. Chao!
