Petite Cafe Model

Blogging is something that is new to me. WordPress is a fairly easy program to use for a beginner so I did not mind reading some of the basic tutorials. I still have a long way to go though.

Anyways, just to get started..I am currently working on building a miniature scale model of a petite cafe. It is my first project so it has taken a lot of trial and error and I still think there is lots of room for improvement. The process is fun and sometimes scary. The base model is made out of balsa wood which is very easy to cut and paint. If you want a wood that is easier to cut shapes such as circles try basswood instead. Foam PVC is fairly easy to work with but not as nice a finish as the balsa in my opinion. The colors used were cornflower blue and pale yellow (standard $1.00 bottles of acrylic paint at your local Micheal’s) they are awesome acrylics to use and so inexpensive!

I have finished the base and am working on adding some miniature accessories however I am not quite sure what to add!

  1. I was wondering how you make your little food bags? I do beadwork and would like to make some of these bags for special beads that I make and sell. I would greatly appreciate your help! Thanks so much!
