been working on more mini tins. It's quite the process.
I have to prep the tins for painting. The bottoms
have to be wrapped and taped off, so I can prime and
paint the lids.
Then I print out the decals for the tins
(one for the lid and two more inside), cut them out and
stick them in place. Each decal then receives two coats
of clear coating.
Meanwhile... I pour the duck/goose
molds and let them set for two days.
When the molds are done, I remove the
ducks, sand down the edges and super glue the two halves
together. Then it's time to paint them like little ducks
Then I assemble the mini books. I cut
out the pages, staple them together and then peel and
stick the instruction decals inside.
Finally, I make all the clay bits and
pieces for the game and bake them in the oven. When they
come out, I detail them with paint and stickers. This is
how I turn little white sacks turn into bags of duck
feed and give the itsy bitsy little books their front
the most involved of all the steps and takes the most
time. Some game pieces have magnets glued onto them to
hold them to the metal game board.
Duck & goose books, feed bags, pet
carriers and hay bails
Hours and hours of time go into
detailing every single one. I like to work on them on
rainy days or while I watch Big Bang Theory on TV or
sometimes just between things.
