This year I made my husband a little butcher and charuterie shop window in a shadowbox frame. Before his life as a winemaker, Mr. Pixie was a butcher and he continues to smoke and dry his own meats and make his own sausage.
I made all of the meat from polymer clay. The window is a transparancy sheet. The 'shelving' is narrow strips cut from an old hardcover.
The outside measurement of the frame is around 7.5" x 5.8" and the inside depth is around .75"... it's pretty tight!
Considering that 'realism' in my miniature work isn't usually a priority, I was fairly thrilled with how this turned out and I think he liked it too :)
I thinks it's totally fabulous :)ReplyDelete
