Fireplace screen


Here is my latest creation. It is a 1:12 scale fireplace screen. I found a wonderful photo of this fire screen and just new I had to make it in miniature. It is oil paint on wood. I had an order for something that required me to set up and learn how to use my lathe duplicator. I had been putting that off way too long:) Now I was able to use it for this project!

  10. The painting is delightful! That mum picked the perfect spot to keep her brood warm ;-)
    An order or commission is a great stimulator for learning a new skill or figuring something out. It looks like you have mastered the duplicator ;-)
