Miniature magical blue set with potions, scrolls and wooden Zodiac Wheel


Miniature magical blue set with potions, scrolls and wooden Zodiac Wheel

This is a set of miniatures for dollhouse miniatures settings and scenes.
I called it a “Blue-silver set” as blue is a main colour of this set, with elements of silver, black and some gold accents.
Set contains:
-Two scrolls
-Zodiac wheel
-Two potions

To give you idea how big or how small 🙂 it is, please take a look at the Zodiac Wheel measurements below:
5.5 cm x 5.5 cm x 2.7cm (2.16 inch x 2.16 inch x 1.06 inch)

Scrolls were painted in five or six layers (I don’t remember exactly) of few shades of blue paints, mixed with silver and pearl medium with black accents. Everything is nicely blended by using special blending medium for painters. These scrolls are embellished with painted wooden handles, ribbons and some metal charms, then shaped.

Zodiac Wheel Wheel is made out of wood, laser cut and engraved. Painted in blue; convex parts are treated with special shiny gold medium (hot stamp foil).
Wheel depicts all twelve zodiac signs with Sun in the middle. I hope it is noticeable on the photographs, but every symbol, every letter on the Zodiac Wheel is convex (look at the gold parts).

Two bootle potions are also in blue-silver theme. Round blue potion is truly charming in hand as it has interesting texture, it is actually soft in touch…very surprising. And colours, few shades of blue, gradient like, nicely blended in the form of round potion. Second potion is a plastic 3D print, designed by Greg and printed at our house, then painted in silver paint, embellished with nice blue glass bead, which has a crystal look like, but it is not.

This is a stack of 16 leather + paper cover books in 1:12 scale.

I carefully pay attention to the details. Spines, covers and text blocks are made slowly and with care, my books look very realistic.

Books have detailed spines, some have raised bands. Everything carefully shaped, some of them are painted. Books are aged with inks and paints so all stacks looks like pile of old, worn out books. Books are covered with leathers and faux leathers from Ireland, Poland, UK and Italy, most of them covered with satin varnish for protection. Around the middle of the stack I attached paper scroll.

The whole construction 😉 stands on its own. It is carefully balanced.
