Fey & Fables

We had another Make Project over at the All Things Mini forum and this time, the theme was "Little Shop of ...".  My friend Cia was the person I was making the project for and since she has a kinship with fey, I decided to make her a shop for the faery folk.  The basic structure was made from sheet styrofoam (to keep it lightweight), and the brick/stones were made from Creative Paperclay.  The plaster work was done with stucco compound.  All stone/brick work and plaster was colored with watercolors.  The shop shelves are filled with various magickal herbs and oils, candles, scrolls of parchment, and books.  It took over two weeks to get to PA from Alaska and we were both biting our nails hoping it wasn't lost in the mail.  But it arrived today and in pretty good shape, thank goodness!
