A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:
The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:
Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.
I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Lights, Fabrics and Bubbles
The bathing lady I started last week has been finished by the addition of some foamy bubbles.
After the glue holding the lady in place was dry I used some cheap clear beads to partly fill the remaining space in the tub, reducing the amount of Scenic Water needed to fill it up. The melted Scenic Water was then poured over the beads. Before the water set, it was injected with suds made by putting a small amount of water and some detergent in a jar and shaking, then draining the water. Scenic Water is a yellowish colour, so the resulting bubbles have a slight dirty yellow tinge.
Next door in the main bedroom, the bed has been finished off by adding a brown silk throw accross the foot of the bed.
A green silk curtain now separates the bedroom from the doorway. I still don't like the arrangement of the furniture in this room.
Downstairs, the Dining room table has been set ready for a feast.
For this time period, a crisp white tablecloth would probably have been more appropriate, but with the pale, neutral walls this room was really lacking personallity and it really needs the strong colours of the blue silk table cloth.
At the back of the Dining room, the blinds and curtains have been added to the windows.
A ceiling rose has been added to the ceiling, ready to hang a chandelier from. My first two attempts at making a chandelier have failed spectacularly, but keep watching this space.
The lights for the Rec room have been much more cooperative. The shades were made from white polymer clay which was then covered in green Gallery Glass faux leadlighting paint. These were then joined into a single unit with jewellery findings and a toothpick painted gold. All that remains is to hang the fitting over the pool table.
The Rec Room windows have been treated with blinds and curtains and the window seats now each have a cushion
So now it's back to the Dining room chandelier in the hope that my third attempt will acutally succeed.
