Fearless Leader: hold up ... good time to chat amongst yourselves
because I got the searchies

your eggs???
frogger70301: Yeah, that is what I want to do with the angel I'm
working on mow.

ladytex49: teach is back...
dbluwitch26: ooooooo now that's teenie
frogger70301: Hey, throw some toys on the floor and it'll almost look
like my house. Size and all!
ladytex49: How were those chairs made?
Fearless Leader: These are plastic
Fearless Leader: store bought
Fearless Leader: and the reason why I got them was to gage the scale
of things I'm going to make with woodsies and fabric and glue
Fearless Leader: no harm in having a "pattern" to work from for scale
ladytex49: that is true...and a good idea as well..
sylsnovelties: Right.
Fearless Leader: now with a roof on this
Fearless Leader: if you're new to the smaller scales these cheap
plastic furniture is a great beginning
Fearless Leader: you can pepper this scene with mini stuff that is
right for this scale
sylsnovelties: Darn, my niece just dropped in and needs help with her
homework, so i have to go.
sylsnovelties: I hope to be back later. Bye all! thanks for what I got
to see.
dbluwitch26: bye syl
Fearless Leader: ciao syl
ladytex49: byeeeeee
Fearless Leader: now, are you ready to go smaller?
seblack991234: Bye
dbluwitch26: than this
ladytex49: what is that?
Fearless Leader: A south african claymate
Fearless Leader: thought my saying
Fearless Leader: blow your skirt up
Fearless Leader: was so funny
Fearless Leader: she made this wee fairy
Fearless Leader: with her skirt being blown up
ladytex49: it is soo sweet...
Fearless Leader: but that isn't her smallest
Fearless Leader: dig this
Fearless Leader: african mommy with her baby
Fearless Leader: a basket on her head
dbluwitch26: how fantastic
Fearless Leader: but that's not her smallest
Fearless Leader: an angel
dbluwitch26: that's amazing
Fearless Leader: now look at this dresser top with these micro minis
on it and don't it look real?
dbluwitch26: she does phenomenal work on such a micro scale
seblack991234: Yes, great!
Fearless Leader: mix your scales
dbluwitch26: i think she uses less clay in those than i brush off the
Fearless Leader: for in our lives our scales are mixed
Fearless Leader: we have full size things
Fearless Leader: we have our accessories and toys and they are in
different scales
Fearless Leader: with you mix scales like this
Fearless Leader: this is a mini scene
Fearless Leader: a lamp
Fearless Leader: a couple of table top knick knacks
Fearless Leader: soft lighting and deep shadows,
Fearless Leader: that's how our lives are
Fearless Leader: often room boxes are light up like a sales department
Fearless Leader: which they often are
Fearless Leader: but I think it makes things less intimate
Fearless Leader: and fake looking
Fearless Leader: we don't live in a flood lit room
Fearless Leader: we have spots of light
Fearless Leader: puddles of light
Fearless Leader: shadows in the corners
Fearless Leader: this is how I feel we should think of our mini scenes
because really
Fearless Leader: you can get away with less clay, less minis, more
effect by working with light and shadow and mixing scales
Fearless Leader: a couple of well placed items, little bit of lighting
to draw the eye where you want it to go
seblack991234: You sure are changing my thoughts on lighting things
from now on. Thanks!
Fearless Leader: if someone comes with a flash light to see into the
Fearless Leader: then ask them do they want the "Sales Floor" lighting
Fearless Leader: if not, light it like you would a movie set
Fearless Leader: set your mood with moonlight coming in a window
Fearless Leader: through venetian blinds
Fearless Leader: falling on a sleeping figure
Fearless Leader: just like real life
