By Intrinsic Designs (Cathy Heery) | Nutty Tree: Another carving out of clay for a mould and then mass produce it for the markets. I had a terrible time with latex, (it all went lumpy and you have to do 20 coats) so I ordered some polyeurathane to make the moulds. You pour it over the "master" into a box ...much easier!. It's expensive stuff, but hopefully its worth it!
These basewood buildings, displayed at Martha's home in Maine, are painted to look old and weathered. Birch twigs make door and window frames, and the church even has birch doorknobs. Three houses and the church are shingled with pinecone scales, while the rear house has a pine-needle roof. The ground is covered with moss and balsam sprigs; a little path, made from pink granite pebbles, rambles through the village.
