Lately I've been enamel crazy.  I've always liked vintage enamel things, like kitchen implements and storage tins etc, and I even own a few retro and actual antique enamel things.  But the last couple of weeks I've been crazy about making enamel miniatures, any free moment in between making my custom orders and doing other things.  In fact, I've been losing sleep over obsessively making enamel things, and so now I'm exhaustified and won't post commentary because I'm too tired to think.  Just pictures mostly.

These would be large kitchen or workshop funnels in a 1:12 setting.  I needed and wanted a cobalt blue enamel funnel for my polar hut and couldn't find one that satisfied me anywhere, so I ended up just making lots of them to sell (at my Etsy).  I love making them look chipped and rusted.

Pans etc.

Cups, big like for soup or  hot chocolate

Mugs made of brass bullet casings

Mug and cup are friends

I love the distressing! These look perfectly real, as always.

Oh wow! Amazing as usual! I think the mugs are the best, but they're all great!

(Now I wish enamelled stuff of that sort wasn't just that wee bit too late for my period...)

Beautiful work.

I found this gallery of a dollshouse festival - have you seen it yet?
