I had some left over pieces of wood from a prototype of one of my Door Series Bookends (classes being offered at my miniature shop) so I used them to create the small space that would be the exterior of the house, door, and front yard of Mr. and Mrs. Killjoy. I used paint and static grass to create the yard and sidewalk leading up to their front door:
|Had to glue my plastic tree down first so I could cover it's white "winter" base with paint and grass.|
|Painting the sidewalk|
|That sign didn't win Mr. and Mrs. Killjoy any friends|
|Dripped some yellow, clear, and "frost" color nail polish on a plastic sheet|
|Some looked better than others...|
|Once they were dry...|
|...I could slide my fingernail under them and...|
|...they'd pop right off to be glued where ever I wanted them.|

|The bubbles really show now|
Up close (back under "normal" indoor lighting again) you begin to see the minor issues that are highlighted in natural sunlight and these issues were present when I first poured the products into their respective bird baths:
|EnviroTex Pour-On in Painted Basin|
None of the "waters" have cracked or shrunk/pulled away from the edges (yet?). Another update will be posted as more time passes...
