I'm delighted to announce that the Victorian Seaside Scene that Robin Britton (my Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops colleague) and I have been working hard on for weeks, can now be seen in the August issue of Dolls House & Miniature Scene Magazine.
It was great fun to do...and as with all our projects, we undertook much research so that it could be created as realistically and accurately as possible. On top of all of that, we had to design it in such a way in order to make it easy for the readers of the magazine to create themselves, as this has been presented as a "how to make" project in the August Issue of Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine.
This landscaped base plus fixtures as seen below is now being offered for sale and 50% of proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Campaign.
In our own instantly recognisable "Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop" style, we have created a realistic and highly detailed two-tiered Victorian seaside setting with an element of fun. It incorporates a naturalistic beach, backed by an old and weathered sea wall with upper brick paved promenade edged by a distinctive and authentic Victorian style set of railings. To complete the promenade, there is of course a gas street lamp.
A special feature of our landscaping is the sea battered and aged wooden groyne, along with it's very own seagull!!Our unique seawater in the foreground really adds to the realistic ambience of the whole setting and we couldn't resist adding a little rock pool with it's own starfish!!
Other Components Available To Purchase Separately
The Victorian bathing machine, Punch & Judy and all three of Robin's dolls that were made for this scene are also being offered for sale, but separately and are not part of the charity offer.
