I started straight off with the kitchen sink. Figured it’d be easier. Well, it was till I got to the insertion of the faucet. The hole was soo much smaller I had to really ream it out. The paint wasn’t quite dried but I wasn’t too concerned because keeping in theme with a beat up used kitchen, the porcelain sink would be beat up too. I added a little brown staining around the drain and the back stop. Looks pretty filthy.
I tried out Fimo today too. That was an adventure. I really have no idea how to use this stuff and have seen instructions on the internet and that’s about it. I did mange to get my gas oven low enough to cook some “tomatoes” and a small plant vase. I had looked into plants in small scale and they were so expensive I figured I’d have to make my own. So I bought some plastic plants for fish aquariums - much cheaper. After making my Fimo plant vase, I stuck a few pieces in the pot. I think it looks pretty cute sitting in the kitchen window.
|First attempt with Fimo...not bad really.|

Working on the tatami, which I guess is the floor of the next room that we are working on, I opened the bag and it was full of dried mold. The tatami was pretty covered with it. So I had to use these sheets and not the leftover from the other tatami construction because I was afraid there would be some color differences. Even if the construction was pretty basic, these damn things are time consuming and believe it or not, back-breaking. And with all that mold...it was not a pleasure.
