Google Update

I have been slowly plugging away at my library and I have a few updates that are worth showing I think.

First I now have 3 completed bookcases:

Bookcase from Hirst Arts casting and wood wrapped in thin card.

The books of different sizes and the scrolls add a bit of variety I think.  Again, simple wood wrapped in card for the books.  The scrolls are paper strips tightly rolled with a tiny dab of superglue to bond them.  The crystal ball is a Hirst Arts bit.

Combined with a few other pieces, the library now looks a bit more library-ish.

The tables and benches are again Hirst Arts bits.  The map is actually a fantasy map I found online and shrunk down and printed off.  It is Alithan by the artist Luned.

The frame got a bit more distressed than I intended but a bit of drybrushing should hopefully help.  It obviously will be mounted on the wall once the library floors and walls are painted.

Of course the action shot ties it all together.

A second update for today, but hopefully no less inspirational.  I know I have been inspired watching this project come together piece by piece and I am excited to see this piece finished.

    Wow! Amazing attention to detail on the books!

    They look really good. How long does it take you to do each book case? I always get put off doing scenery with the thought that it’s taking up time that I could have used to paint miniatures instead.

      Doing one book would be less than a minute, but only mass produced. I measure and cut craft sticks, cut strips of paper, and then custom trim each book and the paper while gluing them. By the time the batch is done they are ready for paint. Once the batch is done on goes the lettering. A bookshelf takes about an hour of work including placing and gluing the books.
