Before the beautiful artwork by Nichola Battilana using the new Half Scale Arch Front Room Box (and 2 more new half-scale items), a new sale! ALL Bead Caps are 25% off now through Monday night, June 13th! Like the Mini Cake Stand Kit and Raspberry Tulip Beads shown at right. And that new 16mm Brass Fancy Bead Cap or Dollhouse Vase shown in the left photo would be perfect for a little vase in that room box Nichola used…
Design Team Member Nichola Battilana has created a lovely, lovely creation called Venus’ Grotto.
I bet you’re wondering exactly how big is this pretty little shrine? Well I’ll tell you. Nichola used the new Half Scale Arch Front Room Box and it is 1/2″ scale (1:24). That is a whopping 5″ wide (with a 1″ apron at the base), 6″ tall including the facade (about 4-3/4″ tall inside the “room”) and 2″ deep. Mind boggling, isn’t it how Nichola can create such masterpieces that seem to get smaller and smaller?
Now if you wanted the same size to work with, but perhaps a bit deeper, and with a square front instead of arched, we have you covered on that! The new Half Scale Window Room Box has the same dimensions as the Half Scale Arch Front Room Box except it is 3 inches deep instead of 2. AND! What’s really cool about this particular room box is that you can even add the new Half Scale Bay Window to it. Both boxes are so versatile, especially if you have a small space or wall to display it on.
Nichola embellished the top of the grotto by making fancy embellishments out of Creative Paperclay and the Architectural Flourishes Mold. The lovely Venus is standing upon a new White Resin Column Capital (upside-down, how clever) and if you look behind her, there are sweet flowers Nichola made that are resting on White Shelf Brackets. Venus’ Grotto is finished off quite nicely with Asparagus Fern draped over the arch, and smatterings of 1/2 Inch Pale Pink Paper Roses here and there.
