Hello everyone, my latest project was a commision for Audra, my husband´s hair Stylist, you can follow her on her facebook http://www.facebook.com/Hair-by-Audra-226980357461338/info/?entry_point=page_nav_about_item&tab=page_info
This project consisted of a shadow box for a hair salon with a retro style, with blue and pink colors. It´s very simple, but with great details.
When I make models or dioramas, I love to mix different materials, the usage of them will gives you a realistic effect. One of my favorite materials is paper, scrapbooking paper is great for the walls. For the furniture I used balsa wood, it is so easy to cut, I painted with acrilics and glossy varnish to give that retro shining look.
For the sign, I cut the letters and the squares with my Cricut/ExploreAir to have a very nice and clean cut.
For the manequins head and some parts from the chair, I used Italian clay “Das”, I love to use it, it is so easy to use and you can sand it when it dries.
The coushins for the chair are made with fabric and foam, I added some little pin details to make it more realistic.
I believe perfection is in the details, I love to add little things to make magic, like the cables from the hair dryers, the scissors or the hairspray bottles.
I hope you like this project!
see you soon,
