Smaller Than a Matchstick

This is going to be a short post. This little castle toy is so tiny!  I made it from a kit which I've had in my stash for a few years.
I added the base, and painted the toy using washes of color, so that the wood grain showed through in places. I always add a heavy amount of dirt and aging to toys. I like them to look like they've been played with!


  1. Dear Eliza,
    What a cute toy !!! You did a great job aging the toy.
    Greetings Dorien

  2. HallonEliza,

    Groeten Xandra

  3. Hello Eliza,
    That is just sick! It really is very detailed for such a small piece. The aged finish is beautiful and really adds tot he charm of it.
    Big hug,

  4. It's so tiny and so cute.
