Whenever I get stressed out and need to calm my nerves, I resort to assembling tiny little miniatures in jars. One might expect these builds to induce stress, but they have the opposite effect for me. They completely consume all my attention leaving not much thought for any other worldly problems.
All of the miniatures were assembled inside the bottles with aid of a long needle, tweezers, and a little crazy glue and can not be removed without breaking them first. (They are larger than the neck of the jars) Everything was carved from basswood and most of the lettering was painted with a pin.
I've posted miniatures here before. http://www.halloweenforum.com/hallo...n-can-you-fit-tiny-jar.html?highlight=icyuod2
With the somewhat recent passing of my Grandfather, I found myself resorting to old tricks.
It's much more productive than stressing myself out.
Anyhoo.......... Happy Halloween.
Thank you very much guys I appreciate the kind words. I usually end up giving them away to friends and family StanFam3. (Which I find as rewarding as the process) I make them to relax and never give much thought to what I might end up doing with them. The jars are 6 for a $1 and the items inside are made with scraps. I never have more than a few cents into each. They usually sit on a self collecting dust till somebody shows an interest, which is usually enough to prompt me into sending them home with said party. That being said, I have made a couple on request.
