My current project; Harry Potter-esque Hat Shop!




"The Howling Hat Shoppe" is what's been keeping me occupied the last week or so.
I got the Houseworks Street of Shops to make a little mini Diagon Alley.
The one I've been working on is the the small, one window shop.
I bought several of Kat's (Kat the Hat Lady) hats. Some I got to decorate myself. I love that :)
I was going to put them in the "Imperium Draconis" dollhouse on the 2nd floor but, I thought it would be much more fun to do a dollhouse dedicated to just selling the hats.
I'm in the process of figuring out how to age the copper over the window, and even if I want to attempt. it but, I really think it needs the aging.
Here of some pics of the process.

  2. The hat shop is such a good idea. I can't wait to see more of it as well as the rest of your mini Diagon Alley!

    Here's a way to simulate patina copper using paint:
