I’m working on a miniature scene set in the mission days of California – featuring Zorro.
I’ve been looking for a not so fiddly way to make wrought iron. The other day, I was using the hot glue gun, and a lightbulb went off (grain of rice LED, of course).
It consists of six pieces drawn in hot glue on parchment paper, allowed to set, then assembled using…hot glue. I got better control with the glue gun set to low heat–less glue, sets faster equals finer lines.
The flat black spray paint helped stiffen it up a bit, and really highlights the glue threads.
First try, high setting on glue gun
