I thought the hot glue chandelier was too modern and too feminine. I made four others, with slightly differing designs, but wasn’t happy.
So this one was born…
1:12 scale, about 4" high, it’s made of a mix of materials. There’s cotton lace, copper chain, bright aluminum wire, jewelry findings, glass beads, and paper clay for the candles.
Pix along the way:
the base; lace hand stitched with gross black thread and stiffened with glue, wires and beads and chain
candleholders made of screw necklace clasps, beads, bead cap. the sticky-uppy wires will support the candles.
and unified with flat black paint. It’s really all black, the light is hitting it oddly.
I’m debating electrifying it. I have LED string lights and a plastic straw to use for candles. But the scene is Zorro sneaking around, so I think the candles have all been blown out.
