Week 4: Fairy Doors

Doors in Progress

I love all things fantasy and sci fi and make belief. The first time I saw little fairy door decorations I was intrigued. I’ve made a few over the last few years but this year I promised myself I would do a real run of them. I sorted and mixed up my scraps to give myself some play clay for these and started with the simplest forms.

Cured Fairy Doors

After cutting out basic shapes from layers of mud clay and marbled brown “wood” I made little scrap clay pebbles for edges. I added simple decoration beams and fake brass (I do love Premo! antique gold) hardware for the doors and tucked bits of moss, flowers and toadstools on the edges.

The next run will have a few more details but these guys were done simply so I could write up the steps for sharing as a tutorial in a couple of weeks. I may add a little antiquing and varnish to the relevant parts of these.
