Models and Miniatures
This diorama was created as an entry for the 2011 NC State Fair. The floor and bar structure were built of 1/4" foam core, painted with acrylic in the case of the floor and bar top, and covered with red vinyl for the bar side. The "drinking glasses" were cut from the tips of eyeliner pencil caps, while the plates and cake tray are made of buttons and beads. The stools were built of bottle caps, with a wooden dowel center support, and the sign on the bar is made of matchsticks and a poster board scrap with hand lettering. The pizza tray is the lid from a juice can, with a pizza of felt scraps, and the pies are made of bottle caps filled with beads for the fruit filing and a felt crust. This entry won First Place in the Handicrafts and Hobbies/Miniatures category.
