Surfs up – details 323 and 324 July 9th, 2007

Miniature surf board in place

The Surf board is finished, I won’t know, till I can ring my brother again tomorrow, just how close I got to the original…I didn’t think that I was going to be able to do the writing across the middle, I had tried, messed up and had to sand it off and repaint it several times and was ready to give up until a friend lent me a finer pen and suddlenly I was able to fit the words The Menace into the space, it is not real clear but it can be read and I think my brother will be delighted with it.

I have also added a Miniature Transistor Radio in the corner of my daughters photo…Mum didn’t like the radio or any noise makers which is a family story in itself, her grand daughter on the other hand can’t live without music.

I made the radio several years back for another project and then didn’t use it…I used a cube of black rubber for the radio shape which I covered with a piece of soft leather cut the same shape as the real thing would be…the dial is a sequin held on by a pin cut off to the thickness of the radio…The antenna is a small nail.

and After talking to mum I have added a French Stamp to complete the ancestry.

    You work on the miniatures is amazing. I had to pull out a thread card just to be sure of the size. WOW! Wonderful work.

    The surfboard worked out quite nicely in that seam! I love the radio – brings back transistor memories of the 60s. =)
