So folks, I am assured by the technical people around me that this should all work if I have followed their instructions ........hopefully, below you'll see the super duper video (with cheery appropriate music, so put your speakers on) which will show you a little about the making of the seaside and the story behind it. We very much hope you'll enjoy it. By the way - it is now also on the side bar for posterity...look RIGHT
It does, we think reflect, the ethos of our Nostalgia in Miniature Workshops - we aim for properly researched realism which is do-able, for both experienced and new miniature makers, using as far as possible readily available and 'ordinary' materials. If we can add a little humour along the way sometimes - that's a bonus.
We hope that some of you will get the August issue of the magazine, create your own seaside, or perhaps use some of the elements in your own projects.
Although we also work individually as KT Miniatures and Coombe Crafts, it's a very happy partnership.
So - story behind the headlines, as the critics would say.........well, Celia was obsessed by groynes and bathing machines..... we discussed, debated and researched beaches until we were dreaming about sand and waves and flotsam and jetsom....and just don't mention lamp posts and sea to me......we both got excited about making the sea wall nice and green/slimey though.....

Thank you for looking.
