SORRY, THIS CLASS IS SOLD OUT.
The next in our series of 1/4 scale shops is this darling chocolate shoppe.
This shop features a lovely facade with fluted colums, engraved window frames and darling cut out sign. The front is hinged and opens to reveal a darling shop interior. The floors are white "marble". There is a wonderful copper ceiling. The back counter, candy counter, back wall shelf and two tiered display units are all our original designs and are scaled down versions of the pieces we created for our 1/12 scale candy shop. The counter is filled with tiny hand made fimo chocolates. There are chocolate truffle trees, plates of chocolates and lots of tiny chocolate boxes displayed throughout the shop. The back working counter is marble topped and has a lovely copper cash register, and an amazing little candy scale. We have designed and printed both of these items on our 3D printer and they are just charming! There is a set of four antique chocolate prints on one wall, and an engraved fretwork framed mirror on the opposite wall.
The shop is lit with led lights, and is self contained... running off a coin cell battery and on/off switch which is cleverly hidden in the ceiling.
The kit includes everything shown in the photo. You will receive materials for the structure, and all fixtures, flooring, wainscotting, wallpaper, copper ceiling, and lighting. You will receive the fimo, tools and molds needed to make the tiny chocolates, as well as all of the artwork and materials for the display trays, truffle trees and candy boxes. The framed artwork and mirror are also included.
As always, an extensive tutorial with lots of photos and complete written instructions will be provided online along with a link to a printer friendly pdf version which can be saved to your computer or printed out if desired.
Students will need to provide basic tools such as Xacto, paint brushes, ruler, etc. In addition, students will need to provide their own paints and glues for this project, as we are no longer able to ship those types of items. Exact color brands and numbers will be provided.
This class is limited in size and registration will close when the class is full. All spaces are offered on a first come, first served basis. Credit card customers, please note that due to increased banking security, I am no longer able to wait to process your credit card until the shipment date. We are now required to use an online service that obtains authorization for your purchase at the time you place your order. We never see your credit card information, and have no ability to delay the processing. We hate this probably as much as you do, but it was that or no more credit cards, so we choose the "lesser evil".
Shipment of this kit is scheduled for October 8.
