Plodding on

continuing to make the rest of my windmills. all 64 have been made, they just need to finish the actual construction now!

it takes time cutting them out, not to mention the stitching together in the first place and then removing the excess tissue from the back but i am pleased with what i have achieved so far.

i have found a way to stiffen them without adding wire to the outside. once they have been constructed i paint the tissue side with a liquid resin, it makes the colours more intense and stiffens them at the same time. will show that later. 


  1. I love your windmills! Gorgeous colours. I hadn't heard of liquid resin. Sounds interesting.

    1. Thanks Catherine, its a resin that is premixed from a model shop for water effects.

  2. Wow! That's a lot of windmills, the final installation is going to look amazing
