Has it been a year?
This will be a long post then....
The doorkeeper's chamber is slowly paper-clay'ed & painted, with more secret doors added.
Here the wall sections are not fixed in place yet, and I have had many tries at arranging them with the help of blue tape. Part of the issue was the view available from my proposed doorway, which required me moving the bookcase panel to the other side, else no books could've been seen.
Painting the fireplace panel & nothing worked. Garish bricks, yellow stone.....it will wait for another day when I feel optimistic.
Here are a couple shots of the room with the removable door panel & all the other panels propped up. My round tower is certainly off to a wonky start!
So, to ease my frustration & renew the pleasures, a day of my life spent rolling scrolls, making books and creating stacks of documents & relics. My only struggle with this project was that I kept thinking every scrap of paper I had was 'the good one' and so I jealousy hoarded all the good ones to use in the more prominent & visible spots and soon had nothing for the 'supporting roles'
But once in place, all the little troubles seem so benign.
Oh there's much more to the saga- the leaded windows, the mirrored corner that I hope will hide the wiring.....but for today, we'll call it a success. Tomorrow, we'll try to do better.
