Likely leading to more of same
I’ve deferred the soft furnishings for the moment in favour of the odd bit of small/major works.
So far it’s a window, high up – drying and setting in place.
Having added bits of tape here and there to protect certain areas, I cut through the wall and recessed the window a little so that it sticks out fractionally on the outer wall.
The window is the round-topped mullion from Romney Miniatures with added splayed internal reveals, a little like in some of the very early medieval windows, and with a plain rounded top above the frame. Hopefully the reveals will give a little more light and provide a larger area for shadow from the leads in the window. I decided on the oblong acetate for the glass being plainer and less distracting than the other choices to hand.
Just waiting for the whole thing to dry off and will paint all of the inside of the window white, ‘stone’ frame included, to give a painted plaster look.
Quite pleased with the result. It adds a little reality and also a greater sense of height to the Hall. Looking that bit more ‘the thing’.
