An Apothecary Table & Potted Lavender

Recently, I made this apothecary table out of bass and balsa wood. Polymer clay is still my first love, but I thought I might branch out a little...by trying my hand at miniature furniture.

Installation is near completion and then I will 'grout' them with a mixture of acrylic paint and light weight spackle (the fluffy white kind).…
