I bought a birdcages workshop from Jane Harrop with a great instruction how to age them.
Left on the picture you see a small part of the 1:12th scale birdcage I also made.
Later I finished a 1:12th scale project that I started last year. An anchor buoy and a glass globe with an ivy growing in it on a macrame rope. I had these in my bedroom hanging down from the ceiling. That was about 40 years ago.
When these were finished I made another globe with a growing ivy in it in half scale. The globe has a diameter of 1 centimetre.
