    Miniture Bird Houses

    I am sure we all end up with bits not knowing what to do with them. I throw mine into a box just for little projects like this. Little bird houses made yesterday Made with various woods. There is Chestnut, London Plane, Yew, Spalted beech, Oak and Maple. The roofs are Laburnum, Oak and the coloured ones are tulip Wood. The perches are cocktail sticks.
    Paints used on the roofs are 1 and 10 plain wood, 2 Golden interference paint, 3 and 6 Chestnut iridescent paint,4, 5, 7 and 9 Jo Sonja Iridescent paints, 8 Golden Iridescent paint.
    So a good mix of manufacturers paints
