About a year ago, I made a mini typewriter using popsicle sticks.
I was really on a plan to make a miniature house, but was to lazy to do it. When I found myself scrolling into vintage typewriters, I had an urge to make a mini version of it.
The source of inspiration was Governors Land typewriter, an imitation to Gourland typewriter, made only for display.
I only had a scissor (for paper use) to cut the popsicle sticks, so it had crude edges. If I were to do it again, I might use a quality cutter and a sandpaper to improve its roughness.
I hand-painted it with acrylic paint then sprayed with a glossy acrylic spray. Maybe it looked better with matte?
The photoshoot was done with a DIY setup using a wide watercolor paper and a daylight LED bulb.
Unlike those who can work on tiny details, tiny crafts is hard for me.
But I do like this mini typewriter. I plan to recreate it soon with better materials and hopefully a not-so-rough output.
A Beautiful Mess
