"Miniature Artist Michael Reynolds is introducing his new Art Nouveau workshop.  Inspired by the Jules Lavirotte structure in Paris, this beautiful little miniature structure was a year in the making.  The beautiful front door was directly inspired by the original Lavirotte structure in Paris & the technically challenging "corner" window was inspired by Nouveau structures found in Barcelona Spain.  Open the leaded glass front door & step onto an exotic burl wood parquet floor with a wrap around balustrade supported with fanciful bronze finished nouveau filigree & end with a beautiful coy fish newel post.  After climbing 3 corner stairs your imagined inhabitants step onto a black walnut floor surrounded by walls of elaborate reverse arched wainscoting.  An intricate carved frieze is enhanced with a beautiful deep plume handmade linen paper decorated with a whimsical vine design in gold.  Above is a gold patina patterned ceiling featuring a beautiful mullioned sky light.  The structure opens along the right side of the structure allowing easy access for the collector to fill this little gem with miniature curiosities assembled by each student.  The completed structure is 22"W x 14"D x 16"T/20" at the highest point of the front facade.  As you create your very own copy of this building you will be instructed in the following techniques:

  • Distressed/aged Sponged exterior walls
  • 2 Step stippled stone
  • Burl Wood veneer application
  • Faux mahogany wood finish
  • Leaded glass door & surround
