Trying something new

Hi All

right all the minis are now painted and ready to decorate,

I started on the piano first, I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like in my mind, but now I had to put it into practise, on the top,
 I decided to start with pages of music, which I aged with tea, I then drew musical instruments and leaves on it,
 I started with the small harp and drew the others around it, this is the first time I had ever done anything like this, and it took me a long time to do, inside the lid, I first drew a design on paper, when I was happy with it, I cut it out and used it as a template, for the base of the piano, I found a picture of some piano keys, cut them out and aged again with tea, I also added strings using gold wire.
I painted gold trim around the edges.

I still have a bit more to finish this, but I am pleased with the result so far,

what do you think
