Coming down the chimney...

No, it's not the chimney sweep......Look who's coming down the chimney!!!

The chimney is silver with patina on the bricks and the snowy top polished.... and then Santa is half way down!

The chimney is three dimensional as you can see from these photos but to be honest, the whole piece didn't turn out quite I had hoped. I wanted this to be a pop-up scene so all you saw at the beginning was the chimney, then you pull on a cord at the bottom and up came the Santa.....But I could quite get the tracking right to keep the legs in it turned into a "stuck" in the chimney scene instead!

Yes, one of those experiments that wasn't completely successful but maybe moved me in the direction and next time I'll crack it! Keep looking for pop-ups...maybe there'll be one in the future. Have any of you made one before?

I love the patina on the bricks, it looks so realistic.
