Bathroom fixtures cost more money then I can afford these days, so I finally decided I had to make them myself.

Its nice to have a place to store rolls of toilet paper and bed linens.

I'm rather proud of the sink, I made it using homemade cold porcelain.

Another wow from me. Great job on that sink. I tired one out of polymer clay and well, lets say, it's good for an old workshop scene where clutter would cover it all. Did you hand sculpt or create a mold to work from?

I did hand sculpt it using homemade cold porcelain....1 cup Cornstarch, 1/2 cup white glue (white school glue like Elmers), 1tbls mineral oil or

vegetable oil or olive oil or whatever liquid oil you've got....mix it together and keep it in an air tight situation, it lasts a long time.

It's the closest thing to polymer clay I've found.   But you have to work fast cuz it starts drying as soon as it hits the air and once it's dried whatever you made is rock hard.  

Have you seen these perfect sinks with perfect plumbing showing underneath?    That's the kind of miniature I wish I had...things

that look like the real deal!
