To develop my model making skills, I have been enjoying constructing miniature props from a range of different materials, including a plaster plant pot with paper leaves, a leather suitcase fashioned from an old wallet, a knife made from an aluminium can, a bench with layers of peeling paint and a tiny version of my bedroom door, made using Obeche wood.  In the process of making these, I started to photograph them in real-world environments, which I found to be a much more exciting way of demonstrating the scale of these miniature projects.
