Mystic Path has products for Sale...and more!

This past weekend I was able to play around with my miniatures. 

A forum friend (Thanks Barb!!) told me how to use empty capsules and resin to make bottles/potions.  This was the first time I had worked with either so it was a definite trial and error process, but I'm happy with the results.  Not shown are a bunch of rejects (overfills and other oops).  I created the labels in Paint Shop Pro and shrunk them down when I printed them.  This is a series of bath oil blends.  I think I'm going to be busy with bottle making for a while. HAHA! 

I also took a few hours and quickly whipped together a distressed workbench that I'm now pondering on what to do with it.  Originally I had thought about putting together a Jack-O-Lantern in progress scene, but then I started playing around and made some sweet potatoes and regular potatoes.  Now I'm thinking a Autumn harvest scene.  Gosh, I don't know.  I really don't need another project, but is there ever a time when we mini lovers have just one project going at a time? I'm thinking not.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the workbench.  I haven't really done much furniture building before so I'm really pleased with the outcome!

Well that is all for now.  Remember if you want to see the pictures bigger, just click on them. 

Oh, and before I forget, the forum that I belong to is fairly new and everyone is so wonderful on there.  You'll find some AMAZING talent on there.  Hopefully the owner won't mind me posting this.  :-)  Hey Pam!! I'm asking forgiveness just in case.  LOL  Here is a link to it. http://meca1.com/forum/index.php

Till later!


  1. The work bench looks great and so do the potion bottles. I've never worked with resin, either. Is it difficult?

  2. Awesome Dale!
    I have never worked much with resin either, the finished bottles are perfect. I think we all have more than one project going, you just need to listen to the muse :)


  3. De and Victoria, than you both so much for the kind words.

    De, resin really isn't difficult to work with, but it takes some patience and lots of stirring. And some stirring...and stirring. Did I mention stirring? HAHA Can be fun and isn't horribly expensive to purchase. I got mine from Michaels with one of the 40% off coupons. WOrth playing with I think.

    Victoria, my Muse sits on my shoulder and is constantly giving me ideas. If I don't write them down I'm lost and never remember them.

  4. I loved the bottles and the workbench!

  5. Eliana and Choupavril, thank you both for the nice comments!

  6. I think you should roll with the autumn harvest idea Dale! I think that gorgeous bench would be perfect for that :)

  7. I am so happy to see you working in miniatures again! You do such great work. Love the new additions!

    Hope I can get this posted!! Fingers crossed!!

  8. Tara, I'm following the harvest idea and I'll hopefully have pics to share tonight in a blog update.

    Thanks Helen. More soon.
