My First Scrubby Holder Project
Browsing ebay I found a lady bug scrubby holder for a reasonable price (less than $10). Most ones I see aren't ones I want for a project, but this one was for some adorable lady bug band. I got the band via a mini friend that passed away. A small group of us from our club were visiting and she offered for us to take some items. She knew it wouldn't be long for her. I will always treasure this band in her memory. They are made with a combo of wood and metal.
When the scrubby arrived I removed the scrubby from inside. This was either too big or the holder too small. Either way, it didn't matter to me for what I had plans for the holder. I then washed it to remove anything on the surface.
The band were on wood disks and I knew that is what held them up. I decided to only use paint and landscaping product to blend them together. Another miniaturist used plaster of paris, I have used paper mache in other projects, but for this, I felt I couldn't do that and keep the disks. I didn't want to figure out getting them to stand on their own. Or try to embed the disks into another product.
I decided roughly where to put the band and took a photo.
I painted the bottom green. I matched this green to the painted disks. In hindsight I wish I had painted the bottom brown like dirt and including the disks. Then I painted the sides and top blue. I added a few clouds as well.
