This is what I have been doing today!
I´ve got this Swedish miniature magazin with the mail a few days ago and I got the tutoral of making shoe shine box from there.
I used balsawood, cut it and polished it for the shoe tree and a stick of a bit from a guitar string and on the top a tiny piece of sculpey.
The shoe brush are made from balsa and black felt fabric, finnaly the boxes of shoe polish was prinded in the magazin, I just cut it out and glued on a tiny piece of wood.
The white box are made of ice cream sticks and the polishing cloth are shaped by glue and water.
I soiled the cloth with a charcoal, so it would looke like its used...
