Thanks Guys,

Here you can see the floor. I found a natural wood flooring online. I printed it on photo paper and glued it in place. I also placed a couple shelve in to see how it may look..

As with any resin part I washed them thoroughly
with a degreaser dish soap, dried them and primed with a spray primer. I then painted the with acrylic paint. I then installed them into the store. I did cut one shelf down so it would fit the wall better.
I went online and found a company that sells antique can and packaging labels. They take very nice pictures of the labels and post them online to show the items they have for sale. I downloaded a bunch and resized them and made labels for my can goods. My cans are made from dowels. The cans i made are just a little big or just maybe family size. The next size smaller dowel looked to small for me.
I did come across some packages that i did not make and they are on the top 2 shelves. They are from a doll house supplier that i bought a while back. I am still trying to get the shelves fully stocked so the store can open...

The cans look terrific. I'll bet that took some time but knowing you, you have an app for that!

Ty,

Looking real good. If you run out of labels I have plenty.

Cheers,
Bob

Thanks Guys,
It does take a while to make these parts.

Last week I needed some different type bottles.
So i went to my mini lathe. I took Dowels and created for types of bottles and a paint can.

I harden the dowel with ca glue to make it easier to turn down without splintering. I also coat the finished piece ca while turning and rub it off with a smooth cloth to smooth it out.

Ty,

Those look really good. Now you have to get busy and cast a bunch of each in resin.

Great looking stuff
