Months ago after I posted the first barbershop story, I went online looking for 1/6 scale barber clippers. I wasn't able to find any. It never dawned on me to make them. That is, until today. I was starting a book making project, and saw pictures of some barber accessories, whilst I was procrastinating. The first thing that caught my eye was the little brush. I felt I could make that. So I did. Pulled up pictures of some clippers and made Jason, the barber, a set of those, too. I didn't even move out of my chair. Everything I needed was right at hand on my messy, but efficient, new workstation.
They're not perfect, but they will be fine for my stories. I'll probably shine them up a bit with a coat of gloss. They are both made from polymer clay and the bristles are from a small paintbrush.
Just in case you missed the barbershop, here is a picture of Jason and Darius.
Needless to say that elusive book making project is still not done! I wonder what else I will create when I start making books again?
