GRACE'S PROJECTS

Dedicated to the Glory of God

Things Made for Customers by Jim or Grace Shaw

Things Grace & Jim Made for Customers
Grace always likes a challenge. She is willing to take custom orders from her customers.
If something isn't already available, be sure to discuss the possibility of having something made to order. If Grace can't do it, or Jim can't do it, she will find someone who can.

The Sleepers Project 2016

top of the round Sleepers Project
This is the top of the round Sleepers Project made for a customer based on the Woody Allen movie. It contains four rooms.

Orgasmatron room
This is the Orgasmatron room of the Sleepers Project. The little cubby area is where the Orgasmatron fits.

The "Orgasmatron" by Jim
The "Orgasmatron"
It was inspired by an actual elevator in the Sculptured House in Colorado that was featured in the Woody Allen movie, The Sleepers. Of course, Woody decided that it would be a device used to experience sexual satisfaction (since in the future, actual human contact was discouraged and every home had its own orgasmatron instead)

additional rooms
There are two additional rooms like this in the Sleepers Project  for the customer to furnish.

The Dippy Bird
The dippy bird turned into the miniature from hell! Grace had to do him over several times. First the legs weren't strong enough and had to be done over. Then the flask was too short necked. The head exploded when Grace tried to remove it from the flask to add a straw. She bought straws that turned out to be too large. The feet had to be done over when they weren't heavy enough to hold the bird upright. They had to be redone three times to get them right. The hat broke and had to be redone. The bottom of the flask dropped out and helped get blue food coloring all over Grace, her kitchen and her dress. It took five moppings to get the food coloring off the floor! The feather lost all it's nice feathery appearance when painted. Grace has decided that no one can every pay her enough to make another dippy bird!

I did a series of Michael's Hutches for a customer.

Black Nativities

Black Nativities Black Nativities Black Nativities
I called this the Black Nativities because the hutch is painted black. I had previously painted many of the figures used in this project.
Blue Animals Blue Animals Blue Animals Blue Animals
Called this the Blue Animals for the blue background. Again, many of the figures were painted by me though some were from elsewhere.
Twelve Days of Christmas Twelve Days of Christmas Twelve Days of Christmas Twelve Days of Christmas
This one is the Twelve Days of Christmas. I painted the charms for the 12 days but the houses were from the customer.
Red Laser Cut Red Laser Cut Red Laser Cut Red Laser Cut
This one is the Red Laser Cut. I didn't even know that scenes this small could be made but they are exquisite.
Pink Dolls Hutch Top Pink Dolls Hutch Pink Dolls Hutch Bottom Pink Dolls Hutch
This Pink Dolls hutch the customer only supplied a couple of dolls. I supplied the rest. Many of these can be purchased on my Painted Minis page.

Bird Hutch 2 It's a little hard to tell from the photos in Bird Hutch 2, (see first and last) but the parakeets are on the outside of the glass on the doors. Bird Hutch 2
The last hutch I completed for the customer, I call Blue Beach Hutch.

More things for Customers 2017
Unknown Military Man, After Unknown artis by G I Shaw 2017
Unknown Military Man, After Unknown Artist
We've been trying to find this Unknown Military Man for close to a year. There have been several different people looking for the painting and no one had been able to find it, so I decided to try and paint something that looked as much like it as I could make it look.
White Tudor Baby House
White Tudor Baby House
My customer saw the Tudor Baby House that I did for myself and she wanted me to furnish her white painted Baby House in the Tudor style too. She didn't want wallpaper in hers so I printed paneling for hers. Well, sometimes mistakes turn out good. I forgot to change the ink in my printer when I printed the paneling out. It came out this nice light color which went very well with her off white painted Baby House cabinet. While I used the same furniture kits from SDK Miniatures, I tried to arrange the rooms differently. I also used different paintings and rugs. Many of the accessories are different, too.
