I have finished messing about with the LED lighting at last. I received the warm light strips I wanted from Small World Products. I chose three strips with 6 lights and three with 3 lights plus one for over the false door. These replaced the daylight ones that were too bright.
Thanks to my helpful followers I have discovered that these lights can be toned down by adding a coat or two of acrylic paint and I have done this with all the strips.
I didn't want the lights to be too strong simply a way of highlighting the shelves and shedding a mysterious glow. I left a daylight strip behind the goblin to give the impression of a different room behind the door.
I have filled the last three corner crates with various flasks I have collected by Nikki Rowe, Julie Lawton and PixieDust Miniatures but I am not sure if this is the right place for them.
What do you think? Should I continue with the glass theme of all the other shelves or do these flasks provide an interesting break from the other pieces?
I have also purchased these gorgeous mortar and pestles from an extremely talented and helpful miniaturist Dave Williams of Harvington Miniatures. I asked Dave if he would make me a tiny mortar and pestle for my travelling potion case for display in the window of S&J and he instantly obliged. How kind is that!? There are lots of very interesting pieces on the website so please pop over and have a browse.
I finished off the plans for Honeydukes today and I hope I have thought of everything. It was a bit more complicated than I thought so I hope all me measurements are correct. If not I can always turn it into a wonky house!
