Handmines

I recently decided that it would be interesting to make some Handmines, from The Magician’s Apprentice episode of Doctor Who.

I started with some rubber dishwashing gloves, stuffed them with fiberfill, applied multiple coats of Rust-Oleum® American Accents® Stone Spray, and will be giving it an eye.

Gold & Pearls

Hopefully, the pearls will stay on. Every other time I’ve attached the pearls, my grandson would come along & take them off again!

I’ve also added gold paint to the sides. I know that there’s not supposed to be gold where there are gems & more pearls, but I thought it would be a good filler. 🙂

Still to be added: gems, braided trim & a bit more paint (both black for the edges & gold).

Prop Box / Faux Book

I purchased a blank, wooden hinged box from a local craft store with the intent of making a faux box. When I saw photos from the Doctor Who Expo (I think), I was intrigued by this box/book but am unsure as to what it is from. This photo was taken at a table with other goodies. Since the scene it was used in was so dark, I am very glad these images surfaced.

The book belongs to Ashildr (Lady Me) and is on a book or music stand in her manor. I found it 7:42 minutes into “The Woman Who Lived” episode.

So far, I have painted the fake book pages on the edge and covered it in black leather (I used black because I couldn’t find brown scraps in the correct sizes). My next step will be to adhere the pearls that create the cross. I also still need to paint the edges to match the leather.
