Volker, Your method for making the sinks was simple and effective. Did their interior surface get any addition coatings or sanding to smooth them after removing them from the jig?

No, they were completely smooth aside of one "crack" where I put several layers of paper at one time and didn't notice there was a wrinkle. Using another, bigger hemisphere one could even have the outer surface smooth. I didn't take care because it's not visible later on.

So, you used a technique quite like the way fiberglass boats are built to make the wash bowls?  Tissue paper and wood glue instead of fiber mats and resin.  VERY SMART.  Snipping the tissue as you shape it over the form would remove many of the problems with folds in the tissue in the final model. 

I wonder where this technique can led to?

Especially for the very first layer this is quite a good idea for sure.

Chris,

would you mind to post a closeup of the structure's surface to have a direct comparison with the toilet surface?

Cheers,
Volker

That's a nice kitchen. I like all the components and details, especially the top of the table. The wear on it looks perfect.

Nice composition.  The layout makes for a useful work space.  I am waiting for you to add the aroma of baking bread to the diorama Grin Grin.

More 3-D prints or did you build up the kitchen appliances from something else? Either way everything seems quite adequate. -- Russ
