Kilted Crafts – Things The Kilted German Has Made

Welcome to my Marketplace!  This is where I’ll be displaying items that are featured in my Etsy and Zibbet shops.  I work in a variety of mediums, and my creativity spans a variety of subjects.  I paint, sketch, work on illustration, and sew, as well as paint miniatures and make small crooked houses out of various materials.  If you are interested in any of these items, feel free to visit my Zibbet or Etsy shops at the following links:

You can also comment here, or email me at greylikestorms(at)me.com to discuss purchases, if you’d like to skip going through Etsy or Zibbet.  I’m happy to talk with anyone about custom commissions, and would love to answer any questions.

First up, we have these miniature crooked houses.  I first found something similar on the Privateer Press forum, and was so inspired by the idea that I decided to create my own.  Originally these houses were intended to be used in miniature wargaming as terrain pieces on the game board.  However, they also look incredible charming on a mantel place, bookshelf, or windowsill.  I haven’t done any testing with them to see if they are child-proof, so please keep out of reach of children.  They are constructed out of foam core, balsa wood, illustration board, card stock, and acrylic paint.  I love experimenting with colors for the roof tiles, and found to my surprise that the blue was particularly stunning.

I have been enjoying various games like Dungeons and Dragons since high school – I believe that they inspire creativity, free thinking, and allow everyone who participates to work through challenges.  One of the key staples in a role-player’s arsenal is his/her dice bag.  After years of sewing, I decided to try making my own, and am very happy with the design.  The bag has two drawstrings, which means an extra secure closure.  Each bag measures roughly 7×5″, and holds plenty of dice for a long night of gaming with friends.

Art is a hobby that I hope to turn into a career in illustration.  I’ve been experimenting with mediums like ink, acrylic paint, watercolors, and more.  The following are some of my works over the past several months.
