The Rooftops

The Reindeer and Rooftops

The Reindeer were recovered at a flea market, and were then reinforced, repainted and glittered. The Rooftops were drawn in perspective for Donegal Square's entrance, so that they would fit into the windows. They were painted on cut-out cardboard, and coated in white glitter for the snow. The trees behind the houses are separate pieces, created the same way.
