This little reveal was planned for yesterday. But then the new Quart pictures dropped, and the RAPS was put on hold. So before we get more goodies from the set in Spain, I better return to Milton with this one.
It’s often the actual mint tin that determines the design of the shrine. That Altoid Cinnamon tin is sweetly old-fashioned in design, and so thought it fitted a period character best.
This shrine was a spontaneous “tester”, if you want. I had been asked by a fellow fan to make a Thornton shrine “in your trademark vintage style”. She had specific requests for the elements, but when the urge to create came over me, I was too
impatient lazy to look up what she had stipulated. I just wanted to let the creative urge take its path, and crafted away with what was in reach of me on my desk.
Some of the close-ups I took have taken on the quality of a picture in their own right, sepia toned and whimsical. They would even look good in a bigger format imo.
More Thornton love as soon as the other (commissioned) shrine has made it to the recipient.
