Tin from paper

There are some unique Hungarian thing I can't get from a foreign "dollhouse store". (There is no Hungarian dollhouse store at all!). The kettle of Cegléd was an essential element of a Hungarian kitchen, so I had to find a solution. And tadam! Precisely planned paper template, some glue and acrylic paint. I didn't think it would be so pretty!

Below is a detergent cap after some cut and paint. My mother has a bowl like this!

And at last a potatoe-presser. Everybody in my family said I couldn't do it. But I could! From a beer can.

You have such an amazing imagination to be able to work out how to make these special objects.
