Default Mouse mayhem

I have had a major mouse-related disaster in Windfell Chambers.... the blighters have wrecked Puck's Potions, chewed away every single one of my real tiny corks on the bottles lining the shelves, and just generally caused havoc. Iím glad Iíve got photos in the album, as I will have to redo it... all.

They ate the toes off my elelephant's foot broom stand in Esoterica, too. Heartbreaking.
So.. if anyone knows where I can get loads of tiny corks minus the bottles, Iíd be very grateful.
Also some cheap mousetraps

Oh no! How frustrating! I definitely think you should fix your mouse problem before doing all the work fixing your minis. But canít help you find the mouse traps. Or the corks.

Maybe you could try a belt punch or a sharpened metal tube to make more corks from a cork tile.

Yes, Iím experimenting with a hole punch.... but I might settle for making lids from beads and stuff. The original corks were beautifully tapered, not sure I can achieve that. I'll see how it works with straight corks.
