  1. Help building the house (Orchid)

    What Holly said - sand and primer are your friend. Sand every edge to make it easier to assemble with glue. Stain everything that will have a wood look and I use white Kilz primer on everything that will be wallpapered or painted. It protects the wood and makes paint lay better and not absorb. DO NOT use hot glue for assembly. Everyone has their go to glue, mine is Gorilla wood glue. You can use painters tape to hold pieces while they set. I only ever used hot glue for shingles.  After sanding, a wise idea is to dry fit everything. Sounds like an extra step that would be easy to skip, but it really gives you a good idea of what goes where. Not only does it help navigate and assure everything fits, but it will actually help make the assembly directions a little clearer to read. I know I end up reading every direction a hundred times. Dollhouses and costume patterns do that to me...first read through is always greek.. and if something is especially trying to understand, as lighting was for me, look it up on youtube. Its amazing how many tutorial videos are available for all sorts of specific steps. You may even find a video or blog specifically building the Orchid. And of course everyone here is incredibly helpful if you get tripped up along the way. And I love love love scrapbook paper for wallpaper, found at craft stores, and upholstery fabric makes great carpets!

    Thanks Sable, I've fixed the original post, of course now I have to rethink what to do...  
  3. Creatin' Contest 2017

    What do you see in the new contest design?? Aw man!! Thanks for the information - I was completely out of sorts there thinking they'd updated their main page and I didn't do anything with last years.. so here it is post edited for 2017!! DOH! Glad I posted this though - I was all about a design for last year's kit! May still have to do it though... XD

    My favorite find was sheets of styrene which I used in strips to hide all the seams and the levels where they divide and show carpet and flooring edges
