  1. Addam's Family inspired

    So... this is my first dollhouse and the one I am currently working on. I joined this group once the house was already built, so no process pictures. But I took some today of where it stands now.  I've made a bunch of mods. So if you have any questions, feel free to ask. And yes, I did clip the corners on every one of those shingles.           
  2. Beacon Hill Stone Chimney Close-up

    From the album Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    A close-up of the chimney on my haunted mansion.  Did finish with air dry clay (distressed white color with Ranger distress liquid spray in Walnut).  Stone made using cardboard packaging material torn into pieces.  Glued with "Quick Grab" glue (I used this glue on everything except my wallpaper, for which I used "Yes" paste and another similar paste, I forget the name of but I think "Grandma" is in the name) onto the clay.  Didn't wait for clay to dry first.  The next day, I dry-brushed over with acrylic paints (grays, browns, white).  After that I painted over with mod podge to seal and harden.  Then I hit with my Tim Holtz distress inks (walnut and peeled paint - brown and green)
  3. Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion Exterior

    From the album Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    I finished the exterior!  I put bricks around the porch foundation but I ran out.  Not sure if I will do the rest of the foundation with more bricks or just leave it. I'm kind of anxious to do more on the interior at this point.  LOL!
  4. Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion Porch

    From the album Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    Close-up of porch with a doll I purchased on Etsy from a lady in  the UK.  She named her Doris Dittany.  She is just adorable, I think anyway.

  7. From the album Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    I to make a stucco type wall with air dry clay.  I also stained some match stix wood pieces for the look of the old-fashioned lath and plaster walls.  I may still do the rest of this room with the same technique, although you may notice the other walls have a different finish (wallpaper and stained stucco to muddy it up.
  8. Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion Interior

    From the album Beacon Hill Haunted Mansion

    A look at the three interior floors.  Used the same cardboard technique described in the chimney photo on the foyer floor.
  9. I just registered, however I’ve been working on my first house, The Beacon Hill, since June (2017). I’ve been thankful to find others who have built this model and have provided pictures and/or tutorials on how some of the pieces go together where the instructions weren’t very clear. My inspiration came from The sea hag house by WyckedWood, although I didn’t use drywall mud on the outside bc I couldn’t figure out how she did it - LOL!  I haven’t seen anyone else who used the Beacon Hill as a haunted/distressed model, but I really LOVE how hers turned out. I wanted to attach pics, but it says the file is too big. Will have to try later on my laptop instead of from my phone
  10. Thursday 5/21/15   I've completed the main gable over the front of the Orchid. I had a bit of an issue figuring out the alignment of the gable because I tend to invert things and of course I don't follow direction very well but I did get it to work out.   I'm thinking of papering one attic room with newspapers, I found a free printie site with 1:12 scale newspapers and now I just need to find paper that will work as newsprint and print them out. I'm thinking of aging the paper with a weak tea solution.   I'm not progressing fast, but I'm not in a huge hurry either. Just letting the house speak to me and tell me it's tale.
  11. Disgusting Delicacies

  12. Building The Chrysnbon Cook Stove

    Friday January 3rd 2014 Today I worked on the Chrysnbon stove I purchased off of Ebay. I loved this stove the minute I saw it and figured it would be an easy build since I have had model building experience putting together models since I was about 8. So while I had the spare time, I gathered the stove kit, my exacto blade kit, my Tamiya cement (I can't say enough great things about this cement, I love it) and a mug of coffee. Three hours later, most of it is done. I'm a perfectionist and I won't hurry any model building I do. The stove is drying, the feet need to go on and I'll snap a photo later and talk more in depth on the stove, and it's importance to me in this dollhouse. But in the mean time, I'm loving the Chrysnbon kit. I have 4 more on the way. Let the modeling happy times begin!
  13. December 30th 2013. For Christmas I received an Orchid Dollhouse. To say I'm really excited is an understatement. This is something I've wanted forever. When it came to me, finally after what seemed like a forever wait, I spent a long time just looking at the box and thinking of the possibilities. The first thing that came to mind is "I want to create a haunted house." Not with Casper type ghosts but one with a history. So haunted it shall be. What to name it, I'm not sure yet. But I have an idea. So I placed the house under the Christmas tree to wait for a time I would have with no rushing to open it up. The first thing I would need would be studio space to work on the house. We have two extra rooms that aren't being used on the second floor and I've decided to take one over as my miniature studio. Since I was little I've enjoyed working with models and I'm excited to be able to visit that hobby again. This time working with miniatures and having the space to do it in. I also received a boat load of Sculpey clay for Christmas, so that opened up a lot of possibilities too. Hello miniature food, another extreme interest of mine. The studio space is purple, with a built in cabinet that I can store craft items in. It's perfect. It has a South Western exposure with beautiful sunlight that pours in from about noon onward. I'm lugging down a huge kitchen table that was stored on our third floor, and I need to find more storage bins for my clays, paints, tools and stuff. It should be fun arranging all of this. It's probably going to start in the Spring, as the second floor studio area is not heated, and I don't want to work in 48 degree temps! In the meantime, I have purchased a few Chrysnbon kits. And I need to get photos organized of my purchases so that I can see what I have. My newest purchase is a work lamp, that has a magnifying glass for my old eyes! The world of miniatures is a creative path I'm on that's for sure, and one that I've been wanting to travel on forever.

  15. Potions and herbs.

    From the album A haunted Glencroft

    Started on a potion cabinet. Needs some more work. It looks too clean.
  16. Ghost in the mirror.

    From the album A haunted Glencroft

    Re-purposed a mirror from a make-up compact, sanded off the coating in the center and attached an image I found on google.
  17. A few pieces of furniture.

    From the album A haunted Glencroft

    I found a site with a ton of spooky printables and tried out one of the coffins. Prints nice, easy to put together and looks pretty good. I prefer wood and will probably make one later on.
  18. From the album A haunted Glencroft

    The house was in bad shape. Old, dilapidated, and ripe for a haunting.
