  3. Hello there, I am new to the mini community but have been an admirer for years.   I am giving my daughter a house full of furniture for Christmas this year and in the last two days have learned a lot of things about scale that I had no idea existed.   My problem is that I fell in love with some 1:16 scale furniture and ordered it not knowing that the home kits are specific sizes.   I LOVE the 1:12 scale homes more than the 1:16 scale home and am wondering if the 1:16 scale furniture will look terrible in a 1:12 scale home?   I plan on using all 1:16 scale furniture and dolls.  Do any of you have both a 1:12 scale home and 1:16 scale furniture that you could show me a picture of the size difference.  I've searched everywhere online and have only been able to find pictures of the furniture compared to each other but not a 1:12 scale home with all 1:16 scale furniture inside.   Thank you so much!   I'm sure as I get building, I will have a million more questions as well. 
  4. Hi everyone I am excited to be here. I just found this new hobby and passion yesterday.  To be honest, I can't wait to begin building! But there are so many things to consider before jumping into it.  I have tried to find out which scale I want to build.  A lot uses 1:12 inch scale. And I am sorry, but I don't get the inch scale. I have tried to google it in centimeters, which is what I use.  If you take this door for example: http://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Dollhouses-Miniatures/Building-Electrical-Components/Miniature-Carolina-Door/p/21689 Then in centimeters it should be 19.69 high and 8.57 wide and 1.27 thick.  Is this a 'normal' scale to use? I think it sounds a bit large for a dollhouse/miniature house.    Thank you  
  5. Train Set Scale?

    Hi everyone!   We are working on our Colonial dollhouse at 1/12 scale and wanted to build a town around it...we want to have a steam locomotive going around the town and was wondering if anyone knows which type/scale train set we should look for??
  6. Built-in cupboard

    I made a built-in cupboard for the Pierce dollhouse but I may have to rethink it. I really like the way it has turned out but it now seems to overwhelm the space. I still need to add a stove and sink and the remaining room is now very diminished.  I am thinking I may remove the top, center drawer and replace it with a farm sink. I'm going to build a sink and stove and then see how everything fits into the remaining space.

    Last fall I decided to try sculpting miniature candles out of polymer clay for a 1:12 Thanksgiving scene. Real candles are cool too, but I noticed that over time they sort of melt and deform on their own, which isn't good if you really want them to look exactly how you made them. With a mix of opaque and translucent white polymer clay, twisted into spirals, I manged to make these look very detailed, given their sizes. I only needed 3 or 4 for my project, but once I figured out the technique, I kept making more. Each one of these is an original sculpture, candles at varying stages of use. No two are exactly same. I have been debting over what to do with them, but I eventually decided to post them as a OOAK set in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/listing/129816201/15-miniature-hand-sculpted-polymer-clay?ref=shop_home_active

  13. Colonial Attic

    From the album Half Scale Colonial

    I like this paper. Same story as with the LR and kitchen...bargain basement. I think I might make a hole and a ladder for access.
  14. Colonial Second Floor

    From the album Half Scale Colonial

    I am not sure how thrilled I am with the colors. I will have to see how they look with windows and furniture.
  15. Colonial LR

    The living room. Same story on the wallpaper as with the kitchen.
  16. Colonial Kitchen

    From the album Half Scale Colonial

    I haven't decided what to do on the ceilings yet. I have molding, but not sure what t do about texture. This is RL wallpaper I bought at "Asset Recycling." It is like a Habitat for Humanity Resale Store. They used to have hundreds of rolls of designer wallpaper for $1/roll. Not too long ago they dropped the price to 25 cents. Now they don't carry wallpaper anymore. The way they were talking, I think I was the only one that bought any.
  17. Colonial Exterior

    I found a nice dark green mis-tint at Home Depot. I like how it came out. I am already thinking about using this color on another project.
  18. Colonial Box Picture

    From the album Half Scale Colonial

    Okay, so this is how it is supposed to look when completed...more or less.
  19. From the album My Travel Finds

    This was a special find. In this gallery I mention a Farmhouse kit that I bought in Oklahoma. I found this bag of furniture in the tote with the FH pieces a few weeks after I got home. It is from Debbie Young at "Young at Heart." I couldn't find this set when I searched her site, so I sent a quick email. This was a special kit that was part of the 2005 national convention. There were only 300 made. She didn't specify, but I think it was part of a workshop. At the time it was valued at about $85. Not a bad find as part of a $40 DC Farmhouse kit! I dug deeper to see if the cottage was in the tote, but I am not THAT lucky.
