  1. Bathroom Tile

    From the album My First Dolls house

    Bathroom tiles and flooring completed. I had to spend a lot of time making the existing door opening smaller to fit the odd sized handmade door I purchased at Miniatura. Just skirting and coving to go and this room is fully decorated ready for when I find the right fixtures.
  2. Using real tile, help?

    Hello, I am looking for advice on using real tile in my dollhouse bathroom. I purchased a sheet of glass mosaic tiles which i thought i might be able to jse but nlw i am not sure how due to the thickness being out of scale which will be seen on the front edge of the room . I cant raise the floor of the rest of the upatairs to match so to hide it with trim so most likely I would be using on the walls. Anyone have any ideas? 
  3. I have been obsessed with miniatures for more than 20 years, building dollhouses, acquiring minis and making my own furniture and accessories using whatever is on hand. I'm also a huge history nerd and have recently been researching Ancient Roman interior design. To combine both interests, I began work creating furniture in 1/12 th scale that might be found in a 1st century Roman Villa. Then I had to design roomboxes to display the items I've made! I am curious if there is anyone else out there who is working on or has experience creating 1/12th scale items and rooms from ancient time periods. I'd love to chat about the interesting challenges of this kind of project!
  4. Basement Bathroom - light on.JPG

    From the album First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Trying out this light in the room... Not sure if I'll use it. I was just going to use a nondescript ceiling mounted fixture in this room. But the demanding little minx wants something more.  The room is still in dry fit so the left hand corner of the show will be grouted once the walls are glued together. As will the floor to wall junction.  Excuse the droopy shower rose, it's just propped in there like everything else in this room.

  6. Basement Bathroom Shower Stall.JPG

    From the album First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Grouting is mostly done. I can't do the left hand corner or the floor to wall connection until I glue this room in. Everything is still in dry fit. I'll also attack the trims with Spackle after gluing.   Finished off my little frosted window in the diagonal wall as well.  Fixtures are from Elf Miniatures.  More pics on my Blog    
  7. Has anyone ever inkjet printed a pattern of brick or stone on paper then used embossing powder/heat gun to texture it? ...clear embossing powder could be used over a color printout.  Use a grey colored paper as the mortar or whatever color you want. Create tile too? If the printed pattern is spotty or grainy I think it would create a rough texture? ...would have to use the right kind of paper & probably hi-res image for heavier ink output? You could coat it with a mat finish?

  9. Mosaic Garden Tile Sets

    From the album Scenes & Other Minis

    Mosaic pieces are an assortment of polymer clay and the, "grout", is a light/soft polymer clay. Some of the color was done with water color pencils, and the tops of these have been glazed over with translucent liquid polymer clay for a more finished look. Available in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/kylelefort

  10. From the album The Steampunk House

    This is a close-up of the eclectic tile floor, found in the Kitchen. It was only supposed to cover half of the room, but at the last minute I expanded to design to fit the entire space. Thin strips of polymer clay, hand cut into tiles, and glued onto graph paper. Some of the corrugated scrapbooking paper, from he fireplace's back-splash and some gold wrapping paper were also mixed in to help tie the whole room together. Everything was then sealed with Polyurethane. Read about the whole project and see more photos on my blog; http://kyle-lefort.blogspot.com/2013/05/undersized-urbanite-entry-steampunk.html
