Maison Ginny — Red Cottage Miniatures Hill View
Yesterday was an abundance of minis! It really doesn’t get any better than that, just sayin'.
Not only did I get the wonderful handbag and book from Deborah (Debsrand56), I also got the new kit I’d ordered from Shannon at Red Cottage Miniatures (shannonc60). So I dove right in and started dry fitting.
It's been almost two weeks since I ordered my first dollhouse and I already recieved it and dry fitted yay!
Right now I'm dissasembling everything as I decide any modifications on rooms and so on. But I need some help on moldings.
I already have some wallpapers ready to print, but I would like to know where can I buy 1:24 moldings? All I can find (at least near me) are 1:12 moldings (crown molded or simple).
Do you have any idea and tips?
Half Scale Greenleaf Tennyson
Last year I difficult as I dealt with breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. I had lost myself for many years to illness but I am different now. I want to try to get back into what I liked to do. I am going to start with this little Tenny. I have to try to coax my muse out from under the floor boards so we can start to get some ideas. First step, clean off the table.
Did I Mess Up? I sanded: Oh, NO!
I've been reading that a person should not sand before painting with at least a primer. But my half scale RGT Front-opening Country Victorian arrived so rough and I was getting splinters from handling it. Besides I heard that Brown paper can be used to sand a dollhouse and my kit arrived covered in the stuff. I thought it would be the best to kill two birds with one stone and I used the brown paper to sand it down.
Some pieces are still a little tougher than I would have liked, but I just saw the recommendation that a person not sand until after painting a first coat.
Did I ruin my kit?
So concerned! Thank you!
How Do I Create A Marble Look on Countertops?
I'm buying a lovely safe colored kitchen set in 1:24 scale that was made by Bespaq, but I would like to make the date counters a different color from the cabinets.
White marble is what I'm thinking of, but black marble is also a possibility. I won't know for sure until the set arrives and I try out some marble techniques on some card paper.
How do I go about this?
