  2. I use a high-quality paper, currently Epson Premium Presentation Paper - Matte. The colors are more vivid, the images are crisper, and (knock wood) I have not had any issues with fading. I also spray with a matte sealer once printed. Sizing I kind of do by eye. I can't give an exact percentage, because the size of the original images will vary. However, if the wallpaper I've chosen has pattern repeat information, I will try sizing to that (so, if a pattern repeat is 18", I'll make mine 3/4" and see what I think). Please note: I work in half scale; if you're doing 1:12, then an 18" repeat

  3. From the album: Outlander Apothecary

    Well, my Apothecary made it into our local newspaper! They did get a couple of things wrong - such as removing internal walls (there was never any) and Raymond being a 'wooden' doll! But otherwise really happy with how she's written about it!

  5. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Working on the exterior and landscape board. Trying to get my stairs to line up and get everything at the right height is a bit of a PIA but dressmaker pins are a great way to hold foamcore in place before making final decisions. I’m leaving a little bit of height difference from the foam to the stair tread so I can add a brick or cement landing and a patio area at the back of the yard.

  6. From the album: Formal botanical Train garden with 1:24 scale houses

    I wanted something formal with the train being a nice surprise. I bought at least 2 of every plant so that each end mirrors the other end perfectly. And so now Finally after months of preparation. moving a shed, taking down a pool and deck, building the frame, hauling soil, choosing trees plants and shrubs all are in the ground! [ we brought on sod as well to cover the bare spaces. Need a bit more soil then mulch and the lighted houses can be brought in too.

  10. Thanks for the lead, Margie. I tried signing up for the free trial, but the book was not on the site once I registered. Most Breyer sites send me to the existing kit sites (which are usually just the bridles and saddles) and to people who make the final items for purchase. One tutorial I did find was for 1:9 scale, which is a lot of math conversion for a process I already don't know well. At this point, I'm fairly certain I can fake it from the pictures I took at the carriage museum and buy hardware from the Riorondo - the one I had found previously and Holly mentioned above

  11. It looks like you could also download the PDF or read it online here: https://leerebookes.com/ebookfile/read.php?book=Making%20Model%20Horse%20Harness. They have a 30 day trial subscription to read ebooks. Honestly, I try to buy actual content whenever I can - my husband is a composer/musician, so I know how important it is for people to actually buy music, art, etc, as opposed to getting free downloads. However, in this case, the book isn't for sale, so this may be the only way you can find it.

  15. You did a great job on painting it. It definitely looks like a well aged building. It will make a great addition to your outdoor display. How do you like working on this scale compared to the 1:6 you are used to?

  19. Praise well-earned! This really is one of the best mini projects I've ever seen. I swoon over your gorgeous paneling. I've flubbed simple colonial wall paneling so many times that I may just have to buy the darned stuff!

  22. How realistic do you want them to be? (And how much are you willing to spend?!) When I needed dolls for my Little House in the Big Woods build I got some custom made by an Etsy seller: http://www.emilymorganti.com/blog/?p=6335 I was able to specify the hair and clothes to make them look like they're described in the books. They're cloth, so maybe not what you're looking for. But there are other sellers on Etsy who make more realistic dolls, who might do a custom order.
