  1. I bought a house some time ago (years ago) - a salvage - the person really needed to get rid of it. The problem is I don't like it. It is built from chipboard and is very fragile and damaged. I have tried to strengthen and repair it but I can't get enthusiastic. It has some redeeming qualities though. The maker's name is on the bottom. When I pulled up the carpet samples (not dollhouse scale) the "children" (not sure who) had labelled the rooms with a sharpie. Sigh! It looks great when you photograph it but it really isn't. It is so sad. I feel sorry for the house but it is holding me back. I don't want to dump it as chipboard in the landfill is not good but I'm not sure I can give it to say a thrift store - It is big! Advice please! Lisa R.
  2. Oh great stuff- congrats! Lisa R.
  3. The big problem is when the doll comes first - oh boy is it difficult to satisfy them - they have an opinion at every step of the build. Lisa R.
  4. What an interesting thread - so much useful advice - maybe a tutorial in the works?
  5. From Beverly's - with their Fall 50% off coupon just $2.49!
  6. Trish - My husband was able to view this automata in the home of its designer (it was designed in the program Mathematica) - it is amazing. It writes poetry (I have an example) in Pushkin's own handwriting style http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivIHcHwR6b0. There are other YouTube videos that show the work of the studio that actually did the implementation - more amazing work!
  7. Just thought you might like to see some photographs of the (annual) exhibition I curate at the San Lorenzo Valley Museum. This year it was focussed on building things and there is a large area where folks - primarily young folks - can build and then display (with their hand written exhibit label) - what they have built. Enjoy! http://www.flickr.com/photos/12208289@N08/sets/72157635724548705/ Lisa R.
  8. Gosh I can't remember whence I was last here - haven't had a chance to work on my projects for so long. Unfortunately, and I don't know why, the wallpaper on the Gothic house I was working on had developed a crusty coat and bubbles. I did prime the walls and seal the wallpaper. So spent today ripping it off it was a Brodnax paper - nice but oh well). It came off easily but I had finished the surround with overlapping wood - so not sure what I will do now. My daughter's dollhouse (she hasn't had a chance to work on it in several years) is even worse - she has many rooms to re-do - same problem. My surfaces were beech plywood - her's were MDF. Same primer, same sealer and same wallpaper glue. Lisa R.
  9. I wrote this some time ago as the background text for a miniatures exhibit - an abbreviated version was used for the text panels.

  10. Hi Jo We went on Sunday. Love your Sir Steampunk. He'd look great in my Gothic Revival house, in the library with the chemistry set, fossils, etc! Lisa R.
