  1. I have been looking for the type of stair Sally showed too!!! It seems like the stairs available only have one option for newel posts. I would love to see kits where you could pick your own posts and spindles, sort of mix and match style. Beautiful work.

    it looks great, i would love to see it from the front to get the feel of the depth.
  3. I just found out the other day that someone I work with, and whose style and ethic I really admire, is also a miniaturist. Now I know why I like her so much!!
  4. I like the idea! I looked around on the internet and saw these two, very different, but similar ideas. http://www.thegreenhead.com/2007/11/christ...se-calendar.php http://gingerbreadsnowflakes.com/node/107

A chandler or candler would have been a tradesman. Likely the shop would not have had a name, just a guild sign hanging outside. Official herbalists were usually monks. There were people who work trades unregulated, but they would have most likely operated as a cottage industry, out of their home. Depending on the thing it could be illegal.

  10. Alright, I made a second doll. :groucho: His name is Alistair. There are more pictures in my gallery. I spent almost 5 hours dressing this guy, and I am not happy with the result. I love the figure, but the clothes... Ugh I am not a seamstress, that's for sure! Are there places I could buy decent clothes? The patterns I can find are mostly for "historic era" clothes.

  12. This is a good site: http://www.thistothat.com For all your gluing needs!
  13. Thanks for the hint on that Sherri, but her clothes are literally pinned on to her in the back with straight pins, so I have to do some major fixing! When you do doll clothes do you sew them, or use glue? I already started my next, before poor Elsa is even finished. The heads are the most fun!
