  1. I use it all the time. I do a lot of non-miniature papercraft and vinyl projects.
  2. Thanks, the lines on the decal seem a bit think to me. I thought of making them thinner, but I had already cut it and I didn't think it would make a big difference.

    Furniture & Accessories

    Furniture and accessories I've made.
  4. I ordered the Roper range I've been longing for . Now I need another good sale to get the monitor top refrigerator. This kitchen in a yet to be determined house has decided to be 1920's era.
  5. I've been trying my hand at making furniture. So far I have three pieces. Maybe one day I'll finally have a house to put them in. I can't seem to finish the Alison Jr. I keep losing inspiration. But I have so many projects I'd like to start. We had a very minor pipe leak and the access panel is in my craft room closet. I store all of the kits I've acquired in there and had to empty out the closet. My husband asked where they all came from and I wasn't sure, seems like they just appear! Six kits and still not a single finished house!
  6. It's 3M lead foil tape that I ordered from www.zoro.com. I don't know if they still sell it in small quantities, but I paid about $12 for the roll.
  7. Thanks, I didn't have red spray paint so I brushed on red acrylic then sprayed it with Krylon Triple Thick Clear Gaze. It self leveled in the brush strokes to create a smooth finish.
  8. The first two pictures in my first post show the box cards which fold flat. The third picture is houses & gift boxes. Hopefully that makes more sense.
  9. They don't the picture with the houses is just little 3d houses & boxes with a removable roof or lid. I tried to separate that picture from the text about the cards but I'm on my phone & it didn't work out. I've also started making these paper cut light boxes using heavy Watercolor paper, a deep shadow box and LED strip lights. This one is a scene from the book Where the Wild Things Are. I use my silhouette cameo and Illustrator software to make these.
  10. My other main hobby is 3d paper crafts. I make a lot of box cards which are getting cards that fold flat to fit in an envelope, but pop up for display. These are a few examples. It's surprising how much people love getting a handmade card in the mail! I also make a lot of 3d houses, putz houses and gift boxes. I use my silhouette cameo to cut all of the pieces out of cardstock & patterned paper.
  11. It's looking really good! I'm working on a house the same color and I see so few RL and miniatures with this green/red/yellow paint scheme that I was starting to wonder if I've made a huge mistake.

    I love this house! I have the kit but have been too intimidated by all of the sanding and those windows to start. I'm looking forward to following along with your build!
  13. Thanks! I won't be using this one since I feel I can make a much better finished product, but it was a great starting point.
  14. Here is my VERY rough lampshade prototype. I was pretty sloppy with my lead lines and paint application. Obviously it is missing a finial and the leading around the bottom. I just wanted to get a feel for working on a round object. I don't know if its to scale - I went of some dimensions I found online for similar lampshades. I will look for a different method to make the lampshade next time since I'm not very happy with how this one turned out.
  15. After taking a hiatus from working on my Alison Jr for a year, due to limited workspace and then a move, I finally started again. Only to be immediately sidetracked with making Tiffany inspired lampshades. Last year I got distracted with stained glass windows... I don't even have a house assembled enough to put these things in! It seems I enjoy making miniatures more than the structures to house them in. I have a prototype but need to investigate better ways to make my lampshade. I'm wondering if applying my stained glass techniques to a lampshade made from translucent polymer clay w
