  1. WOW!! You’re the level of organized I aspire to be! My friend was telling me to have everything planned before hand too!! I’ve cut out paper for the sizing to figure out how I’m going to be placing things. Thanks so much for your input!
  2. Yes epoxy is the one you mix, the one I mentioned Art Resin is a 1:1 ratio so you don’t have to worry about doing any crazy kind of math when mixing and it has a decent working time too. It says it’s “safe” but I still wear my mask and gloves anyway. An for resin stained glass I used the pebeo cerne relief outliner.
  3. Sorry I searched and searched but all I could find is people talking about their removable walls in here and google was confused and gave me false doors… Anyway I’m turning the upstairs of my aster cottage into a proper loft and want to put up a removable/false wall for the bathroom. How do you do that? Do I need mini wheels like they use in closets to slide it back and forth or do I just wedge it in and hope for the best?
  4. Oh hey! I actually use UV resin for my miniatures. Personally I wouldn’t use UV resin for stained glass, I have played with the method and prefer to use epoxy resin in which case I would recommend Art Resin. Reason I wouldn’t use UV resin is because 1) unless you’re willing to purchase the good stuff from Japan (Padico is the brand I use) they’re all pretty terrible and yellow badly (I’ve even purchased some already yellowed) and 2) adding pigment to the cheaper UV resin can get poor results if you don’t know what you’re doing as in your light isn’t strong enough or you put in too much pigment and it never fully cures for example. Either way I suggest using epoxy vs UV. Yes UV dries “quicker” but with resin doing things quickly doesn’t always give the best results. Hope that helps.
  5. Do you sit down and sketch out your houses first or do you just go for it and figure it out as you go? This is my first 1/12 scale dollhouse build and with my diy dollhouses when I kit bashed them I went in with a general idea but just kind of let things happen as I was building. Something tells me I should sketch out any changes I want to do before I actually start applying glue though….
  6. Thank you so much! I looked through the gallery and saw other projects! Now just gotta work out all the kinks!
  7. Doing the dry fit as we speak! Definitely not something I’m used to doing but it helps for sure!
  8. Oh wow that’s EXACTLY what I needed I’m a true visual kinesthetic and have the absolute worst time attempting to decipher text instructions!! Thank you so much!
  9. Hello! My name is Mariana I collect and make miniatures (sweets and treats for non-scale dolls) along with 1/6 scale and non-scale dolls from Japan (Azone, obitsu, Nendoroid). I’ve been working with the diy dollhouses from China for about 4/5 years now. Last year I made the real good toys gazebo, and now I am currently working on the Aster Cottage as my first 1/12 scale house. I apologize now because I am an extremely visual person and coming from the diy dollhouses where everything has pictures with an instruction step the wall of text instructions is quite intimidating honestly.
