    Rock candy chimney

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I finished the chimney top. The exterior is about done except for some touch ups and simple landscaping when I get a foundation board for it.
  2. Hi, I'm trying to build the third floor but I ran into a problem. See the red underline on the instruction sheet, I can't find the piece with that name in sheet 19. The only 2 chimney pieces on that sheet have diferent names, but the instructions say "left chimney trim" which one is it? Maybe I'm just blind but I've been searching through the sheets and I can't seam to find it. If you have built this house and have a picture of this piece or remember the shape of it please let me know! I have the third floor in dry fit but can't assemble the chimney until I solve this
  3. From the album: The Laurel Build

    Trying to decide what material I am going to cover the fireplace chimney.

    Chimney Breast

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    I currently have the stair wall as a feature wall of painted horizontal tongue and groove but I'm thinking of doing the entire room like this with the exception of the chimney breast which would be white card painted like plaster. I feel if I do the whole room in painted tongue and groove then the floor needs to stay some sort of wood colour for a point of difference but I'm not sure what colour. I'm really partial to my distressed painted floor idea so not sure what to do.
  5. This is a highly detailed Fireplace ready for any room in your diorama or dollhouse. Made of white ABS. All of my items are created on a 3D Flashforge Creator Pro Printer. They are printed at 200 microns resolution which is very detailed. I use ABS filament. This item is sold unpainted. This way you can add your own touch to your piece. Also I hope to save you money with all your projects using this method. Scales Availlible 1/12 - 1/24 – 1/25 – 1/32 scale. http://www.ebay.com/itm/112283365575?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  6. Hi everyone! I have been thinking about possible designs for my Fairfield's chimney and I'm feeling inclined to try a victorian style with miniature bricks. Something like this, either square or rectangular shaped, or other designs that could work in this scale. I was wondering if anyone has a link for a blog or tutorial about building dollhouse brick chimneys, I like this kind of design on top and I've seen it done in dollhouse pictures. I've found this blog which shows the kind of look I'm going for but the process for making the bricks seams a bit too complicated for a newbie on a smaller scale, so I was wondering if there are other alternative materials or techniques I can use to achieve the same effect. I've seen this kind of chimney on tudor style houses as well, so if you have built one like this or similar I would be interested in any tips or advice on how to achieve that look. If you know anyone who has built this sort of chimney and have a link to their gallery or blog that'd be fantastic as well
  7. From the album: Sugarplum Dollhouse

    After researching a ton on the Internet, I decided to experiment with foam bored to create a brick facade. It relatively easy and inexpensive. I painted the chimney in a base color with acrylic paint

    Slow progress

    From the album: Halcyon Quay - half scale Buttercup

    Slow progress. The four entry windows will be closed up. Foam chimney mock-up. It might be too overpowering. I may cut the width by about a third. Still need to sand everything.
  10. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Detail of the finished exterior stonework, showing the deep colors of the stone and the final medium-grey grout color.
  11. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    In this shot you see the faux-concrete chimney top (this is called "flaunching"—the things I learn for minis!!), and the "terra-cotta" chimney pots, which I molded of polymer clay. I had originally planned to put a metal "cap" over the lot (these keep out birds, squirrels, and debris), but the cute chimney pots got lost under it, so I decided it looks like the Aucoins are going to have squirrel and woodpecker damage someday, but they don't know that yet. ^_^
  12. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The finished chimney. Worth mentioning that a chimney of this size (remember from the earlier pictures that the stonework goes up the inside wall as well) is VERY heavy. Easily tripled the weight of the building. I had built and attached the base-extension very strongly to take the weight, but honestly if I knew then what I know now I might have attached the extension even more sturdily. It doesn't seem to be creaking or in any way complaining, but I always like to overbuild rather than risk underbuilding. (Hopefully, that habit of mine means I did overbuild enough.)

    This is my first pass with "stone" colors. Beautiful, I think—but way too subtle for mini!
  14. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    When the roof is on, the seam is designed to be as unnoticeable as possible... but in this shot, with the lower part basecoated and the upper section naked, it's pretty obvious, ha ha!
  15. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    As I said, the chimney is in two sections so that the roof of the sugar shack remains removable. The is the "upper" chimney, attached permanently to the roof itself.
  16. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The stonework on the outside was difficult because there was so darned much surface to cover, because I had chosen a style of stone to imitate that I don't usually do, because the chimney is in two pieces (so that the roof can lift off) and I wanted that to be as unnoticeable as possible, and because the massive structure narrows as it goes higher, meaning there's almost nowhere on the whole chimney where I felt like I was doing something I'd done before—so little repetition made the whole thing a high-wire act. I'd say "I don't recommend this to others," but hey, we all like the big challenges that look really neat when they're done, so I do recommend it! Just make sure you do work like this on a day when you're feeling patient, and you know there won't be a lot of interruptions.
  17. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The chimney is entirely made of paperclay (FWIW, I'm a big fan of Das Modeling Clay, rather than Creative Paperclay brand, because it's less expensive and seems to work about the same). The stone style is intentionally different on the inside of the building and the outside, but both are (intended to be) authentic to the region where this cabane is situated.
  18. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Back to working on the structure again. This is the exterior skin for the main building's chimney.
  19. I am stuck on the construction of the chimney in the willow - the instructions leave me guessing. I have added the sides but don't know what to do with the following pieces 2 chimney back sides 4 pieces of chimney top sides (each agout 1" bu 3/4 ") Chimney back and fancy scroll pieces which I assume go in top but not according to picture. Thanks, Just Grandpop (Joe)
  20. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    It was surprisingly easy to clean up the mortar. I used my fingers to rub off the excess from the brick surface, then went back with a damp paper towel to wipe down the bricks. I probably made 2 or three passes including cleaning each individual brick. Finally, I rubbed the brick lightly with a dry paper towel.
  21. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I like how this came out and I hope it is durable over the long term. It also occurs to me that if I want to return the bricks more to their rough (non-clear-coated) original state, I could sand them lightly with fine grit sandpaper to remove the clear coat. I also found some matte consistency clear coat as an alternative, but I think I'll stick with it the way it is for now.

    Chimney Complete

    From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    So here's the final product with the tape removed. I'm going to need to do some clean-up of my stain on the roof, but no big deal.
