Real Name

  1. From the album: My First Dolls house

    I planned on leaving the landing open to the downstairs but realism won out and I had to make it look usable aka safe. I made the banister to match the dining room divider.
  2. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    I'm waiting on supplies for the basement apartment plus I needed a change of scenery so I decided to work on the dining room today. Everything is still in dry fit so it's all a house of cards that could come tumbling down at any moment. The table isn't finished so the top hasn't been glued down yet.. I've used these random metal minis to weigh it down so it would sit more evenly on my very wonky floor. (It warped during white washing and I'm yet to find a way to fix it... No amount of heavy books has managed it yet. ) The table got a coat of Walnut Brown stain, then several t

    Not installed yet....waiting until I install the floors.

    Marble Hearths

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    I made a couple of marble hearths out of polymer clay for the San Franciscan. One is thick and one is thinner. I'm leaning towards the thinner one, as I like the swirls. I may use the other one in another room or I may make another. This was Miranda's (SewMini) idea, that I have shamelessly stolen. Gotta watch out for us Aussies.. we have convict blood. Thanks Miranda! I watched a tutorial but there was too much mixing and I ended up with hardly any veins. Operator error no doubt. So essentially I just loosely mixed pearl, silver & translucent clay. Then sep

    Marble Hearth

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    "Marble" Hearth with fireplace & mantle. I watched a tutorial but there was too much mixing and I ended up with hardly any veins. Operator error no doubt. So essentially I just loosely mixed pearl, silver & translucent clay. Then separately I loosely mixed white with a small amout of black. Then I rolled everything in a ball and then made snake ropes, by rolling it out into a long snake, folding and then twisting it like a corkscrew. then back into a ball, roll out and cut to size. Much simpler!

    Fireplace close up

    From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    Close up of the fireplace. Nice and sooty. It's not as dark in RL, but I couldn't capture it with my phone camera.. :/ Once I grout, I'll grubby that up too. There is a small Fret/Fire Basket set DH105 and matching coals that I would like to get to set in the hearth.
  7. From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557

    This is the latest dryfit of the dining room. The floors have been installed on their template & will be painted & distressed I think. The fireplace interior brick has been painted awaiting grout. I need to figure out how to simulate a marble hearth (just a stand in piece of mat board with lines at the moment ) The windows are giving me trouble. It seems the pieces that have the window tracks in them have had a piece broken off them over the years and so are no longer wide enough to fit the bays. I've currently got them shimmed with paddle pop sticks, but need to come up with
  8. Hi Everyone, Some time ago I subbed across a website from an artist (I think male) who made fireplaces in both 1:12 scale and 1:24 scale in many different designs. I think he also made plant pots in several designs and sizes. I'm usually meticulous with bookmarking my finds but of course I did;t this time. Just spent the best part of today looking for the website and can't find it. Can anyone help? Sorry for the rather brief description. Cheers Scott
  9. 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.m1
  10. Hi! Newbie question! I want to use brick pattern sheets (http://www.dickblick.com/products/plastruct-patterned-sheets/) to line my fireplace hearth and I'm not sure the best way to go about it. Should they be installed before or after I put it into the fireplace opening? I also would like to use the same brick to around the chimney. Would this product work for that? I'm not sure how it would work on the corners? Any advice would be much appreciated!

  12. From the album: GL Jefferson 2015

    I really like the built-in bookcase & fireplace in this house! It's in good shape, but needs a facelift.
  13. Hi, Has anyone made this house? I believe it was made in 1997. Two years ago I bought this dollhouse kit on e-bay. A week ago I finally started working on it. I can't believe how much fun I'm having. (Retired three years ago) I just put the fireplace and chimney together; found the powdered mortar for it. The general instruction for building the house state to "Follow instructions in Stone Kit for decorating the fireplace and chimney" . Those instructions were not in the kit when I bought it. I hope someone out there has made this cottage or can tell me where to find those instructions
  14. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    Made the living room fireplace today from a small picture frame! Just extended the depth, added the hearth & the mantle, painted it all to match.
  15. From the album: My First Dollhouse - Beacon Hill

    I was inspired by a vintage Bespaq fireplace created by Maritza Moran to build this one for the Bedroom. The shelving looks a litttle off here because it probably is! (I glued it 3 times!) I decided to use candles instead of flames, Otterine's Miniatures gave an excelent tutorial, unfortunately I had none of her supplys on hand. My candles are glue sticks!
  16. 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.
  17. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Bricks (by Andi Mini Brick & Stone, Williamstown, Vermont), here shown faux-painted with built-up creosote and dusted with "ash"; bricks on the floor level are black 400-grit sandpaper (in order not to add thickness at the floor level), cut to mini-brick-sized and individually placed on a pre-"grouted" floor area; and a deeply aged, hand-rubbed finish on the mantel that may be one of my favorite bits of the whole project. It's the littlest details, that no one but the builder may notice, that give the greatest joy in minis...

    Back to working on the structure again. This is the exterior skin for the main building's chimney.
  19. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Once you've cut the first hole in a pristine new kit, there's no going back. 

I had planned for one of those incredible-sized old fireplaces that you can nearly walk into—the kind with a big cauldron on a swing-out arm—imagining that this cabane might have been used for maple sugaring for many decades before the Aucoin family bought it, and so would have been kitted out the old-fashioned way when they "moved in"—rather than with a modern wood-fired stainless steel evaporator as maple syrup producers have now. So the bash began with that giant hole in the wall (in real life it would be

    Fairfield 1

    From the album: Fairfield

    I started working on the fairfield today because it's snowing and I need a break from the Newberg, but I don't want to play any of my computer games lol.
  21. From the album: Country House - Renovated

    This black and white photo is reminiscent of an old fashion Christmas, except for one thing. - There is a very nice laptop computer in this "days of yester-year" scene. If it weren't for the laptop, this still could only date back to the late 60's, at the very earliest - note the albums are Beatles records, though they are hard to make out in this picture. Also, the Beatles Monopoly game in front of the fireplace is fairly recent. Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa, Amy is a Beatles fan as well as a collector of Shirley Temple items. Looks like she had a nice Christmas.
