So has anybody used these? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1-12-Scale-Houseworks-Common-Joint-Pattern-Clay-Brick-Sheet-/192080326885 If you have, how did you cut them. I'm using them for the flooring in the San Franciscan's basement and I've been scoring and breaking them with mixed success. They are too expensive to just ruin. Any ideas?
I have 4 kits - the stove hood, the counter top stove, the oven front, and the sink. They are already a nice and shiny metal color, but not exactly the stainless steel sort of color I was hoping for. I have tried spray paint and Martha Stewart's multi-surface acrylic craft paint. It either looks weird and runny or you can see my brushstrokes too much. And obviously the paint comes off really easily (I've tried painting these many times!). What do you suggest? Am I not giving these enough coats? Should I be using a primer or a different kind of paint altogether? I have no experience painting on metal. I think the sink could probably just stay as it, and maybe even the stove top, but wouldn't the oven door and hood look better painted? I'm so bummed that I'm just about to throw these across the room so I will stop looking at them
Hi all, Unfortunately I'm in a place in my life where I don't have the time or space to work on miniatures and money is tight so I have to downsize. I have a bunch of stuff to sell: furniture, accessories, kits, catalogs/magazines, maybe even some supplies. A lot of this stuff i have had around for a long time and I either had no plans of working on or using most of it. I was keeping it just in case it came in handy someday or for future projects that I'll never get to. I'd hate to throw this stuff out (Already accidentally lost my loganberry mill in the shuffle. It got put in the trash pile) so I'm posting here because I want to see it go to a good home. Much of it is in storage at the moment so as i work my way through I'll list different things each week. Please PM me for prices or further information, photos, shipping/local pickup details.
