  1. Ok, I’ve been perusing the forum and the blogs, and in a way I feel like I’ve almost gotten too much information! Lots to process. I’ve labeled and dry-fitted the main bits of my Orchid, and I know what I want to do with about 3/4 of it. However, the exterior is a puzzle. I want to achieve the effect of smooth, newly-applied plaster on the outside of my house, and I’d love to know what material more experienced people prefer to use, and what sort of prep would be best. Thanks!
  2. From the album: Shabby Chantilly

    Taking a break from the exterior and working on the inside. I tend to jump around and I never go in order. I used wall patch first instead of joint compound. The texture it thicker making it easier to work with. I love using cosmetic sponges to apply the paint.(they are super cheap at the dollar store)...I used vintage white, antique ivory and beach sand. I aged it using the beach sand color followed by my favorite ink pad (course brush dipped onto the ink pad). The ceiling is made from cardstock. Then I used a hot glue gun to make designs to resemble old ceiling tiles. It is coming along.

    Working on the bathroom. Checking to see how my homemade tiles look. I do that often. Check and recheck.
  4. From the album: Shabby Chantilly

    I am using Joint Compound (large tub and super cheap) from Lowes as my Stucco. This is my first time working with a plaster/stucco finish on a dollhouse. I like it so far. I am getting the hang of it.
  5. I have been obsessed with miniatures for more than 20 years, building dollhouses, acquiring minis and making my own furniture and accessories using whatever is on hand. I'm also a huge history nerd and have recently been researching Ancient Roman interior design. To combine both interests, I began work creating furniture in 1/12 th scale that might be found in a 1st century Roman Villa. Then I had to design roomboxes to display the items I've made! I am curious if there is anyone else out there who is working on or has experience creating 1/12th scale items and rooms from ancient time periods. I'd love to chat about the interesting challenges of this kind of project!
  6. From the album: The Laurel Build

    I found this raw wood primer sealer. Just trying to see if it is better than Kilz. It had no odor, which I like. I applied plaster over the interior walls to reduce the plywood grooves. Probably was an extra step I didn't need to do. I sanded a ton of the plaster off.
