  1. Hi everyone! I've had a long quiet period on here, but I've been steadily working away and going to shows/shops (I was at Good Sam in San Jose and was fortunate to visit Dollhouses, Trains, and More in Novato, CA for their closing sale). I will, finally, post a batch of haul and progress photos in the first week of November, when I get settled back into my home in Eugene. I really am terrible with a camera and it bugs everyone I know! In the meantime, I have a question: Has anyone ever tried adding siding after their build's exterior was complete? Still being a novice, when I finishe
  2. I had a lot of people on Instagram ask me how I made the weathered siding for my house so I am posting a tutorial! Feel free to ask me questions on here or on my IG account (dollhousejournal)! This technique super simple and fun to do! Supplies: Cardboard (I used cereal boxes) Scissors Ruler Pencil White School Glue Acrylic Paint (I used brown and cream) Step 1. Measure and cut cereal box into strips. Step 2. Paint strips with base color and let dry completely. Step 3. Apply a thin layer of white school glue.
  3. It finally occurred to me that I'm on a Greenleaf forum and I have never shared that Greenleaf has one of my favorite and most used products, but I'll get to that last. First a couple of questions. Is anyone familiar with Greenleaf's vinyl tile flooring? Is it glossy, and if so, can it be dulled? I want a paved stone look throughout the entire first floor of my Creole plantation house. This product: https://shop.greenleafdollhouses.com/miniature-scale-vinyl-floor-tiles-grey/ While I can do the paperclay method, I'm worried that is going to add a great deal of weight
  4. Hello! I am finally hoping to start on my own dollhouse after renovating a dollhouse for my toddler. I am thinking about the weight of the house, as well as cost and have searched and searched and have not found as many photos of siding made with cardboard or upholstery strips. I would love to see some examples! Thank you I have also attached a picture of my dh, it is front opening and I will be making some modifications to the exterior to add modern touches and am also thinking of cutting windows on both sides.
  5. Hello everyone! I'm new at this stuff, but I've been reading this forum for months and I've learned so much from you all. Finally realized I should register. I'm hoping you can advise me on one issue... I'm attempting to renovate a large 1970's dollhouse that originally had no siding. Very carefully I glued on clapboard siding (the kind that comes in overlapping wooden sheets) using Beacon Quik-Grip. After letting each side dry overnight, weighted down and taped, I began to paint it with Kilz primer and regular latex house paint. And then... horrors! The siding began to warp a bi
  6. I'm looking to buy some siding sheets for my San Francisco house and I'm confused with the imperial sizes. I'm interested in your opinions on the right size (height wise) siding for 1:12. The options where I'm looking to purchase are 1/2 inch or 3/8 inch.. which is better for scale in your opinion?

    This church on the site of the Whitney Plantation grew from a benevolent society formed by enslaved persons. It was, in the beginning, called the Anti-Yoke Society, referring to the wooden yoke that slaves were sometimes forced to wear across their shoulders. After Emancipation, the name morphed to the Antioch Baptist Church. When the current congregation build a new church, this one was donated to the plantation museum. I was taken by the intricate shingling on the front.

    I had a little time this afternoon so I measured and cut siding. I have it taped in place in dry fit. I like to paint it before applying it because I can do a better job that way. I have to admit I really like the siding sheets. They are fast to fit and easy to use.

    The White Rose

    From the album: The White Rose

    The siding has been giving me fits. I almost gave up and went to clapboard. Almost. But then I decided to slow down and cut out all the window (and door) openings so that I would get the effect I want. It's tedious, but turning out much better. In the top image you can see the piecing, and even though I've lined up the board "planks" the seams will show. Filling with spackle won't hide this, so I had to stop and stare at the house for awhile. I didn't want to cut all the openings; but the oval ones are the most difficult, and while slow going, it's turning out right (see bottom image).

    This is the first bay window I completed with egg cartons for stone. Not a very good job. I did much better with the front bay.
