  1. From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    I used one of my artist palette knives to mix and spread the Spackle. I only had Soft Black and French Grey Blue paint, so I painted the background grout with Soft Black, then mixed the two colours with the Spackle to get a nice gray colour.

  2. I started assembling the shell and saw that the one wall's underside was full of little grooves, giving it a very rough texture. So I, a Spackle virgin, opened the little tub I had bought from Ace (their own brand and Lightweight). Wowza! The stuff looks nearly good enough to eat! It was so light and fluffy, it was actually a pleasure to spackle the entire section. After about 40 minutes, it was completely dry, I gave it a quick sand and could do the shell dry fit. Most of the tabs had to be trimmed a little bit on either end to get them to fit properly in the slots, but there were no other issues. As I was wrapping the lot in painter's tape, I notice the front right corner join of the right outer wall and the middle floor section just wouldn't quite meet tightly, in spite of the tape. So I had to improvise, lay the entire house on top of that right outer wall and I put a 16 ounce bottle of acrylic paint on top of the (now vertical) middle floor to put pressure on the entire section. And then I glued that sucker really good and left it overnight. This morning - perfect fit! Yay, now I can continue the shell's gluing with better fitting pieces. Even my husband is impressed with my new-found carpentry skills. And me.....well, I'm looking for any excuse to use Spackle again! :wicked:
  3. Hello everyone, I'm brand new to houses, miniatures, and "E. all of the above". I purchased an assembled Duracraft vm800 victorian mansion from the sweetest lady who was legally blind, terminal with cancer, and had spent years building her house. It was assembled in the worst possible way, but it has such charm and character that I could not tear it down completely without destroying it. I have repaired as many things (millions it seems) as possible. The main problem is that she spackled the ceilings after wiring, and now most of the fixtures have been broken,, and I can't get to the wiring to repair them. Here is the million dollar question: Does anyone know of any way to get that stuff OFF the ceiling? or am I just going to have to go the LED way? I would do that, but I have fixated on doing a 1940's/1950's house (like my grandma's), so I'm having to build/create many things in it. I was hoping to use some of the original wiring, just because I guess. No logical reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much! Suzi *I will post pics of the rooms as they get closer to their destinations if anyone is interested.
