  1. When you are making a pinning board from a ceiling tile and you cover it with graph paper, which side do you cover? I assume it’s the side with the least holes.
  2. Hello, I am looking for advice on using real tile in my dollhouse bathroom. I purchased a sheet of glass mosaic tiles which i thought i might be able to jse but nlw i am not sure how due to the thickness being out of scale which will be seen on the front edge of the room . I cant raise the floor of the rest of the upatairs to match so to hide it with trim so most likely I would be using on the walls. Anyone have any ideas?
  3. From the album: My First Dolls house

    Bathroom tiles and flooring completed. I had to spend a lot of time making the existing door opening smaller to fit the odd sized handmade door I purchased at Miniatura. Just skirting and coving to go and this room is fully decorated ready for when I find the right fixtures.
  4. 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!
  5. Has anyone ever inkjet printed a pattern of brick or stone on paper then used embossing powder/heat gun to texture it? ...clear embossing powder could be used over a color printout. Use a grey colored paper as the mortar or whatever color you want. Create tile too? If the printed pattern is spotty or grainy I think it would create a rough texture? ...would have to use the right kind of paper & probably hi-res image for heavier ink output? You could coat it with a mat finish?
  6. Does anyone here have experience using this product? http://miniaturedesigns.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=12_281&sort=20a&page=1 I'm particularly interested in the "faux-marble" tiles. I'm not convinced they look that much like marble, but I've been wanting a really gleaming blue/green/aqua glass tile effect for my tub/shower surround, and so far this looks closest to it. Most of the colours come in 3/8 inch, which seems about like the right scale for bathroom walls to me. I thought I might buy 2-3 colours in the blue/green/aqua shades and mix them up. There are threads of glittery gold running through them, which would totally work for what I have in mind. And apparently they're 1/16 inch and made of acrylic, so wouldn't add a lot of thickness or weight to my walls, and supposedly aren't too hard to cut. That said, these things aren't cheap, and I'd really prefer to see a photo of them actually in use somewhere, and understand better how they are placed/spaced/grouted (or not) before making a purchase. I've scoured the internet but can't seem to find much in the way of pictures of them in use, and I haven't been able to find any reference to them on this forum. Thanks! Emily

    stone tile brick

    From the album: CNC

    Left to right: stone, tiles, brick - machine scaled down size by half - so more like 1/24 scale?

    Mosaic pieces are an assortment of polymer clay and the, "grout", is a light/soft polymer clay. Some of the color was done with water color pencils, and the tops of these have been glazed over with translucent liquid polymer clay for a more finished look. Available in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/kylelefort

  9. From the album: The Steampunk House

    This is a close-up of the eclectic tile floor, found in the Kitchen. It was only supposed to cover half of the room, but at the last minute I expanded to design to fit the entire space. Thin strips of polymer clay, hand cut into tiles, and glued onto graph paper. Some of the corrugated scrapbooking paper, from he fireplace's back-splash and some gold wrapping paper were also mixed in to help tie the whole room together. Everything was then sealed with Polyurethane. Read about the whole project and see more photos on my blog; http://kyle-lefort.blogspot.com/2013/05/undersized-urbanite-entry-steampunk.html

  10. Hi All! I'm getting ready to do the rest of the floors for my Primrose/Vineyard bash and I'm trying to decide the best way to create stone or marble or regular old tile floors with absolutely no budget. (Aka, whatever I have in the house, or can get for free.) I'm very happy with my wood floors I created, but I want to mix up the textures a little and not have just wood for the whole thing. Also, scoring the boards with the dremel took two people and I kinda need to be able to do the rest by myself. Here are the methods I'm contemplating: Egg carton stones (I have 2 crates saved and another in the fridge.) Homemade clay or paper clay stones (My fireplace turned out well, but I need a better sealer: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=66228) Individual life-sized self adhesive fake tiles that can supposedly be bought for like, a buck each Now, for my second dilemma... I'm petrified that I will screw up on the floors and not be able to get the mess off! Should I create separarate tiles and glue them on or should I spread on a layer of paper clay and just score in the lines? Should I glue to a template and not the actual floor and then glue the template in? I'm open to any and all suggestions... Here are some real-life floors I like:
