  1. I have a question for anyone who has built a Beacon Hill. I punched out all the pieces for the trim (I think they are called corbels, 22 & 23 maybe 25...trying to list them from memory) the directions say to keep the back flat edges "flush" when gluing the sides to the middle but the curves of the "corbel " don't seem to line up. Anyone else experience this or is it just me ? if so, how did you make it more uniform ? Sanding and wood filler/ spackle ? Too, some of the pieces crumbled when I punched them out. Did anyone make their own ? I am so close to being finished and am getting frustrated with these little "corbels" and getting my front door working. I will try to get some pictures later, if I can...
  2. I had to do some clothes shopping today (ugh) but I always cast my eye over the jewelry stands, in case. And today, I was rewarded richly with these amazing earrings: The individual charms look perfect for gingerbread trim decorations, see? There were only 3 pairs of earrings left, so I grabbed them all before any of the other shoppers could even blink twice. That's about 96 charms, enough to glue to both sides of the gingerbread trim of the roof so that it looks gilded from all angles. Since Santa's House is getting a red roof with green walls, maybe I should paint the trim green as well? Or will red paint make the gold "pop" more? Or how about leaving the trim white, with the gold to give it some sparkle? Any ideas which colour would look better? Oh, and my husband suggested that a stone finish for the porch foundation walls would look better than plain paint. Sigh. More work. At least he is showing an interest!

    Spent hours sanding and painting Opal's trim.
  4. I'm ready to tackle all the little bits of door and window trim. Gina's blog has been super helpful so far, but isn't very explicit for newbies like me to figure out the whole itty-bitty setup. Interior kitchen/living room door: Is there any trim for this door? How do you finish it without trim? Just glue some skinny sticks on the exposed wood core? Or can I use kebab sticks? I have kebab sticks that are the exact thickness. Windows: Do I glue the acetate to the inside of the wall and then glue the inside trim over it? Or do I glue the acetate to the outside of the wall and glue the trim over it? And where do the window sills fit in relation to the acetate? Front Door: Is the nice-facing plywood side of the door backing supposed to show to the outside or to the inside? Mine has a rough texture on the back side, so I want to hide it. Since so much of it will be hidden by the door decorative trim, can I change it around or will it mess with the placement? Where and how do I glue the door into position? But I would love to show off the stairs and some of the interior, so would have to hinge it, but don't have the courage for pin hinging or brass hinges. I do, however, have some thin chamois leather to try and make hinge strips (as someone suggested in a previous post). Would I glue them in between the door back and door trim first? And then glue them into the wall trim (in between wall and trim)? Sorry for so many questions - but so many of you have helped with the build so far, I'd hate to ruin everyone's efforts with an uninformed rush job!

    Braids & trims

    From the album: Various Miniatures

    From Left side: Christmas type trim and braids. A few for curtains, some will make nice rugs. Top strip with lime, green and black detail has nice texture for a rug. Three hexagon types: closeup they have crochet texture - will cut them up for placemats or doilies. Underneath hexagons: Muted colours trim - abstract rugs, gorgeous colours. Is actually iron-on, so plastic backing will prevent fraying when I cut it apart. Gold & Silver sparkle velvet trim: instant cushions, fold over, glue and fill them up! Beige and white laces for curtains. White large lace for table cloth and smaller joined rectangles for placemats or doilies. Top right: good colour range of soutache type cord. Plus lots more beads, charms and metal pieces, but they won't photograph nicely. I was lucky to find two shops that were prepared to cut half-yards of lace for me!

  6. So I got all the wallpapering done on Pearl ( The Fairfield) and pulled out the sheets with the trim - geeze there is a ton of it ! And the pieces are so little and fragile , I broke a couple of them between punching them out and sanding. Over half done sanding then on to painting them all . I might be weird but I definitely prefer the 1/12 scale over the 1/24 scale , I think the little Van Buren will be waiting a long time.

    Trim Choices

    From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    Compared to the roof design, the white does "pop" more. I'm hoping the gold will add a luxurious feeling to the top trim.

    Gold Trim 2

    From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    These fit perfectly on the trim for the roof - enough for both sides. Next question is: what colour for the trim: red, green or white?

    Gold Trim 1

    From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    The chandelier drop earrings are perfect for mini use! I tried finding more online, but no luck.

    Opal's trim

    From the album: More building projects

    Decided to make my own trim for the windows & door.
  11. Hello Everyone, I have several questions about different areas. I found a Victorian styled built dollhouse at a Flea Market but it needs some tlc. The highest point on the dollhouse is 33 inches tall. I am building multiple House of Miniatures Kits and Realife Miniatures kits, what is the best stain and polyurethane/shellac to use? Any suggestions? I have the Minwax 2 in 1 stain/poly, would that be ok? Oh and I bought the wood preconditioner since the wood is old and dry. I was wondering about flooring in a dollhouse? I want to do wood floors. Some of my floors just need a stain/finish, others need wood flooring installed on top because of the two pieces of wood coming together. Any product suggestions? Also if I use wood clapboard as flooring what glue should I use? Or is it best to buy the ready to install wood flooring? I plan on electrifying my dollhouse but I am not sure if I could do it myself or if I should have it done at the dollhouse shop near me? I want to have multiple outlets in each room to move lamps around. Also after installing the electricity, how do you wallpaper? The shop near me charges $10 per room for electric + $10 to wallpaper. My dollhouse has 5 to 6 rooms. I have a 1:12 or 1:1 scale dollhouse with small 10 3/4 inch deep rooms that are 9 1/2 inches in length. With ceilings that are about 9 1/4 inches tall. I want to add molding on the top and bottom of the walls. Is there a size of molding that would be best for such small rooms? Thank you for your responses, I am new to the hobby of miniatures. I need to learn the skills and secretes of miniatures. I appreciate any tips or advice. I have included a picture of my house and the wallpaper books that I will be using.
  12. http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=79966 Do you think it would be too much to also add the roof trim? When I ordered the fencing that I am going to be making into porch railings I ordered the wrong kind at first and got the window's walk trim I was going to send it back and then got to thinking. I like it, but is it too much? Can there ever be too much? Just wondering your thoughts. Thanks hope you can see from the pictures if it will be too much or not.
