  1. Hi, I am currently working on my first dollhouse. It is an Alison Jr. I am hoping to handpaint and illustrate my own wallpaper and am not sure where to start. What paper is recommended? Also wondering if a seal, specific glue is required. I was hoping to make individual entire wall sized paintings (probably with watercolour paint) that will mount to the walls as wallpaper (and won't fade over time).
  2. From the album: Celeste's Album

    I am so excited about this wallpaper. It is a copy of the paper in the Gallier House sitting room right here in New Orleans. I purchased this wonderful paper from an Etsy seller, and can't wait to use it in my new house.
  3. Someone suggested newbies start a thread about their build and ask questions so that everything would be in one place for them as they work on their projects. Sounds like a great idea so here is mine. I am building the orchid with the intent it be a tea room or tea room and gifts shop. The exterior will be painted in a true Victorian color scheme of rose tones, cream/white, and gray. I wanted to paint my own Victorian house in this palette but the Victorian next door to me is painted orange, yellow and brown. Color clash with my pinks. I opted for greens, beige, cream with a deep red burgundy
  4. Okay, so, I have had a problem trying to find exactly the right wallpaper to use since I am going for a very specific theme for my house, and I am VERY picky. I did find a few scrapbook papers that were the right design, but the scale is off for the Fairfield. Then it occurred to me that I am a former graphic designer, and I could just create my own wallpaper designs exactly how I wanted them (DUH). My question is with scaling. I am not good at math, and don't know anything about wallpaper...so I'm wondering, aside from printing out a ton of samples and wasting a bunch of paper and ink to
  5. Okay guys. So, I've read hundreds of posts about this, but I'm still a bit confused as to when/how exactly to wallpaper this thing. Yes, I know it's personal preference, but most people seem to agree that because of the size and complexity of the Fairfield, that it's easier to wallpaper the walls before assembly. However, when you do this, doesn't it look strange in the corners where the walls meet since the paper won't be wrapped across the corner? And then won't the bay windows look strange as well because the edges won't be connected? Also, if you wallpaper before assembly, how do you
  6. I decided to go with "wallpaper mucilage" to apply the wallpaper. It looked fine on the wall at first. Then after about 6hrs it is all wavy and bubbly. So Im trying to find out what I did wrong and if there is a way to fix it or if I need to just buy more paper and tear that attempt out. Does anyone have any advice to offer? Maybe I put too much paste on ?!
  7. Since @Sharebhas asked about scaling wallpaper, I have heard others say they use Paint, or Photoshop to make their own paper. I am wondering if there is a tutorial on this site or another place? I have Paint and Photoshop Elements, but don't use them enough to be proficient.

  9. From the album: Sweet Cypress Cottage

    In this photo you can see the beginnings of the Sweet Cypress interior. It isn't furnished, but the inside is *mostly* finished (a few things here and there need doing!). You can also see that, flanking either side of the house, I have started work on custom and kit-based additions. To the left, there is the cellar door facade (there's no cellar below just a trick of the eye); the scratch base and planks are assembled but not painted or weather yet. On the right, you can see the french doors (with no knobs!) leading out to a patio-esque platform. The small porch-looking structure is the base o
  10. Hello fellow miniature enthusiasts! I recently just picked up my first greenleaf dollhouse kit, and I am unclear about a few things. Do I apply wallpaper, paint, siding and carpet to the house before it is assembled? Any input is very much appreciated. Thank you!
  11. CJN Miniatures in Edmonds, WA recently moved to a new store at 23030 Hwy 99. It is a yellow 2-story building between Les Schwab & Public Storage.

  12. From the album: Fairfield Build

    And so the looooooong build begins! All the wall paper (apart from the deep purple/navy - which is a textured wrapping paper) is from Brodnax Prints (http://brodnaxprints.com) in half inch scale.On the 3rd level/attic level I'm dividing it up into 4 rooms (hall way, laundry, bathroom and 3rd bedroom) so I'm still not sure where I'm placing the wall yet and therefore I'm going to wait to wall paper this section.

    From the album: French Bedroom

    I don't like the brown wallpaper. I think I am going to plaster/stucco the walls instead. I'd really like to brick them but that is a lot of work and I'd have to find the right color to go with the pink on the bed.

    Paper Removal

    From the album: Little Shop of Horrors

    Okay, so sometimes you can peel off wallpaper. In this case, it was too brittle and had too much paste. A little mixture of fabric softener and water plus a stiff bristle brush and some elbow grease and it all falls away...
  15. From the album: My Latest Mini Finds

    <p>So she wanted to keep her little totes, so I packed all of the wallpaper into one box. This was at LEAST 60 pounds. I made it to the threshold of my front door before the box split. Funny thing is that there is another box full of paper.</p>

  16. From the album: Eternity Point

    This is the proposed wallpaper for the downstairs coffee shop, book shop and hobby shop. Still debating whether to use the same paper all over. The floor paper isn't large enough and will have to be joined somehow - suggestions are welcome!

  17. From the album: My Orchid

    I cut out the soft cream-colored cardstock I bought yesterday at Michael's. It's not glued down yet, I have to assemble the window and door trim and see how much space they'll take up.
  18. From the album: My Orchid

    Trying out the bedroom wallpaper. I'm afraid it might be too overpowering, but if so, I'll just add a white retaining wall underneath. And maybe just do the slanted roof part in the wallpaper. (Technically, scrapbook paper.)
  19. From the album: Christmas Surprise for our niece

    A full shot of the Duracraft Newberg interior. Wallpapered with Minigraphics Wallpaper Mucilage from Hobby Lobby with a foam brush - for my first time, I'd say it went rather well. What is left? Baseboard, Chairrail and the wood flooring that my husband is going to cut at work :-) Mitering 101 for me!

    Rooster Kitchen

    From the album: Christmas Surprise for our niece

    The downstairs kitchen, sans flooring, to be done this week. Placed tracing paper inside and creased with finger, made cuts with Xacto knife where corner posts existed, then transferred to thin tagboard. Once the wood is cut, will attach to tagboard with adhesive photo squares (that I used for the Houseworks carpet). That way flooring can be pulled out easily (theoretically). Waiting for baseboard and chairrail - and saving up for LED lights!

    Almost ready to go together.
