    Interior walls

    From the album: San Fran 555 Build

    I skinned the interior walls with 2.7mm (7/64") plywood. It matches up nicely with the long frames. I'll just need to spackle the small gaps and I will have smooth walls for finishing.
  2. I have no idea how the 2 room partitions go in! There is nothing in the instructions about it.. or at least no pictures. Anyone that built it able to explain it? =( So frustrated with it. They aren't great instructions pretty sure I messed up some of the strips but oh well
  3. From the album: ~ Beacon Hill ~

    Here are the assembled wall pannels, after the stain is applied they'll have to lay down flat with weight on top for about 2-3 days until completly dry. I'm including this shot in case anyone is interested in trying something like this, I didn't use a lot of materials as you can see but they still look pretty realistic after put together. It's all basswood so they'll get a stain treatment, you can see a test sample for the color I used on a small piece of wood. Also included the stains I use, the bottle is the premixed stain (water based) and in the jar a mix with satin varnish finish. I apply them with a paintbrush and let it dry for over a day so the color will be evenly spread after absorbed by the wood, then another day or 2 to let the top varnish dry. I use the same method for the stairs, windows, doors etc.
  4. Hello all! I'm trying desperately to figure out how to add texture to my interior walls. Reading up on Craftsman homes they were usually lathe and plaster so the texture wasn't perfectly smooth like drywall (or a dollhouse MDF wall). I've read about people adding sand to their paint in order to recreate an imperfect texture but I'm not sure how well that would work in miniature. The scale wouldn't be quite right I think. I've thought about using some spackle on the walls before I paint them, but I'm unsure how to get the scale right in the texture. Any suggestions? I really want the walls to have some interest. Here's what I'm working with as far as walls and windows.
  5. The walls of a dollhouse I am building warped or buckled After I put some stuff on the smooth them out. They are outer walls...should I replace them or just prop them up. Nothing cracked but seems to be a bit wavie. The walls were pieced together and glued in place. It is almost done both floors are in..anyone else have this problem?
  6. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    Many rustic buildings in Québec have a thin vertical wood cladding on their exteriors that I adore the look of. Of course, the fictional Aucoin family is in Thorny Rock, Maine now, but I think over the years they might have decided to re-side their sugar shack—maybe when they added the shop on—and they might have craved a bit of home when they did so. So the shack and the shop are both sided in this thin cladding. I got the look with thin bamboo strips—bamboo placemats are fairly inexpensive, they have strips of just the right scale, and they come in many colors so you might find exactly what you want for your next mini project without even needing to stain. For this project, I wanted the look of dark, uneven, and super-weathered wood, so first I covered the structures in multicolored strips, placing various shades of darks and lights randomly on all the walls...
  7. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The shop's floor is done in a bit of scale random-width pine flooring I had leftover from another project, and the walls are done in beadboard panelling. I wanted the shop to have a warm, honeyed look that contrasts nicely with the slightly grungy look of the work room, stays true to the woodsy nature of any maple-sugaring business, and makes mini visitors want to buy buy buy all those maple goodies!
  8. From the album: Ktchen (Room Box)

    Took pictures of RL studs, wiring and plumbing. DH provided bits and pieces of electrical wiring and copper wire. Painted blocks of wood blue for electrical boxes.
  9. I'm assembling the interior walls of my first build. Last night I glued walls together for the first time. I believe I got a good solid bond. Seems strong! Because there was no way to clamp the wall to the floor while gluing (I used masking tape), there are very small cracks here and there in the joints (corners) where the walls meet and where the walls meet the floor. How concerned should I be about this? Should they be filled with wood filler, more glue, ignored and papered over, or covered with baseboards and crown molding? What do you think? In a real house this is where the caulk would go.
  10. I had seen these before but couldn't remember where...found them today at Walmart. They are plastic texturing tiles for texturizing cake icing. Of course, I will not be making any fancy cakes No time for such silly things...I will be experimenting paperclay and these lovely little jewels. http://www.duff.com/...k-texture-tiles Sorry, no pic yet but I will let you know if this works. I bought the brick and wood flooring look ones as well as the cobblestone pack. They were $5.97 each (two styles in a pack) at Wally World. I am also going to experiment with my Cricut Cuttle Bug thingie and heavy paper. I'm thinking I can use these to emboss paper that way, therefore giving me some lovely brick or cobblestone textured paper. Fingers crossed. The only drawback I can foresee is that these are only about 7 1/2" x 6". I will need to do things in sections and pattern match a bit. *update...found a good pic of the brick tile. http://www.envisionc...dantmoulds.html Still digging around...
