New member introduction and first questions :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am happy to join this community of all things miniature.

A little about myself: I have a very creative mind. Ever since I was a kid, I collected toys and simulated battles or adventure stories. I think that miniatures helped me escape from reality and I was able to create my own world. However, growing up, I lost touch of this passion of mine. I hope to rediscover this passion by exploring other people's creative worlds.

First 2 questions: Where do you usually buy your miniatures and what do you look for ?

Welcome to the little family.   I make everything I put into my builds, and I find components in hardware stores, hobby shops, craft stores and thrift stores, sometimes restaurant table tops and parking lots.  The kits themselves I have gotten directly from Greenleaf, a couple from Hobby Builders Supply, a few in thrift shops, some that were already built with hot glue and falling apart.  I look for anything I can turn into something miniature.

Where? There are many on-line shops and a few brick-and-mortar shops. It depends on the need as to which shop is best. Many of us make furniture and accessories. For house kits, you can't beat our own Greenleaf store. :) 

What to look for? Whatever will fill a need. 

I'd suggest finding the house that catches your eye, and then listen to the house to see what paths it may take you down. With your creativity and imagination, who knows what glories you and the house will accomplish. :D

Scroll on down to the bottom of this page where it says "Theme v  Contact Us"; immediately below that it says "Greenleaf Doll House Kits"; click on that and you will go to the Greenleaf home page where you have a menu on the left side to access the store.

      I'm currently working on my first dollhouse. I bought this already assembled and have noticed there are hinges in the corners of most of the rooms (photos attached) some of which stick out quite  bit. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to hide these as I don't want them to show under my wallpapers. (it seems as if they were used to pull the corners of the dollhouse walls together)

      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).

      I have built a bunch of mini homes but I think the last one I did was over 4 years ago.  I really want to get back into it, I have tons of kits that I have great ideas for but I am feeling a little panic.  I just have not done this in so long I feel like I am going to screw it up somehow.  Starting with a Buttercup cottage for a 4 year old relative.  Looking for some good tips and maybe a few words of encouragement!
