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).

In the George Mason home, Gunston Hall, the handpainted wallpaper in the dining room is inset into the panelled walls.  If you can find a fine-tooth finish watercolor paper that would look in scale when done, you can seal the finished painting with a mat acrylic aerosol art sealer and hang it with wallpaper paste (I would paste the flat primed wall and gently lay the paper in place).

WOW thanks so much. That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure if it would paste properly. I will definitely do some tests first but thanks so much for the advice.

      Hello! 

      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)

      Thanks!

      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!
      Thanks!
