Hi everyone, I have been busy building the Beacon Hill dollhouse.  This is my first build.  I have a question regarding paint for the inside and outside of the beacon Hill.  I bought Benjamin Moore eggshell finish paint that I have been using on the inside of the house.   My question is someone bought me Benjamin Moore paint for one of the rooms inside the house and for the outside of the house with a pearl finish and I was wondering if an eggshell finish is better especially for the outside of the house. Ant thoughts? Thank you all in advance.

Flat or eggshell finishes are best for painting miniature houses; finishes that have any  sort of glare or shine are not in scale.

Light reflects on the shiny surface, which emphasizes even small imperfections.

I like to use acrylic gloss paint for ceilings or because it reflects the light and makes the rooms brighter.  I also use it for trim work.
