Mushroom Forest Dollhouse Plates Completed.

I finished the second set of plates that I plan to use in my 1:12 scale kitchen. Even though the clay turned out a little more tan than beige, I think I am really quite satisfied with the finished product. 🙂 I had a lot of fun making my plates, and I’d really like to make more, but I recently decided it was high time I tried to work on my handmade BJD project again, so currently my workspace is tied up. Normally I wouldn’t mind having more than one project going at once, but considering the BJD I am … Continue Reading →

My progress on 1:12 scale polymer clay plates

I finished my first set of plates today, and they are the ones you can see in the picture. I hand painted the design and glossed them up so they look glazed. I have a total of 6 “Spring Green” plates and bowls which is the design above, and I am only keeping 3 of each, so I think I will be offering these for sale, but I don’t plan to put them up on etsy until I finish my “Mushroom Forest” plates and perhaps make some 1:12 scale table runners to match. I’ve been way into polymer clay as … Continue Reading →

Dolly/Dollhouse Find.

I saw a tip on Youtube that told of miniature cookie cutters in a packet of mini buttons at Michael’s, so I went out looking for them in the afternoon and ta-da I found them. This set is a Xmas set and is mostly mini buttons, which isn’t a bad thing if you like to make clothes for Brownies, PukiPukis or Lati Whites. The really awesome thing though is the miniature cookie cutters that come with the set that you can see shining silver in the packet. These cookie cutters aside from being good miniature fodder have the potential to … Continue Reading →

Making 1:12 Scale Polymer Clay Dishes

I felt like making a set of custom dishes for my 1:12 scale dollhouse, so after reviewing some tutorials online I played around with creating some plates and bowls. I ended up having a lot of fun and sorta getting in the zone while creating these that I ended up making quite a lot. XD At this point all of the plates and bowls have been fired and I’m working on sanding and refining them. The beige plates turned out a little darker after firing than I wanted. I was aiming for more of an off-white plate, so I may … Continue Reading →

Chair Refurbishment Project

If you remember from a previous post, I said I was working on rehabbing a couple of pieces of dollhouse furniture. Well today I finally finished up the refurbishment on the chair and I feel I was pretty successful! It took a little experimentation to get it the way it is now, and it has a few flaws, but overall I’m pleased and I also learned a lot about making miniature furniture as well. You can read on behind the cut to see the different phases of construction and how I worked through some issues. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this … Continue Reading →
