Oh Katara, that's GORGEOUS. I'm glad you put the matchbox in there for reference, the house is a lot smaller than I realised! All the details are amazing, the furniture, the dolly, the walls and floors.... but the exterior! Oh wow.... I love love LOVE the clock tower. And the front door.... and the brickwork....  Well done!

So what's next?  Grin

I <3 this thread so much. I can't tell you how much I love all the different interpretations of the same structures! I completely agree with the insane structure thing though, I never did get any of those teeny bits that 'support' the attic floor to fit properly so I gave up on them. And the verandah.... gah! You get it fit on one side, and the other pops off, you fix THAT and the first side lets loose  Cry

I adore the starry night ceiling, that's one of my favourite paintings ever... and you've tied in the TARDIS! The subsect of geeky miniaturists is growing :>  The wee dormer in my attic has a crack in the universe Grin

Awesome job on both houses, you've included so many different techniques....the ceilings, the floors, the overall concepts....I can't wait to see more!


There it is, put together as a dry run.  What an insane structure by the way, a million pieces including two pieces of trim that just didn't want to stay in one piece so they got wood glued for their troubles.

The bedroom ceiling, kind of reminds me of "Starry Night" which is perfect since one of the downstairs room is getting a TARDIS.

Absolutely awesome! I love the transformation from the sparkly 'pretty' bakery to this kind of industrial haunted house look. The Children Welcome sign with key is brilliant...and I <3 the raven Cheesy  Well done! Now how do I vote for you?

@Madra, I love your stained glass! How did you do it? The bricks look great, too! A sponge would probably be easier than the stencil now that I think about it.

I have a friend who crochets doll clothes and doll bassinets. There's some kind of heavy clear plastic she buys at the fabric store to use as a base for the bassinet and she gave me the scraps to use for windows. I have NO idea what the plastic stuff is called, just that it comes in squares. The product I used was a little stained glass kit from Michaels that came with a tube of leading and about 8 little pots of different coloured glass paints. The leading didn't work very well for tiny lines so I just used a black Sharpie. The glass paint is so thick you can dab it where you want it and it stays there really well. Some of the designs I did by hand and others I traced directly onto the plastic. It looks SO much prettier in person than in the pictures.  Also, I used sticky backed foam for window frames and just stuck them directly to the painted interior walls with the plastic sandwiched between. Initially this held really well but I'm finding a couple months later some of the frames are starting to come away.

I do love the stone effect of the sponge...my advice though would be to give yourself some faint pencil guide marks so you don't go TOO far astray like I did Cheesy  It's also a great way to use up some of the tail ends of paint we all have kicking around! And thanks for the lovely comments...means a lot coming from someone whose work I admire!

@Ashgrim, I did the castle up for my grandkids and it's holding up pretty well. If you're on Pinterest, here's the link to what I did http://pinterest.com/marion1mb/castle-geekery/  I used a sponge to make the bricks and I love the way that turned out, very quick and easy once I figured out what I was doing Smiley

Nice to meet you Ravens Snow and welcome! I don't think it's ever too late for this particular project, people seem to start and complete projects and start new ones all the time! I'm beginning to suspect this mini thing might be addictive, and possibly contagious....

I'm so sorry about the fire, that must have been devastating Sad I'm glad you've decided to start again, your two projects sounds wonderful and I can't wait to see your pictures!
