I never like those 3D wooden puzzle kits ( dinosaur skeletons, cars, dollhouses) when I was a little kid. I always broke pieces being impatient, and destroyed the finished skeleton playing with it later.
Now, as an adult with previous experience in most mediums, I can actually appreciate them.
I got the 3D wooden puzzle dollhouse furniture kit for $5 at micheal's. They are 1:24 or half scale, as are the dollhouses that they make. ( the fantasy villa and the gothic house i think) The first time, I left the tabs, and painted them a little childishly. So I got another set in order to get the most out of them.
I want to sculpt my own knobs, carve more intricate details, and remove all tabs before staining them. I personally love to make everything myself.
I am hoping you can contribute some examples of completed 3D puzzle kit projects - especially the dollhouses and dollhouse furniture! I need inspiration!
