I thought learning how to make polymer clay tiles then making polymer clay tiles myself would be easy. I could not have been more wrong. Part 2 of my misadventures.
After my success with DIYing the wood floor, I figured I would find equal success teaching myself how to make polymer clay tiles for the dollhouse. This was not remotely the case.
Part 3 of the story. Installing a dollhouse floor is not an easy task. But if you follow a plan and are willing to improvise anything is possible!

Laying a dollhouse wood floor isn’t easy. But, it’s not impossible either, if you use the right glue and practice a lot of patience!
I though that finishing the floorboards for the second floor would be easy. I could not have been more wrong!
Today’s adventure was attaching the dollhouse stair stringer. Like most things, I did it “not right,” but learned some interesting things along the way.
My original plan was to wait until I had cut all the strips then dye them in one big batch. My thought was using the Rit dye bath would create a lot of dye, and I didn’t want to waste it. But, then I figured there’s no time like the present. I’m not finishing the cutting anytime soon, and I might as well run this little experiment and see how it turns out.
One of the biggest problems I have with dollhouse building is the technical details. Take, for example, identifying wood grain.
There are tons of things to know if you use acrylic paint for wood crafts. It’s not as easy as grabbing a brush and going to town on your project!
