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.
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!
A while back, I messed up a project and got too much dye on it. If I had learned how to weather dollhouse shingles, I would have solved my problem!
One of the things I never thought about was paintbrushes. Or, more specifically, the best paintbrush for oil-based paint. In fact, when it comes to paintbrushes, I didn’t realize there were different kinds of paintbrushes.
In researching how to paint a dollhouse exterior, I learned that there is no one best way to paint a dollhouse.
Eventually, I’m going to have to glue the shingles on the dollhouse. I’m wondering if I should use wood glue or liquid nails. Is there a difference?
It’s almost time to get the wood floors ready. That means I have to stain or dye the wood strips. Which got me wondering, can you use Rit Dye on Wood?
