As I was planning out the dollhouse I keep coming across wood stain and wood dye. Wood stain or wood dye? Aren’t they both the same thing?
Even though I researched how to dye and stain wood, today I actually learned how to dye wood with a foam brush. The results are something else!
Part two of what I happened when I dyed the dollhouse shingles.
While I may be a hair dying expert, I know nothing about how to dye dollhouse shingles. That’s about to change!
Like it or not, it’s time for me to learn how to identify dollhouse pieces. This was not a task for the faint of heart.
Even before I finished painting the exterior of the Keeper’s House, I was trying to learn how to sand dollhouse clapboard siding. Lots of fuzz, wood grain and who knows what was still stuck in the paint.
I didn’t really know much of anything about staining wood of any size. I’ve never done it! Thus, began the “how to stain small pieces of wood” quest.
I took a deep dive into glue to figure out what is the best glue for dollhouses and learn why I need to use different glues for different situations.
In researching how to paint a dollhouse exterior, I learned that there is no one best way to paint a dollhouse.
When it was time to paint my dollhouse I had to figure out what the best paint for dollhouses is. Not an easy task. It’s not like painting my actual house, which has drywall, wood, and other surfaces. The dollhouse I’m painting is plain old wood.
