Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

My 1:12 scale kitchen

I have given my sink unit a few coats of matt varnish to seal the wood and am now making the front with doors. In the mean time I have started making the washing machine. I have used a small plastic tub with some tiny dolls clothes in set with the scenic water I bought for the drum. I think it works well. I then built the body using balsa wood and intend to paint it with a white gloss finish. I also need to make a ring to go around the doors opening giving the look of the washer door and buttons for the front of the machine.
