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.

1.12 scale Gothic bed

For a while I have envisioned a 1.12  scale Gothic bed that i'd like to make. So using the head board and foot board from a broken bed I made templates then cut from balsa wood and covered in fabric after stuffing with cotton wool.
I made four posts from card then covered also in fabric. At the bottom I used balls that need to be painted black and resin skulls to top them off.
Once attached to the sides I left to dry properly. Loads more to do but thought you may like a sneak peak.
