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.

Witchcraft Manor

A few of you may remember that about a year ago I bought a doll  house from ebay with the intention of renovating it.
Well after dismantling it it has remained in a bag waiting for me to get around to it's restoration, witch I now have.
After some serious filling and sanding I blasted over the wood with pva glue mixed with water as a sealant then under coated the whole front in gray. I have some stone bricks to set over the top and grout to set them in.
The window frames and door frame I painted green with a gentle mottle to add a little depth.
The insides of the windows I painted dark gray. I will be adding glass to the windows at a later date.
I have been looking around for some dried moss to add between the bricks but the spring green I want is sold out on ebay and i'm not sure where else to look!
Using wire, ivy leafs and flower tape I created an ivy to grow around the doorway. So much to do but at least this is the start of the house I named Witchcraft Manor.
