The new dolls house is going to be set in the 1920’s and I’m taking my time to source materials for its debut on Instagram sometime soon…
I was sorting out some bits and bobs and found a bag of dominoes… I had sketched out a large fireplace and rather spookily I thought these dominoes might suit as tiles and voila… they fit exactly!
So I stuck them on my drawing and once dry added a little decoration and finally a coat of varnish.
The other one was also a fluke of luck, I had bought some little wooden frames, painted them all gold and will get some chain to hang them… but that’s another story. The frames came in a little wooden box and … yes you’ve guessed it … it was exactly the right size!
I drew on the shape of the grate and the surrounding tiles. Painted it with thick acrylic paint, to add definition of tiles I scored into the paint.
Once the dark colour was dry I added white.
The coals are a gel paint mixed with paper cut shapes and then mixed with red glitter glue…
That’s them done – can’t wait to get them in the house! I’ll be showing them in situ at a later date.
