About Me

My photo
I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

MARBLE EFFECT

I wanted to show you the pillars I added to my kitchen in the Grosvenor Hall. I bought these unpainted and I wanted them to look like marble. So I first painted them in white (you may of course use another color of your choice) and then started to fiddle around trying to get that marble effect. But I did not like the result at all !! So again, I added more white paint and checked on my favorite help site www.miniatures.about.com about how to achieve that marble look.

I found what I needed, but ..... in the meantime, I went to a hobby store to buy something we needed around the house and as usual, I stopped at the color spray department. AND GUESS WHAT I FOUND, hehe

In fact, it's a spray called "marbling effect spray" and it's just great. But nevertheless I would recommend to practice a little bit before applying it to the final object, because you may quickly overdo it and then you'll have to start all over again. So keep practicing. The spray is available at most hobby stores.
