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

My French Bakery : Painting the exterior walls

After fiddling around for many years, I finally found a good trick to give the exterior walls of my miniature projects quite a realistic look.

After you've made a choice of color (preferably acrylic paint), give your walls one or two coats with a simple paint brush and let dry.

Then simply apply the last coat with a sponge. Depending on the final look you wish to achieve, you should choose what kind of sponge you're gonna use. In my next post, I will try to add a pic in which you can see the details more closely. I think that for an exterior wall, the texture can be a little bit more rough, but you may as well use the same technique for your interior walls

Have fun trying that out

See ya
