About Me

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

DIY Quilling

Hi everybody

maybe some of you out there don't know much or maybe even anything about quilling ..... that was my case too, I had absolutely no idea what quilling even meant

I stumbled upon a video tutorial on youtube while searching on how to make miniature bowls and that's where I first learned about the quilling technique. It so happens that you can make wonderful things with this technique, not just in miniature

After watching a few tutorials and also after some more intense research on the Internet, I decided to give it try and ordered the few items I needed to get started

here's how my first quilled miniature bowls turned out .... quilling, shaping, adding some glue, painting, a coat of gloss and voilΓ 

well .... the quilling itself is of course a fiddly job, especially when you're making minis, but I guess every miniaturist will learn to use that technique quickly, because we're used to deal with tiny tiny things, aren't we


if you need help, you should check out some videos on youtube about quilling, 
there are a few helpful ones

I'll practice some more .... haha

See ya ...
