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 Clear Vanity/Soap/Shampoo bottles, clear version

As you probably remember, I recently posted pics of my first tries at making miniature bottles for my dollhouse bathroom and they turned out quite nice ... I think :-)

I made them with resin, the one that needs to harden over night and these are in fact really good

But the clear ones I made the 1st time were done with melted clear candle gel and unfortunately, this wasn't a very good idea. I had found it somewhere on the Net and wanted to give it a try, but once the emply pill capsules are filled, the melted gel hardens again, but still stays somehow bendable and a few days after I made the bottles, the gel started to just fall out :-(

So I made new clear ones, this time with resin and these are definitely much better

yeah :-)
