The Wedding Cottage Dollhouse

I've received the battery light kit and I got back to work on the Wedding Cottage Dollhouse.
I did the concrete work on the outside. First layering it on.
I sculpt some rocks with an old exacto knife.
The front is all smoothed concrete.
The sides have rocks, smooth concrete, and timber.
The color is a light robin egg blue or Tiffany blue. I wanted this house to have that Tiffany box feel. Just not as dark.

I also worked on the wedding cake.
I used these round wood chips for the base of each cake in graduating sizes.
I used light weight spakle. It has the consistency of whipped marshmallow.
I dunked the whole thing in paint. It should be interesting when it dries.


  1. Me gusta mucho éste color!!!y el pastel de boda, te quedara espectacular!!

  3. Great choice in paint colour! I am interested to see how you form and paint/add the stone and timber sections... So far it's just lovely! I hope your cake turns out the way you like, it definitely looks like marshmallows right now! (hee hee)
