Humble Cottage Dollhouse

A bit of progress on humble cottage.
 I made a fake little basement shutter from bits of left over wood.
Made a nice size front stoop.
Added concrete and sculpted some stone shapes into it while it was still moist.

Painted the stones.
The front is a mix of stones and stucco. All done with the same concrete.
And this side is stucco too.
I did the floor white with a lot of water to thin it out.
I was only going to do one wall of roses, but things change!
For the door, I used hot glue to outline a design. Then painted it cream and accented with gray. I then took a utility knife and sandpaper to super age it.
The top of the outside turned out great with this nice chunk coming off.
I have to hinge the door in place and add knobs. Then maybe a bit more aging. Thanks for coming over!

  2. Wat een leuk idee om zo een stenen muur te maken. Het wordt een mooi geheel.

  5. Love how you used the hot glue to make a design. I have never thought of that, totally brilliant. Looking forward to seeing how she all turns out.
