First, I started with a few sketches to get an idea of the size, as I wanted the two rooms to be the same size as I am now limited by space to display all my projects. There are now 7 buildings to display....
Then I started cutting the different walls, windows and doors and prepared the mouldings. There were so many in that room!
Then I painted all the elements, primer first, then orange, then white, then aged the different walls with acrylic.
Then the building process started. At this step, I only use adhesive tape to put the walls together so it's easy to separate the walls if needed.
Then I made the floor on white acrylic, using my old technique of the stencil.
Then I assembled everything
and added some furniture to get an idea. My favourite moment, lol.
I have ordered decorations for the walls and the ceiling but it will take 2 or 3 weeks before I get them.
Now some pictures to give you an idea of what the room looks like. Actually, the colour of the wall is lighter but my camera doesn't give the right tone.....
... I made a chandelier as the ones you can buy are too expensive for me, LOL
Now a view of "la salle a manger"
The table has been laid for two,
and there are some flowers in the empty niche.
The room is lit by a stripe of LED warm white, (don't buy "cold" white, the light is blue!) hidden by the frame.
I need to fing a 12W dimmer the reduce the brightness.
I know I am not very good at explaining how I do, but if you have any questions, please, let me know and I'll try to explain how I work. My tools are a cutter, a special scissor to cut mouldings at different degrees, UHU glue because I use plastic, paints in spray and acrylic for ageing, that's about all I use.
Have a great weekend and keep in touch...
