The monumental disasters of doll housing 2

Hello all. just a quick post to let you all know I am trying to comment on your blogs (not to mention reply to comments on my own) and it just doesn't want to work. I have tried to find answers but you know how it goes. Anyway, I will try to work something out.

So you'll notice the title of the post being monumental disasters part 2. This was the next disaster:



See my nice white toilet and the yellow bath? Sigh. I suspect I put too much triple thick on at once and it yellowed as it dried. So I had to sand then paint white then new varnish. It doesn't look great, the surface is quite textured, but at least it is white. And it is tucked inside so hopefully the rough surface won't be very noticeable. I also filled the indentations where the kit taps usually attach. 

Also American Miniaturist is running a series of techniques articles from this month onwards using my Nutcote kit! Quite exciting!




Have a great day everyone. It is another hot one here and I want to get a little laser cutting done before it gets too hot. Will post Coxwolds progress very soon! X
