Perplexed about painting?

July 10th, 2009

We are often asked what kind of paint we recommend for finishing your Dolls House Emporium kit.

For woodwork, including windows, doors , stairs etc, a hobby paint such as ‘Plasticote’ is ideal, it’s available in spray or brush-on form from craft and DIY stores.

Interior and exterior walls are best done in a satin-finish paint as this can be wiped clean with a damp cloth if it becomes marked by fingerprints etc. Sample pots from DIY stores are a great way to obtain a small amount of your chosen shade.

For a textured stone effect paint ‘Sandtex’ is a great spray, available from DIY stores. Alternatively, try mixing a small amount of sand into your paint to create your own textured finish.

To avoid all exterior decorating, choose a house from our QuickStyle range, where all the hard work is done for you!

Our friendly customer services advisors are pleased to answer any decorating queries you may have, and can be contacted during office hours on 080 00 11 44 22.
