Excellent Exteriors!

January 7th, 2015

The exterior of your dolls’ house is often the thing you look at most once it’s on display, so it makes sense to invest in time and the appearance of it. Whether you have a perfect period piece, a more contemporary style or something eclectic, the exterior of your dolls’ house can be dressed to match.

From door furniture to real brick compound finishes you can achieve an extremely detailed final result.

This delightful lion door knocker would look super on the front of a Georgian manor or you could put it on your modern home as a ‘reproduction’ piece. Moving up the house, chimney pots in the traditional terracotta finish inspire images of Bert jumping over roof tops in Mary Poppins and on a dolls’ house they give a realistic ‘topping off’ to your miniature home.

For your front panels, the brick compounds and stencils are unbeatable. Paint your panels in a suitable shade for your mortar first, then mix up the compound and use the stencils to apply the compound in a regimented pattern, once it all dries you’ll have panels which look like they’ve actually been built with miniature bricks!
