it's time for a new tutorial!
You might know, that the Tuxedo sisters love to play with dolls, so I made them a new doll house.
FIMO (in different colours)
FIMO liquid (but you can also use sugerglue later)
a pasta machine or a rolling pin
paper (for the measurements) & and a cutter/sharp knife for the FIMO
We will first draw the basic walls of the house onto paper and cut them out. I used the following measurements:
The front: 2,5 x 3 cm
Both side walls: 2,5 x 1,5 cm
The Bottom: 3 x 1,5 cm
Both roof parts: 3 x 1, 5 cm
And the inner ceiling: 3 x 1,5 cm
Cut them out.
Roll out a sheet of clay and place your measured house parts on it.
Here you see the front, the bottom and the two walls.
With the help of a sharp knife cut out all parts of the house. Now you can add a door and some windows.
I added the line for the later ceiling.
Carefully press the parts together.
Now add the inner ceiling.
Prebake the house for 10 minutes.
Roll out some red clay. Add the roof measurements and cut them out. Form the roof shape.
Because our roof should be closed in the front, carefully place the construction on a sheet of red clay.
Now cut around the edges, so you're having a nice closed roof.
Add a window if you want.
Carefully press the roof at your prebaked house.
Now you can use the FIMO liquid to fill in empty space between the house and roof. Or cou can add superglue later to give the roof a better hold.
Bake the house for another 10 minutes.
Let's make some dolls!
Form a tiny ball for the head. Carefully add some ears - you can use needle tools for that.
Form a simple body with feet and add a tail. Bake them.
Cut out very small sheets of brown clay and add them to the windows to get some blinds. Cut out a bigger one to have a door. Attach them to the house.
I added also a red border, but that's optional.
Yes, you see right - one of my window sheets is on the bottom :(. Unfortunatly it slipped while it was baking, so I can't remove it now :/.
Now make as many little furniture pieces like you want.
I make them really simple looking, but of course you can make them also more detailed. Add them to the house and bake the whole house again.
And you're finished :).
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
The Tuxedo's seem to like their new toy :D.
I'm sorry that I won't be able to post very often in the coming 5 weeks - I have to do lot's of Uni work, but I'm sure that I will do a few posts :).
Also the new bio's will be uploaded till end of this week.
I hope you're all feeling well and that you had a good start in 2015.
