|The roof of the Tudor dolls house|
I stained the vertical timbers with wood stain. In between them, I made a white plaster effect by mixing white paint, PVA glue, artist's sand and talcum powder. It needed experimenting to get the right consistency but was really easy to apply.
Planked door and infill bricks in 1:12 scale
The front door is taken from a pattern in the beautiful book called Making Dolls' House Interiors by Carol and Nigel Lodder. It is balsa wood with vertical lines scored to give the illusion of planking. The hinges and door handle are metal ones, spray painted black.
