Glue and Glaze from Deluxe Materials which is advertised as drying clear and therefore suitable for gluing windows. I find it does grab the plastic quickly and holds well, but it still shows if you get it on the panes. The advantage over tacky glue is that it dries crystal clear, so it's ok if just a little shows along the edge of the pane. But if you get it onto the main part of the pane, it still shows badly. And in fact I managed to screw up my first attempt at the windows and had to cut new ones from some packaging and try again. The handles are little gold beads that came with the kit.
And here is the cupboard on the mezzanine. For some reason the photograph has come out very grainy, perhaps not enough light in there.
I'm starting to feel that this house is almost 'done'. There is loads more that I could do, but the major construction is now all complete. I was trying to think what is still left to do:
- Arrange the furniture for the little girl's room and add further accessories such as curtains
- Find furniture for the little boy's room
- More accessories for the kitchen - look for these at fairs
- Make cushions for the window seat, garden chairs, and porch chairs
- More accessories throughout all rooms of the house, including possibly fake non-electric light fixtures and putting up the Miss Lydia Pickett framed pictures that came with some of the kits, towels in the bathroom etc..
- Glue on the missing skirting bits in the kitchen
But where would that leave all of you? I would feel like I was letting you all down if I don't post something each week for you to look at. On the other hand, you will all get bored pretty quickly if all that I am doing is adding the occasional accessory.
It's almost a question of philosophy: When is a dollshouse project actually finished?
