Turning back time….

When a very good friend gave me a dollhouse – (and yes if you know about me and my miniature passion you’ll get just how happy that made me) it included fixtures, fittings, lots of bits & bobs and an old man…
He looked like this though he had ‘real’ hair  1

For an upcoming storyline I have a need for a handsome young man so with the help of some marker pens, acrylic paint and glue I set about turning back time…

I removed his white hair. Then coloured in his eyebrows.  I added a rather dashing tash…


To make his new hair I mixed up some acrylic paint and UHU glue, once nice and tacky I started to add it to the perfectly smooth bald pate.
I added it in thin layers and moved it with a cocktail stick to give a bit of texture.

Well, I think he’s looking a bit of a dish actually, do you?

Next time I have some spare time I aim to make him a shirt – look at this clip. Truly inspiring miniature tailoring!

Thanks for reading, back next week,
Love Rosie
