Finishing Touches Step-By-Step Instructions for Over 70 Projects by Jane Harrop

Create a range of beautifully detailed accessories for dolls' houses of every period and style. From tables, chairs and shelves, to letter racks, mirrors and coat racks, everything you need to make your dolls' house a home is here. Over 30 detailed, step-by-step, illustrated projects show how to make a variety of decorative accessories. Further illustrated variation ideas allow you to adapt the style or period of the project, and mix-and-match your favourite projects to suit your dolls' house. An illustrated section on the basic materials and equipment used offers practical guidance, while the basic techniques, such as working with wood, using glues, and varnishing, are illustrated with step-by-step photographs. Easy-to-use templates and diagrams are provided where necessary, including colour photocopying pages with a selection of pictures and patterns, and inspirational colour photographs show the accessories displayed in situ.

About the Author

Jane Harrop started making miniatures as a hobby nine years ago, when she made and demonstrated the projects at her local miniatures group - her enthusiasm turned this hobby into her job. She has been teaching adult education classes for the past five years, and has had articles published in Dolls' House World magazine. Jane sells her work through local miniatures fairs to both collectors and the trade, and also presents workshops at the miniatures fairs. Jane's first book, Dolls' House Do It Yourself: Toys and Games, is also published by David & Charles. Jane lives in Poynton, Cheshire.
