My misadventures and progress in making dollhouse miniatures...and a little bit of my life thrown in for flavor.

Here is the front door after aging. The sealer is still drying so it won't be as shiny as in the pictures. I painted it a base coat of Cardinal Red (Americana brand acrylic paint), then sanded it and highlighted some of the age marks with watered-down white stain. The handle is made out of 20-gauge jewelry wire that I hammered flat, bent to form a handle, and hammered the two ends to make them wider and rounder. I'll try to get a close-up. The "lock" is just a crimp bead that I hammered flat. The back of the door looks the same only without the hinges. Don't mind the gap around the door; I'm going to frame it around the brick so you don't see the ugly parts.
