flooring and door were treated with stain, shellac and beeswax to create
the look of a well-used Tudor interior.
The master of the house has left his clay pipe on the hearth. The dining room demonstrates a keen eye for detail. There is even a small 'churchwarden' clay pipe resting on the hearth and soot creeping up the chimney breast. It creates an authentic Tudor look - far away from a modern flatshare or luxury flat! It is all perfect for a doll's feast.
The chimney breast was built from thin balsa on a pine frame, coated with polyfilla, painted, and then smoked with a lighted candle.
The mantel was a piece of pine gouged and textured with a miniature craft drill, then stained and polished. The hearth was made from modelling clay treated with the drill in the same way as the mantel.
