Fine Scale Miniatures for Dollhouses

Fine scale miniatures can be found in a wide variety of places.

Plus people online have some fantastic illustrations to share with us.

Even though railroad designs are not entirely what my audience are seeking they do have a similarity. Plus we can use what they or anyone else does to aid in our own creative results.

Here is a site that has an awesome display for us all to see.

Getting back to using things you see as tools to create....

Fine Scale Miniatures start in the simplest places.I love looking at any craft pattern in front of me and beginning to imagine it in mini. Just about anything you encounter as far as that is concerned can be miniaturized.

So when you're out and about at craft fairs and the like, let you imagination go to see just where and what you too can miniaturize.

I say where because some places just cry to be in mini. Like for instance some cities. New York is one of my favs. However I haven't as yet miniaturized it. That would be a daunting task to say the least.

Fine scale miniatures come in different sizes:

  • Playscale - which is for fashion dolls like Barbies (2 inches = 1 foot)

  • 12 inch houses - a very popular doll house size. Other terms used: one inch, 1:12, 1/12 (1 inch = 1 foot)

  • Quarter inch - becoming increasingly more popular because of its convenient size (1/4 inch = 1 foot)

  • Half inch is for fashioning railroad designs or miniature structures (1/2 inch = 1 foot)

  • War Games Miniature sizes include: 25mm, 6mm, and 30mm. Depending on what kind of house you are designing.... these could be incorporated into your design say if you were making a castle or something similar.

Fine scale miniatures are a personal choice.Creation in your mini world is in the eye of the beholder.

Whatever takes your fancy is not unrealistic or stupid or uncreative or not to be pursued. In other words, it's all up to you. Not anyone else.

And I think that's the best news of the day. That you can do what and how you desire. Let your imagination be your guide. You can only win by doing.

Until next time... The sky's the Limit.
