premo Sculpey Mini Doll House

premo Sculpey Mini Doll House

Read More

Make a mini dollhouse for your dolls or as personalized gift complete with itsy-bitsy furniture. I used Sculpey Soufflé for the roof and roof tiles since it makes the structure very strong but light. By using different clays, it will look as though different parts of the house were made using different materials, just like a real house! The windows are made using Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay which allows light to pass through it. You can also use different premo Sculpey Accents to simulate pearl-effect floors and granite kitchen counters. Dollhouse is like an ongoing collage project so keep adding mini accents to give it more character and detail.

Project Instructions
Print out the mini dollhouse schematics and cut the individual pieces out. Roll out Sculpey III using the Sculpey conditioning machine at number 5. Place the sheet of clay flat on the tile. Use a blade to cut out the shapes. Roll out premo Sculpey Accents pearl into a thicker sheet (number 3)for the ground floor. You can also roll out ‘wood’ patterned clay for the first and second floor.
Use a small square cutter to cut out ‘windows’ on the front wall.
Your roof can be in any colour since you will be covering it with tiles anyway but make the side walls using identical clay/colour with the front house wall. Use Sculpey Soufflé for the roof.
Fill the cut-out windows with Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay. Use an oval cutter to cut out a Sculpey Soufflé door for your dollhouse. Trim it into a door shape and stick it on using Sculpey Bake and Bond. Roll out a small piece of Sculpey Soufflé clay for the door-knob.
Bake everything to harden.
When your pieces have cooled down on the tile, carefully use a blade to remove them from the tile. Identify your pieces and start assembling.
Stick the 1st and 2nd floor on using PVA glue and Sculpey Bake and Bond. Apply PVA glue only to the middle part only (where you are applying the glue) since it will dry quickly and help ‘tack’ the parts together.
After the PVA glue has dried, glue on the 2 side walls exactly the same method in Step 7(keep the bottom edge flush with the bottom edge of the front wall). After the glue has dried, use just Bake and Bond to glue the whole house to the ground floor piece. Glue the front roof using the same method in Step 7.
Finally, glue the back roof using the same method in Step 7.
Roll out Sculpey Soufflé using the Clay Conditioning machine on number 6. Use a very small round cutter to cut out the roof tiles. Spread Bake and Bond on the roof and stick on the tile pieces on the bottom row first.
Stick the tiles in an overlapping-pattern. Do it until you have covered the whole roof surface.
Cover the back roof with tiles and bake everything again. This will set/harden the Bake and Bond and roof tiles.
After the house has been baked for the second time, it is now time to gloss the windows using Sculpey Gloss. Let the gloss dry and the house is now ready!
To make a kitchen unit, roll out 4 pieces of clay on the thickest setting on the clay conditioning machine. Stack them up together.
Cut out a small rectangular shape and hollow out a part for the sink
Use a needle to draw out cupboards directly onto the clay. Add some handles for the cabinets. Bake to harden
Roll out a piece of premo Sculpey Accents in graphite for the kitchen counter. Spread Bake and Bond to stick the clay to the surface of the kitchen unit.
Trim around the kitchen unit and it is nice to have a slight overhang on the front and sides of the kitchen unit.
Using an x-Acto knife or surgical blade, cut out the clay to reveal the sink. Use premo Sculpey Accents in silver to make a faucet and stick it directly onto the kitchen counter with the help of Bake and Bond. Bake to set.
To make sofas, roll out Sculpey III on the thickest setting. Stack 2 layers together and use a small square cutter to cut pieces out. Press the sides slightly to ‘soften’ the edges. You can also use a diamond cutter to make a coffee table. Just cut one smaller diamond and place a bigger diamond on top.
Roll out some clay on the thickest setting. Cut out a square and cut it into half. Place it on the back of the sofa.
Roll out some snakes and cut them into pieces to make the arm rest. Bake and set
Roll out a piece of Sculpey Soufflé on the thickest setting and cut out a small rectangle. Roll out a thinner piece and trim to fit as the bed’s headboard.
Cut out another piece of Sculpey Soufflé as a mattress to fit on top of the base. Make a pillow using Sculpey Soufflé in white.
Roll out a piece of white and pink clay on the thinnest setting. Press them together and fold the top over.
Place the blanket directly onto the mattress and press the sides to take shape of the mattress. Bake and set.
Roll out some Sculpey III clay on number 6 and cut out small circles and ovals for the dining chairs. Cut out a square piece (rolled out on number 5) for the dining table top.
Roll out some clay into snakes, a thick one for the dining table and thinner ones for the chairs. You can also extrude them out if you want a more consistent diameter. Bake to harden.
Since the legs are already hardened, chop them up into equal lengths. Use Bake and Bond to stick it directly onto the dining table top (legs sticking on top like an upside down table). Bake and set.
Stick the ovals on top of the round shape using Bake and bond to make the dining chair. Bake and set. Chop up the chair legs into equal lengths and use Bake and Bond to glue on the legs to the chairs. Bake and set.
Once the dining tables and chairs are baked, sand the bottom of the legs evenly so that the chairs and table can stand by itself.
