"Hi Sarah, Pleased you like the chair(s). The shirt was a good quality cotton one from M&S. Only a £ in a charity shop. The weave is visible in extreme close-ups.  I carved the balsa cushion out a bit to give the impression of wear.…"

"There are many more on eBay USA.  Need to search ebay UK as well.  If they are 1:12 dollhouse scale they will be too small, but if they are one-off toys to no particular scale, one might work out, and save a lot of making time.   "

"This is for Monsterous Murders, right? Yes, I spread Apoxie Sculpt over styrene foam to get a leather look on my two 1:6 scale chairs. The chairs had a hard surface, the upholstery doesn't sink down if a puppet sits in it, which could be a…"

Hello to you all! :)We are building a victorian cottage set at a scale of 1:7. We are unsure as to what to make an armchair and a range (Victorian cooker/oven) out of.Our first thoughts were to make them out of Sculpey since we are familiar with it and its pretty easy to sculpt and bake.. not too sure if this is the best material though and if we were to go ahead with that, it would need to be bulked…See More

"About aging/dirtying up the cloth - I find if you use watered-down acrylic paint on cotton it stiffens up nicely and then you have less problems with unwanted chatter. "
