Trying Something Small 1:50 Scale

You know, I have no idea how I stumbled on to this little project. I ordered these little people from eBay.IMG_4224Then with a little gift from The Kid, I painted the figures. My eye sight seems to continue to improve, but this is some painstaking work and I need the magnification.

IMG_4223Then I simply built a little box – using paint stir sticks – to the size of all of them. I searched the internet for an appropriate photo, was looking for a 50’s era street scene, but I like the one I ended up using. I elongated it and then cherry picked the particular section of the photo:

Here are some close ups of my plastic citizens:

Let me assure you, going smaller in scale is not for me! In fact the 1:12 dollhouse that is so close to be completed isn’t even the best scale for me, but rather the 1:3 or 1:4 which is the American Girl doll-type sized dolls. So much easier!

But it was a fun exercise and was something that I could work on while waiting on the final pieces of the 1:12 dollhouse to arrive.

Hope you found this interesting!

  1. Very neat. I had to buy a big magnifier for the rare times I have been doing wire weaving. Fortunately for me, when I do mosaics………I can see everything pretty well.

    I love your creativity.
