You know, I have no idea how I stumbled on to this little project. I ordered these little people from eBay.Then 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.
Then 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:
Carefully scored the corners and folded it and glued it into place. Then I carefully glued the little people into place.
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!
