Dollhouse Miniature Accessories - Glass Bottle

My love for the blue mason jars in real life gave me this inspiration to transform these dollhouse miniature accessories - 1/12 scale glass bottle. That beautiful shade of turquoise is irresistible. It's a colour that makes me happy, besides pink :) With the lack of readily made dollhouse miniature accessories in that delicate soft shade of turquoise drove me to make some my own.

White and turquoise is all I need.

Simple things like this makes my day.

It's quite strange, but sometimes miniature making lead me to deeper understanding to life and things. One of the things that I learnt from this experiment was, there was definitely more than one way to do this. I like to use whatever resources that I have around me.

Some people have used the food colouring method to colour their glasswares. Some people use the thinner, glass paints and baking method to achieve theirs. With no food colorings and oven in my home (I don't bake), I had to find my own way. It is definitely possible, and here's my results. I love it when I find more than one way to making things.
