Spring is in the air this month as we bring you a fresh magazine full of the most stylish miniatures – with a chic French twist. With a gentle nod towards all things Parisian, this month’s miniatures include projects like breakfast pastries, designer handbags and a knitted vintage-style suit. Plus, we’ve got techniques to show you how to create your own miniature mouldings to make your dolls’ house truly unique, and how to use metal clay to create an ornate 1:12 scale candlestick. In terms of inspiration, there’s a lot going on in this issue; we’ve got a behind-the-scenes interview with the Curator of a new dolls’ house exhibition in Bath, and we take a look inside a stunning 1:12 scale antique shop. With miniaturist profiles, reviews, prizes and ideas galore, look no further for the season’s most gorgeous miniatures.
