Small objects for small worlds bringing big fun to railroad, dollshouse, diorama hobbyists and collectors

"Do you know of the world where the people are not as tall as we are? No I'm not talking about dwarfs, gnomes, pixies, leprechauns, elves. Just people, but not as tall. They live in worlds not as big a our world. Their worlds fit into attics, sheds, small rooms and spaces.
And they have factories where things are made which are not as big as our things. And off course there are shops where Miniaturians buy their goods. Just that the shops are not as big as ours.
This online Etsy shop sells some of those goods from a special factories. These factories use the finest materials and the latest production techniques."

The items are created in 3D printed plastic. Objects are created in thin layers, layer by layer using laser sintering or multijet. With these techniques it is possible to obtain miniature items with amazing detail and realism.
Then the items are painted by hand by me. The miniatures can be used directly in a scene or added to a collection. This makes them a nice gift for miniature loving friends and relatives.

You can give them any look afterwards. Brand new or dusty and worn, it's up to you! You can use all of the known weathering methods using chalks and acrylic paints and varnishes. If you don't know these methods then check them out online on Google or YouTube.
The items can be glued or assembled using hard plastic glue (cement suitable for PVC). Note that standard modeling cements (i.e. Revell Contacta or UHU Plast) do not work very well.

I strive to create unique items with details that give them convincing realism. Objects to complement any scale scene, be it a model railroad, a terrarium, a diorama, a dollshouse or a miniatures collection.
If you are looking for anything specific don't hesitate to ask. You can use the Etsy Conversation system (Convo) or apply for a custom order.

    Hi! I own this little business in the attic... Selling painted, highly detailed miniatures pays for making more of these fun miniature things! Designed by me, 3D printed and then painted by me.

    The manufacturer does the part of the creative process that is not possible in other ways, or to do by myself for that matter. Their technique allows for unique items with detail that often amazes me.
