Doll House Painting Guide

Before you paint your dolls house read our doll house painting guide to make sure you get everything right.

First of all if you are building a dolls house from a kit it is much easier to paint the outside of your dolls house before you put the house together. You should also cut grooves in your house to run your electric wires for your lighting before you paint and build your house (take a look at our lighting guide for more information on this).

You should always use a matt, non-acrylic based paint. Most matt paints you use on your own home and can get from your local DIY store are fine to use for dolls houses. You can also get specialist paints especially for your dolls house. These specialist paints are designed to be very easy to use and to provide a very good finish when used for dolls houses.

Once you have decided on the colours for your dolls house you should apply the paint using a small sponge radiator roller, which you can also get, from a DIY store. You don’t need a primer but you will probably need two coats of paint. Make sure you don’t put the paint on too thickly.

If you are painting your dolls house kit before you put it together you may also want to paint the dollhouse ceilings ready for decorating.

When doll house painting if I am using a smooth matt paint I always use a small radiator roller to get a really smooth finish.If you want more information on choosing doll house paints Click doll house painting
