Betsy got started when she thought her two sons would benefit from a Barbie house. The boys promptly lost or destroyed all the little plastic foods that came with the set and Betsy felt compelled to make more.
She discloses her four very helpful rules of thumb: use translucent, look closely, use chalk pastels, go easy on the gloss. You can get more miniature tips on the CDHM.org site.
The little video of Betsy’s work totally charmed me. Enjoy the interview and link thanks to Eni Oken.
