Supplies

1/144 Miniaturists, Tips, and Tutorials

  • 1/144 Scratch Building Tutorials
    Anna-Carin Betzén has the most fabulous tutorials (in the DIY section) for scratch building a wide variety of furniture pieces. She also has needlepoint designs for two 1/144 rugs. Her tutorials are a wonderful gift to the 1/144 community and a constant source of inspiration to me.
  • Frances Armstrong
    Frances Armstrong’s work is very detailed and there are free instructions for a number of 1/144 projects (including toys, dolls, building a house from scratch and more). Please note that Frances passed away in January 2008 and her site is no longer updated.
