How to...

I've promised you to write the miniature tips in english too, so here it is.

How to create a miniature scene, that everybody would like to live in.

1. Start with making a detailed story about the miniature scene and the people in it.
Ask yourself:
  • Who are these people?
  • Where do they live?
  • What are their jobs?
  • What are their hobbies?
  • Do they have children and/or pets?
2. Mentally shrink yourself to fit into the scene.
Ask yourself:

  • If I lived here, what would I need?
  • What would I want to have around me?
  • What would I need to pursue my interests?
3. Imagine what's going on at the moment.

  • What day is it?
  • What time of day is it?
  • How's the weather?
  • Who's there?
  • What are they doing?
4. Consider structural changes to add interest.

  • Is there enough room in the scene to include everything that you've imagined?
  • By adding a small room or a view into another room, would that create more interest?
5. Think of timing elements or construction details.

  • Are some parts of the structure built at different times?
  • How have the construction materials aged?

6. Consider the atmosphere you'd like to create.

  • Is it formal or relaxed?
  • Is it neat or messy?
  • Is it comfy or high tech?
7. Imagine the same scene in real life.

  • Include some things that might be strewn about.
  • Remember that you never finish a miniature scene, there's always room for something more.

Have a joyful time.
