New colours, sizes and a tile calculator!

Over the last couple of days I have updated the JS Miniatures website with a few new colours, sizes and a tile calculator so you can now work out exactly how many tiles you need for your dolls house room.

To try out the calculator click on the button opposite.
New colours include powder blue, green and stone and you can now chose from 1/2" tiles, 3/4" tiles and 1" square tiles.  Tiles

For the perfect finish for your tiles why not buy our white tile grout which is a very high quality grout which gives a very smooth finish, perfect for miniature tiles.

It is very easy to use.  After laying your tiles at 1mm spacings with white PVA adhesive, put a small quantity of the grouting powder into a small container and mix up with a few drops of water, gradually adding drops of water until you get a smooth, thick paste.  Add water with a pipette or similar as you can easily add too much.  A little grout goes quite a long way.
Then, spread the grout over the spaces with a plastic palette knife or coffee stirrer and push down into the gaps.  Do a small area at a time and wipe off immediately with a damp sponge.  Leave to dry for a few hours and then polish up the tiles with a cloth.

More new colours

I have added more colours to my expanding range. You can now chose from the classic look of black & white or go for a very Victorian red & black.

I will be adding new sizes in the next few days including 1" & 3/4" and I also now have grout available which will also be added to the site shortly.

New colours are available here

Tile range - New colours

I have added new colours to my range of tiles. Along with the existing faux marble tiles I now have added some ceramic style tiles in clean, modern colours.

Dark blue, white and speckled black are available either as single colours or as mixed packs.  You can either chose from the standard pack sizes of 25, 50 or 100 tiles or I welcome custom orders, just drop me an e-mail.  I'll also work out what you need if you're not sure.

I can also cut them to other sizes - just let me know what you need.

Tiles are available here

They can either be laid flush as in the photo or you can leave a 1mm gap between the tiles and grout to give a very realistic finish as shown below.

Working Modern Fireplace

Check out our working Modern Fireplace. This contemporary design has been brought to life by the addition of tiny LED's to provide a red glow to the logs and fireback.

It works off a standard 12v dolls house supply and is provided with a standard dolls house plug which can be removed for soldering to copper tape.

Available in both kit form and ready made: JS Miniatures working fireplaces

I am working towards making all my fireplaces working over the coming weeks.

New Product - Miniature Marble Finish Tiles

If you are looking for a marble tile but at a fraction of the cost then check out my new products.

These 1/2" square tiles are currently available in 2 colours - grey and creamy white but I'm looking to expand the range of colours and sizes so if there's a colour or size you would like then leave a comment or drop me an e-mail.

At 2mm thick they look and feel just like a real tile and are perfect for floors or walls.  To achieve the most realistic finish they are best glued on  with PVA glue leaving 1mm gaps between the tiles then grouted.*

They are available in 3 pack sizes on the website - 25 tiles, 50 tiles and 100 tiles but I can make these up in any quantity so if you have a large room or you don't know how many you need, drop me an e-mail and I'll work out the quantity and send you a Paypal invoice.

Discounts are available for buying larger quantities.

JS Miniatures Tiles

EDIT: These are also available in green marble finish and in 3/4" and 1" sizes.  Drop me an e-mail to order.

*Grout is available from Richard Stacey http://www.richardstacey.com/mortar.html#grout

30th June - An Update

Sorry about my complete lack of posting since January but I have been extremely busy with JS Miniatures.

I did manage to apply some miniature stone coating to stone work on the front of my dolls house but I still need to take some pictures.  I'm not doing very well at all here!

In the absence of anything to write about my dolls house you might be interested to know that I am launching a new product for JS Miniatures next month which is a Victorian Fireplace based on an original late Victorian cast iron flat grate with tiles circa 1880.

It and my other 2 fireplaces will be available as part of a reader offer in next months DH&MS magazine (September) which is out on the 28th July.

I have also made improvements to my Georgian Fireplace.   All will be revealed in the reader offer!

JS Miniatures - Updated Website and Special Offer!

Happy New Year to all my followers.

This will be the last post about my business on this blog as I have created a blog specifically for JS Miniatures at http://blog.jsminiatures.co.uk/.  From this point on I will be back to blogging about my own dolls house progress, or lack of in my case!

It's the first of January and my website has been updated!  It now contains far more information about the business including standard pages such as 'about us', contact us', 'shipping and returns' and T&C's / Privacy information.

I have also got a special offer running from today.  If you purchase a fireplace you will receive a FREE hearth with wood edging worth £1.49.

Free hearth included when you purchase a fireplace.

It is a typical Georgian hearth which is designed to sit flush with your chosen flooring so you can use it on any type of wood flooring.  See photo above.

If you have any questions about the hearth please get in touch.
