Be inspired by all things Eastern this month as we’re looking far afield for our miniatures. We’ve packed a lot into this issue – from a look inside a stunning 1:20 scale Japanese inn to exploring a major new dolls’ house exhibition in Istanbul. We interview the creators of a stunning Asian-inspired 1:48 scale family home and take a behind-the-scenes look at how professional miniature mouldings are created. For the DIYers among you, we’ve got plenty of projects that will suit any style of dolls’ house, from a polymer clay tea set to make, to a modern kimono-style wrap to sew. We even show you how to use metal clay to create a 1:24 scale serving tray. Plus, with dolls’ house gardening projects and ideas, inspiration pages, the latest reviews and great giveaway prizes to win – we’ve got all you need for this month’s miniature fix!
