Monster High Dollhouse

This is my biggest project so far, and probably will be the biggest unless I build myself a life size cardboard home....mmmm....would be cool....

This is the Monster High House I am making for my niece....I just can't say no to her, she received
a few Monster High Dolls for Christmas...now she has 8....  We are calling it "Skull Academy" for smart monsters..... There is a classroom on first floor, plus lounge with vending machine....the dorm rooms are the 2nd and 3rd floors...

 This is the first step, gluing cardboard together, doubled up on the cardboard so the paper mache won't warp the cardboard, added alot of support so it doesn't buckle, I want this house to last forever.

I changed the balcony...took out the wooden sticks and replaced it with these mini plastic forks I found at the dollar store....
Now you can start paper mache....
My favourite part....eek...gotta be done, makes 
the house stronger....

Make paper mache paste like yogurt texture...to avoid warping cardboard, cardboard cannot be wet too long, do a big chunk then put a fan on it to dry the cardboard, you can avoid warping or you can buy body paint, I read on a website that a thin layer of body paint will waterproof the cardboard so there won't be warping...

Now...my favourite part, the painting and decorating.... painted the window frames metallic silver...and black for the rest of it......
