Books on marquetry, my new workshop

Author: Виктория, November 2, 2022 в Uncategorized

There are two new videos on my Youtube channel. One is about my new workshop, the video was published a week ago, but I forgot to share the link here 🙂

The second video is about the books on marquetry that I have in my collection. Lots of books in English, Roubo books, for example. And several really good books in Russian, mostly exhibition catalogues.

It’s been a long time…

Author: Виктория, October 25, 2022 в Commissions, Furniture, Miniature Shows

It’s been two years since my last post here. This year was full of events. Events that were so unbelievable, that I couldn’t get back to my workshop again. All my thoughts, concerns shifted to a real life, my family. Through all these years I was making posts in other social media platforms, it seemed at the time that it would be always like that. I’d go to the shows in April-May, then IGMA school, maybe another show in autumn, or even exam to pass. Anyway, most of my plans don’t matter anymore.
But I still make miniatures and intend to do so in the future.
I’d love to show some of my miniature projects that were finished quite some time ago, but weren’t shown here in my blog.

Let’s start with these two Italian footstools, you can find a process of making them in one of my videos on my Youtube channel.

Italian footstools

The first painted lacquer cabinet, that was made for PIMA awards at Kensington Dollshouse Festival, the second one was made later.


Another Italian project, and armchair, quite complex carving, lots of gold and oil painting.


One of my favorite and one of the smallest projects:


Another favorite, lots of details, that I thought I’d never be able to achieve.


Another Italian piece, this time in scagliola technique. I’m really proud that I was able to make it in miniature.


A French side table, made for IGMA school auction.


There’s so much more to show. Till the next time!

Влоги на youtube

Author: Виктория, October 6, 2016 в Uncategorized

А я вот забыла, что выложила на днях небольшой типа урок на тему шаблонов и того, как сделать много-много одинаковых деталей для наших миниатюрных дел. Урок получился совсем спонтанный, вот просто захотелось включить камеру и просто так рассказать, что и сделала. Быстро отредактировала, выложила на Youtube. Я далека от какого-то качества в операторском деле, но, надеюсь, получилось понятно.

И еще одно видео, это, простите, влог (как блог, только в видео). Я очень часто дома снимаю на видео свой процесс работы, потому как записи на бумаге иногда помогают слабо в том, чтобы вспомнить как что делалось. А с видео это очень быстро и очень просто, только бы места на жестком диске потом хватило. А сейчас, так как готовлюсь к шоу и времени на посты мало, решила, что свои видео можно и выложить-показать. Шевеленки там еще больше, но я буду стараться в будущем этого избегать. Вот. Надеюсь, вам понравится.

Dollhouse bricks. Almost real!

Author: Виктория, September 22, 2015 в To Read, To Read, WIP, WIP

There are some things that truly inspire. They can make you create a whole room just for them. And recently I found one in Russian social site. In one of the groups I saw a post about miniature bricks with lots of photos, and I was blown away. It’s hard to find an artisan in Russia who creates such complicated things (I’m speaking about technology and process involved) from scratch.
I loved the bricks and instantly wanted to buy them though I had no idea how I could use them, besides I’m making furniture mostly, not roomboxes (sigh). Minutes later I decided to make some sort of decoration for one of my items for Christmas Kensington Festival. I ordered 2kg of bricks.

Dmitry, an artisan who makes these bricks, was also very kind, he sent me bricks of another scale too (1/9) and half-bricks. Look how cool they are:

Gaspar Homart masterpieces.

Author: Виктория, December 30, 2014 в History

I’m reorganizing my boards on Pinterest – mostly the ones with art nouveau style furniture and such. So I have decided to make special board on Gaspar Homar. I recently copied his music stand and art nouveau sofa.

Gaspar Homar was born in Spain in 1870 and died in 1953. 82 years, huh? Not bad at all. I found his biography only in Spanish ( and my Spanish sucks to be honest) but I managed to find out that not only he was a fantastic cabinetmaker but he also was into mosaics and house decoration, lighting etc.

Here is on of such houses, all the furniture is now in the museum in Catalonia:

Some news and my Etsy shop

Author: Виктория, June 25, 2014 в Uncategorized

The weather in Moscow is terrible – raining and no sun at all. Even May was perfect with its sunny days.

And now I’m back to work with another project, need to model everything in 3d before, it’s quite complicated project for me, so I have to work in several programs at the same time.

As for the rest – I added my Mom’s dolls on my site and also opened my Etsy shop though there are only few items left.
