These miniature firescreen designs cover many eras and styles, and give a stunning range suitable for many types of room in your dollshouse. The fabric provided in these kits is 32 count gauze, and plenty of Anchor stranded cotton is included, too, for working the design in tent stitch (similar to half cross stitch). It is simple to work from the colour block chart, and these designs ‘grow’ quickly – gauze is easier to stitch on than it sounds! Detailed instructions and diagrams guide you through, including how to assemble the high-quality white metal firescreen kit, which comes as three pieces which are simply glued together with contact adhesive. The frame can then be primed and finished off with either a gloss or matt enamel paint of your choice. The Humbrol shade that we used for each firescreen, easily obtained from hobby shops, is listed on the relevant instruction sheet. Full instructions for how to mount the finished stitching neatly in the frame are included in the kit. This would make a perfect gift for a friend – or yourself!.
