Museum Quality Miniature furniture is in the scale of one inch to the foot ... or.... each inch in miniature represents 12 inches in actual life scale. Further, all details, including furniture construction, joinery, and materials are as closely reproduced as is possible. In Linda's case, she specialized in the finishing techniques,such as faux marble, paintings, and upholstery and often partnered with other artisans who constructed the furniture. In her Chinioserie, for example, between five and ten coats of black or red lacquer would be applied, with fine wet sanding between coats, then cured or air-dried for a period of time, before ever applying the actual gold chinioserie designs.
