Default Stone fireplace...

Making another stone wall and fireplace..it will be 1:6th scale but will be just as easy to make in 12th....
i'm using mountboard,its quite sturdy and costs about £4 ish a sheet from craft/art shops...the garden stones are £1 per bag,the uhu glue £1,the instant polyfiller is £1 and the craft knife £1 for 3..all from the £shop cheap and cheerful !
... score the sides of the fireplace so that it stays complete and score some flaps that can be stuck down onto the wall
wash the stones before you use them.

....i cut the space for the fireplace in 3 places so the flaps could be folded inwards and glued to the back for xtra support......
used a scrap piece of mountboard for the hearth

...i used a self adhiesive floor tile to make the hearth..
just need to cover the front and inside then grout the lot..then paint it grey.. simple and quick...no skill needed, none used
...the fire that i made(for the green man pub) from a matchbox,grill mesh and beads fits in it a treat..i used a flicker battery tee light to give a flame effect and used short willow garden fencing for the logs,covered them in red glitter.

thanx rebecca,mouse and lindap....brill ! have fun mouse

i'm glad to see the back of the uhu glue,the tube keeps splitting and the glue trickles everywhere
..could'nt get my trusty tube of instant filler today,they've changed the package,not even a tub in sight...will have to try another £shop and see if they have any old stock....i will start on the grouting later.

(managed to get some xmas decorations for 25p each!..baubles,little lights i bought for £1 are now 25p!!!!...whoohoo!..get in there if you want something for next year or mini xmas bits for your homes !

thanx chocoholic..
..had a bash at the grouting earlier on....i used a cotton bud to get into the nooks and crannies and smooth the surface a bit...
..keep some wet ones handy as it can be dirty work sometimes..
..when i had finished the grouting i wiped off the surplus filler from around the stones/chippings...i used a knife to scrape the tricky bits off the stones although some will be embedded in the cracks so would be impossible to get rid of all of it....
..when its completely dry i will paint the grouting grey.

there is an easier way which would be to put the grout on first a couple of mm would do ,then you can press the stones into it.....not sure if the stones would fall away from it in time..that why i glue the stones onto mountboard first,then grout...not so good if you don't have much patience.....
