Intro: Brief Introduction to Vacuum Forming for Making Dollhouse Scale Miniatures

I don't have easy access to 'proper' tools and such, so after reading up online, watching Youtube videos, and adapting from various Japanese miniaturists' blogs, I put together a tiny vacuum forming setup.

This is my third vacuum forming box, used for items smaller than ~2cm wide. I've used it to make 1:12 scale miniature bubble tea cups, yoghurt pots, plates, bowls, supermarket trays and punnets.

I briefly discuss the tools and plastic materials I use for my simple table-top setup. Nothing too detailed, more for those who haven't yet heard of this method and wondered how I made my items :)
