1. Measure Your Set Elements
The last thing you want to do is finish building your set and realize the elements you will place within the set are too big. Before you begin assembly, take time to measure the portions of each set element properly.
You want to ensure that the elements are big enough that anyone can clearly see the details you’ve put into each element but small enough that it fits properly on the set.
2. Use Reliable Glue
Once everything is assembled, and in its rightful place, one bump of the table can send all the miniature perfume sets pieces flying everywhere.
Choose a glue that won’t leave behind any residue and secures all of your pieces in their rightful places. And always wear protective gear if you get glue on your skin it can be hard to get off.
3. Easy Assemblage
Where are you going to put the set when you’re not using it? Are you going to leave it out at all times? Or would you like to put it away for safe storage?
We recommend that you make pieces of the set easy to disconnect and put back together when you’re ready to use it. This ensures that your set remains in prime condition even when it’s being stored.
4. Invest in Your Tools
Before you can begin creating your miniature set, you’ve got to have the right tools to do so. Because the pieces you’re going to be working with and putting together are small, it’s assumed that you will need tools that make it easy to clamp and hold onto pieces.
Some tools you might need include:
- Wedge and stick
- Variety of clamps
- Metal Ruler
The list above is just a few of the many miniature tool set items you will need. There are several places online and many craft stores where you can purchase the tools you need to create your set.
