Had a blast dry brushing the test wall. I think it came out pretty well. Learned a few things too.
|First coat of cheap craft black paint (added a second later)|
|Wood dry-brushed with cheap craft Burnt Umber |
|Wood dry-brushed with cheap craft Spice Brown|
|Wood dry-brushed with cheap craft Bridgeport Grey|
|Wattle dry-brushed Charcoal, then Hippo Grey, |
then Bridgeport Grey, then Antique White
- Paint the wattle first - I ended up having to touch-up the wood beams quite a bit
- Scuff up the boards well BEFORE assembly - especially the edges
- Not happy with the plastic-coated paper business card I used for the door horizontals - it didn't take to texturing very well (or perhaps I forgot to do it!)
- I need some different sized wood - the coffee stirrers are too thick and a pain to cut down
All in all, pleased as punch with how it turned out though. Good fun!
Looks great, can't wait to see a finished building. I need to make some buildings for SAGA so thanks for sharing your method. Cheers, Paul.ReplyDelete
