Painting the temple part 2. Contrast.
I’l be working on the temple for a bit now. It’s one of the two anchor buildings in the middle of the island. Since the tops of these buildings all have to separate from the foundations just to get the project out of my work room, magnets are being installed to ease the process. Magnets on one side, nails on the other. The tricky part is getting the magnets to stay in place, glue is not playing nice.
Painting is done for the Old Crow. Next up is detailing stuff. Coach lights, window boxes, signs, then gluing the base in place and adding curbs.
I got a bunch of foliage done on the prominence this past week.
You can see the bottom floor already has it’s muddy brown wash, while the upper stories are still waiting.
Base painting still going on. I forgot to shoot a step by step, but it’s a bunch of very similar sand tones. Will be drybrushed and washed down the road.
I got this punch from the scrapbooking world. It was $50 at Hobby Lobby, I got it for like $20 on Amazon.
It’s kind of a pain to use with plastic card, but it works. I took the for sale signs and sanded a grain into it with 50 grit sandpaper, to give a wood grain feel.
Hopefully this will make the roofing tiles go quicker. I needed a deeper cut than pinking sheers could give me, and this punch fits the bill.
