Another coat of paint

It’s been a busy week on the run up to Christmas. We realised the Hobbit is out on Friday so fitted in 8 hours of the 3D versions of the first two films, plus a meal out and Pilates. I did find time on Monday night to mock up the diorama whilst I was waiting for the decorator. I’m not sure whether the brick building or the concrete block extension will make it on. Probably not.

I’m a bit of a dabbler when it comes to painting, especially something as varied as stone. I’ll do a number mber of coats of different colours and different types of paint. Last night I used some Vallejo Buff dabbed on with a brush followed by a coat of Mig Wash in Sand.

Paints

The buildings are beginning to look better but still some way to go.

Two of these have not had the second coat yet. You can see the difference the wash makes in tying things together. It also sits in the cracks which helps as they were very grey.
