How to Paint Cobbles

How to Paint Cobbles

We’re continuing to use the Diorama Blitz Kino model kit sent to me by Doug Foscale.

This week we’re painting the cobble stone street.  It’s based on the streets I saw this summer in Lisbon and I wanted a bluish toned cobble with cement between it.

The “Real” World

These are all photos from my tuktuk ride in Lisbon.  It had some great inspiring streets and buildings.
