Yesterday evening the roof was painted with artist's burnt sienna,
when dry it was much too 'bold' and needed letting down.


This is just after a wash of DecorArt Amish Grey
that is well-diluted but still wet,
it will change colour when fully dry.





Still lots to do,
a chair for the stoop and weathering for the clapboard.

I would try drybrushing colours.


Less impact on raised detail,

and makes for a weathered appearance.

The trick with weathering is knowing when to stop.

The 'office' merely needed a wash to let-down the roof colour (now dry)
and a subtle touch of muck on the front step
and at the corners of the window where the water drips off the sill.

I am going to leave it alone for a few weeks
and see how it works with the other structures.




That's all folks, you can follow the

building of the diorama on this blog
