part 4 of the building

I painted the wood planking dark brown matt DIY pot paint and a nutmeg for the ground inside the fort

The inside was given a magnolia matt highlight, i used this on the gound and fort , it was then given a white touch of dry brushing

Time for the outside groundwork, nutmeg, small brush first for all the neat touches followed by a large brush, need to wait for it to dry now.

Almost done, still have to create the gate and another barricade inside, plus more painting.

Update so far, i have now highlighted the outside groundwork, and thought it might need another colour just to break it up, so i used PVA glue and sprinkled grass, once dry i touched up with another paint pot from the DIY store - matt yellow

Also i thought why not add a touch of grass in the places i thought it might grow inside the fort, again its just a break up of colours. but i think it works.

The cocktail sticks i cut down, i did'nt want the sharp ends, coud be a pain in the hand when picking up the board piece and i did not think it made that much difference.

I came across this box for £1 in a craft shop, looks ok, but its the hinges i wanted for my gate door, i will try and get these off and put them to good use.

I created the door with balsa wood and again coffee sticks, the rivets i made is plastic putty, just put a blob on a what ever you have and use a sewing needle - dip the needle in the blob and place it on the gateway where it should go, just wait till dry.

So far so good, got to get this gate finished then it will be time to weather it up, i think it makes a massive difference to anything you create.
