Last night I made a bit of progress on my Charlie Foxtrot Models' "Table Edge Terrace" British Version that I mentioned in my last post; specifically starting the rendering effect. Here it is 'before':
And here is 'after':
I first did this on a bunch of Amera Plastic Mouldings buildings that I had a long time ago and found that it didn't quite transfer directly from a plastic to an MDF building ...
I coated the building in slightly diluted PVA and then sprinkled dry plaster powder on it. With the plastic building this was fine, but with a non-undercoated MDF building the glue was soaked up by the MDF almost straightaway! Lesson learned - either undercoat the MDF or sprinkle faster!
Back in June in this post, I mentioned 6mm ACW terrain; well I couldn't find any buildings in my resin mountain (well, let's be honest, I didn't actually search it) so I bought some from Leven Miniatures and started on some of them last night:
I'm pleased with how they've come out - remember they're very small and to be viewed from at least arm's length! :) - and only need the application of the 'magic dip' to finish
