That's coming along really nice. There's never too much brick and what you have is done VERY well!


Beautiful work! There is so much detail, and I like the brick. It looks like an old time carriage house, before there were automobiles. Great job!
Sam

I agree with these guys!! There is no such thing as too much brick!!

I've built several dioramas over the years, but they were always intended to be sold, so I never put that much work into them. If I ever build one that I plan to keep, I would want to make it as nice as this one is being built.

Thanks for sharing,

Outstanding.

Phil, one question. What were you using to engrave the brick pattern on the foam? It looks like a mechanical pencil, but I'm not certain.

thanks men.

To engrave the foam, here is the different step with some pics, you'll see it's very easy !

First i cut some line

with a hobby knife

then with a pen to have a larger line

after that you can cut your brick

thank you friends!

For the method, it is simple. (hope that everybody understand, i use google translator !)
As a reminder, I only painted the acrylic, Liquitex diluted alcohol at 70 ° all passed the single-action airbrush to 10 euros on a well known auction site.

1 / I first had a layer of black on the body

2 / I spend a veil (very diluted paint, very liquid) brown (Raw Umber) once the black dry

3 / I balance of keys Burnt Sienna Burnt in places.

4 / I start my keys with color again a veil of Earth sienna

5 / Once this is done and dry, I spray a good dose of hairspray on the whole and before drying I sprinkle salt.

6 / When the airspray dry, i paint with the last color, here green.

7 / Once the color box is dry, I can only pass the model under water to remove salt and "work" the paint to get the desired effect. In fact the hair spray protects the color of rust base and allows me to remove the green where I want.

8 / Finally, I will complete the effect with touches of rust pigments that will slightly melt the rust stains with paint.

Here, as usual, is my method of pretending, that is relatively simple and efficient!

My tubes for different layers and veils basis for rust:
