Church Street part 4

Posted by Job's Modelling , in Church Street 09 September 2017 · 472 views

A quick update
I start with a quote of Pablo Picasso: “I always do things that I cannot do to learn how I have to do it”
I have finished the front of my Georgian building. I used Marshalswick House from Petite Properties as a base.
I used again textures from Scalescenes printed on a textures Hahnemühle photo paper. (Un)fortunately something went wrong when I tried to give the building some weathering the first time. Here it is where I remembered the quote of Picasso. I knew that the printed textures where water resistant. So, to correct the damage I painted the building using diluted Vallejo paint. The result was satisfying.
After the paint was dry I used pastels to weather the building to give it an old appearance.
The building will be placed in Church Street when finished, as an office for an insurance agency.

Thanks. For the stucco I used a natural sponge and then I used a soft paintbrush from the underside to the top.

I fully agree with Dave, that works really well Job. I especially like the door.

Thanks, Mikkel. Actually the door was the easy part. I have a nice collection of pictures of doors of different era's. This one suited really in this building. I'm also pleased with the result of the stucco.

But I'm also pleased with the Regency wooden window shutters behind the top windows.
