Just a quick blog entry to show that a water trough and some horse poo have been added to the scene:-)
The water trough was built from 40 thou plasticard sheet, then "distressed" using a rose head bur in a rotary hand piece to give it some texture. The water is a represented using a clear sheet of plasticard painted on the underside with a dark green/black colour and held in position with a dab of epoxy resin. Once painted the trough was sat into the yard surface and some weeds around the base were represented using green foam scatters.
The tap is a white metal casting from S & D models http://www.sanddmodels.co.uk/products_43_accessories.htm number AB46, which once painted was positioned behind the water trough.
Horse poo was represented using Richard's (Tricky) recipe involving sieved soil, sand, brush bristles and PVA white glue http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/121411-midland-in-london-or-is-it-birmingham/page-4 post 96 onwards. Quite if it lives up to the "poo master's work is for others to judge, but I think it adds a little something to the scene!
Until next time.........
