For my birthday a got some modelling books. One of them was:
I also will try to follow a book called “your Flow keep calm daily craft book.” In this book is a daily papercraft task you can do. I will translate this daily tasks in a way that suits my best. The task for one of these days was make a paper flower using a newspaper or a magazine.
I translated this to try to make a road pavement try-out with weeds using paper textures.
From page 88 on there is a chapter about paving. I have adopted a picture from this page for my try-out.
I used the following textures:
Kerbs – Smart Modelling GR14 Flagstone pavement
Pavement – Smart Models GR15 Grey Tarmac
Sewer – Model Railway Scenery Manholes, drains etc
Cobblestones – Model Railway Scenery TX26
Road Tarmac – Scalescenes TO34
Most of them where just parts that where over from other projects. They where printed on high quality matt photopaper.
I finished this very small try-out (4,8 x 4cm) adding some weeds. I used the following materials:
Heki leaves 1561 – mid-green
Mini-Natur moss pads late fall
I also used some pigments from Vallejo to give it a used look.
Hope you like the result of this little project.
