Due to my preference for blogging on mobile devices, the absence of an official Blogger app and recent problems with a third-party app I have switched my routine updating to a facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/paintingshedblog/

Steve,Good to see some pics of what you're working on- what craft acrylic colours are you using to get that particular finish on the terrain?Darrell.
Hi DarrellI'm using the following:Rustic Brown fence paint from CuprinolA green fence paint from B&QStone coloured masonry paint (textured)A tube of raw umber acrylic (big tube from a cheapo bookshop)These are use neat and in various mixes. Nothing more flash has been needed so far!The tops of the grainfields are drybrushed with a bit of very cheap yellow acrylic craft paint.cheersSteve
Steve,Excellent, excellent, excellent - as usual.Great stuff, mate.All the best,Monty
Thanks Steve,I was looking at a few of the Dulux mix in the store test colours that are available. I guess I could use these as they will mix with one another too.Anyway, I haven't got the space to make anything at the moment as the garage is full to bursting point, though it's good to know for the future.Darrell.
they all just look amazing from the fields to the houses, would love to see how you make the corn fields
Hi GalpyThe cornfields are simply cut from a cheap doormat, using a sharp stanley knife. They are then glued to a terrain board or a piece of MDF (for free-standing fields) using a hot glue gun. The edges are blended into the board/base with filler which is later brushed over with a sand/paint mix.After this has all dried, the painting starts! The corn isn't actually painted as such, I just "yellowed" up the tops with a quick dry-brush.
