Nice windows Dave. Curtains look excellent. In the first photo, that look slightly stained. Is that correct ?
If so, nice effect.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Thanks Rob. Yes the curtains are stained. (A Darryl Huffman Process.) Dabbed tissue paper with a diluted mixture of water and light beige acrylic. Colored the tissue on a glass sheet and after drying carefully scraped of with a razor blade. This process gave wrinkles, tears and a stain appearance to represent old curtains.

Added concrete headers and awnings to windows, signs and weathered the building. (Pictures are faded by too much lighting during photographing}





Next: Roof detailing and board up a window

Dave,
Looking good. This is going to be a wonderful grouping of structures.

Jim, Ted, Mike and Bob...Thanks for the nice comments.
Just received my styrene strips today so I can start on the storefront and fire escapes.
