  • I decided since one barrel would be full of scrap steel and such that I would give it a little more rust.

    I first taped off the barrel and gave the inside a spray of red oxide primer. Then I gave it a light brush of rust colored chalk followed by a heavy coat of rust and a spray of Dulcote.



    Now I need some scrap junk...

      • Thanks Jeff.

        Well, I finally have my bench back[:-bouncy]

        So I got out a piece of glass and the box of plaster to make the foundation and driveway.





        While the plaster was still 'wet', I cut the driveway into four sections. It will be cracked and well worn.

        I also added a table near the window and made up a couple of cans. Still need to add a couple more details.



        I've also decided to add some interior and exterior lighting so I'll add that before gluing together the walls.

        • All I can say, again, is WOW!

          This shop is shaping up to be a real winner Ken, sure can't wait to see a photo of the finished front with signs and all!

          • The two cans behind the window are very good, as is the "Sorry, we are closed" sign. Realistic and not too obvious details.

                • Thanks guys :up:

                  Have the interior lights installed. Still need to tweak the brightness.



                  Making progress, although slowly.

                  • I've added a calendar and a stack of magazines next to the cans.



                    The walls have been glued together and I'm working on the corners.

                    • Ken,

                      Really nice! I had overlooked this thread somehow. What a surprise when I went through it. The weathering on the door is outstanding. Make me think of giving something big a try myself (maybe someday)

                        • The last wall is carved, painted and weathered.

                          • Absolutely wonderful work. I'm impressed with everything - especially the brick work. Also, a great job on weathering.

                            • Ken,

                              You've done a marvelous job of carving bricks into the corner joints. Those joints are now quite invisible. :up:
