    Thanks Bill and Mike!
    I weathered the floor a bit and glued the interior in place.


    Now for the rest of the detailing.
    I haven't decided which type of light fixtures to use yet.

          I've started to paint the outside walls.
          I use a variety of Vallejo and MIG paints.

              Michael,

              Fantastic stonework. I like the colors and the little bit of variation between individual stones. The walls have a lot of character.

              The interior is looking very good as well.

              Mike

                Thanks!
                This is how it looks now after all the filters and dry brushing is finished.

                I used a lot of pictures of masonry buildings in Colorado as an inspiration.



                I'm quite satisfied with the result.

                  awesome as well as your "stone work". Well done.

                      To me, the surprise element is that bricks vs stones are reversed from common use. The small bricks are the foundation. And the field stones are the walls. We get so accustomed to seeing just the opposite use, it's a pleasure to see someone thinking out of the box.

                      Beautiful example of varied colors and texture.

                        Michael that is some fine looking stonework. Beautiful coloring.

                        Are you painting those stones one at a time or using a base coat first? If so how are you doing them??

                          As with all plaster walls, I spray paint them with a flat clear before I start the painting.
                          In this case I started with a Vallejo light sand color all over.
                          Then a wash with the same color with a bit of brownish red mixed in.
                          When dry, the next step is to apply a dark brown wash to darken all the crevices.
                          Then I use red oxide and yellow ochre mixed into the base sand color and paint random stones,mixing the paint as I go.
                          The bricks are painted rust.
                          The next is a dry brush of sand mixed with white.
                          I gently apply a grey enamel panel line wash from MIG and finish with a gentle dry brush of sand/white.
