Front wall was done – without abt melting it.
Since that wall to the right of the opening was so thin, I glued a piece of foam board behind the opening to strengthen everything. Doesn’t matter as there will be a closed freight/double door there. I needed to go back at this time in use some white glue to secure any loose bricks. One of the problems in doing it this way is that you are basically replicating the real world in that .. the bricks are loose!
This is still very early in the process .. I was thinking about going back and lightly dry-brushing a lighter orangy color so I could follow some of the instructions in the Hydrocal step-by-step coloring thread.
Now for the other walls.
|After looking back at the “Step by step how to build a hydrocal kit” by downtowndeco I realized that I had ‘jumped the gun’ in painting the foam the red oxide. Following the methods in this thread I decided to back up a bit and primered the walls white. I still need to carve the brickwork at the top of the wall etc. etc.|
