Painting update Lake Town Houses   Leave a comment

Grey for roof,  Light brown and Bone white for nets.  Various browns.  Dark Army painter wash watered down liberally applied.  Reapplied base colours.  Lighter greys dry/ wet brushed to roof.

Tin bitz or gunbolt metal for lanterns.  Black or yellow to glass of lanterns.  Red, Green or Blue applied to coloured areas of wooden buildings including signs.  Then a red, green or blue wash applied.  Finally in order to give the effect of aged wood, peeling paint the base colour brown was dry/ wet brushed over the wood areas.  Quite effective compared to the original neatly painted originals in giving that aged, slightly neglected, run down Lake Town look as opposed to neat Swiss chalet cottages.
