Aerial view to show the planned layout of the Palazzo.
The whole textured with Fine Polyfilla. Messy and fiddly!
The basecoat of Golden Brown by Crafters' Acrylics.
After successive dry brushing of Fawn and Light Antique
White, a wash of GW diluted Seraphim Brown, and a final
dry brush with Crown Emulsion Lime Wash.
The Wills Flagstones have had similar treatment to maintain
the sense of colour for the piece.
A view from the side rear. The Foundry Madder Red Shade on
the pantiles has been dry brushed with the same firm's Orange
Midtone and Light.
View from the right rear aspect showing the side gate.
View from the left rear aspect to show the small Warbases
Shed filling in a corner.
View from the front left aspect to highlight the Supreme
Littleness Designs Ornate Window added to the Warbases
Tall Modular Building.
Final view from the front right aspect to show the courtyard
interior, minus the statue which is being Satin varnished by
Phil for me.
To recap if you've just arrived at this final stage, the buildings are all MDF shells: from Warbases; Sarissa Precision; Charlie Foxtrot Models; and, Sally Forth. I can't praise all of them enough for the advice and help offered in the planning and purchase phase of the project, but particular thanks must go to Martin and Dianne at Warbases who cut the base to my specifications and made a number of parts from whole kits available to me. They are the stars of the MDF firmament for me!
