I decided to try my hand again with the Magic Brick. Apparently I need to have more patience and take my time. Blah Blah Blah.
Side of the Leon Gothic Victorian Mansion. I did do this in sections. While waiting for the mortar mix to dry I decided the look of the siding on the third level was not working for me. With my left over mix was used to start covering the siding. I am hoping this will be a scale stucco look.
You can clearly tell where I did not have the tape adhered well to the house.
While the next section was drying, I took a toothpick and started applying white paint to correct my grout lines.
This section will need some work also.
Progress overall view. Once complete I will dry brush white paint over the bricks. I am undecided what color to paint the stucco yet.
As I have mentioned, my Great Aunt recently passed away. While my cousins were sorting out her belongs, they found some miniatures that they gave to me.
She had a glass Christmas room box tucked away that needs some TLC.
The flickering flame in the fireplace no longer works, but the tree does light up. I carefully removed the fireplace without ruining the paper and moved it off center to the right. I am going to cut out the black area of the wall and make a firebox.
One of the many pieces of her collection that caught my eye was this screen. How cool is this? I may have to make a small room box to display this piece.
I also found a her painting that she did in miniature. I will be able to use that in her cabin.
