Small Cottage Tutorial
This is one way to finish the 25 or 28 mm scale Small Cottage. Look for other examples in the near future.
|Start with a Small Cottage Building Blank.||Glue it together with wood glue and let dry.|
|Glue popsicle sticks to the cottage to create beams, window sills, and steps.||Glue strips of cardboard to the cottage to create laths.|
|Spackle the cottage using, well, spackle. I find that a palette knife is very good for this (available in art stores). A bread knife would also work well. Cover only the edges of the laths.||Prime the cottage with spray paint. Please note, if spraying unpainted, unspackled, Building Blanks with spray paint, use a plastic safe spray paint as some propellants in spray paint will melt the foam center of the foam core.|
