Fairly obvious, the roof, pre painting, which I should have put up on yesterday's blog. The roof has now been suitably made to look older and grottier.
And here she is, Daffodil Cottage. Yes I did think of painting the door and windows, yellow, but then decided against it. I changed the colour of the step, and then made it look mucky. I like the brick work, the raw and burnt umber mix worked nicely. It did need another coat, as did the roof, but it didn't take long. The fiddly bit was the chimney, trying to use the mask on such a small object is tricky, but then I'm not after perfection. These houses have to look 'old', so battered bricks work best.
Here's a close up of the front, you can't even see the join in the brick work! I remembered the ridge tiles for the porch, the front step could do with a tiny bit of sanding, just in the middle.
I'm stuck in for the next two days, have to wait in for workmen. Typical that it has to be when the weather is fairly decent, and is also warming up. Though it is that crazy time of year when you aren't sure what to wear, I mean is there such a thing as spring clothes?
I'll sign off now, need a cuppa.
