Fences

When I was making the Jailhouse I ended up with offcuts from the lollipop sticks I used, so I decided to turn them into picket fences. Simple stuff… I cut two lengths of balsa to secure the lollipop ends to, fixed that to some thick card (using another lillipop stick as a brace) and then used PVA glue to cover the base in sand. I cut the ends of the bases at 45 degree angles and let the fence overhang the ends slightly. That way they can form 90 degree corners.

I think they turned out pretty well.

    Nice.

    Question. What did you do to the POPSICLE sticks in terms of painting? It looks like just a light and very thinned brown wash on the au-natural sticks, but curious if there is more to it than that.

      I painted them with a light white undercoat (spray) and then a 1:1 wash of Water:Devlan Mud. Simple stuff.
