More progress on my degree show house.
The back of the house now has paving!
I scored individual paving slabs into a piece of thick grey card and roughly painted them.
Then I smudged charcoal over the paving so it would go into the cracks to look like dirt.
I also added grass scatter, the kind used on model railways, along with dried tea and mixed herbs.
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out as it looks pretty realistic. It was also nice to get some instant results as it seems most of the parts I'm working on for this building are taking a long time, but it doesn't look like I'm getting anyway.
