Hi guys well another update as promised!


I have been collecting the odd picture frame i see at a charity shop/carboot just for these occasions....


Ive chosen this 6x6" frame as it is a simple beading and still plain pine which i later will give a waxing.

Firstly i started with a sheet of plasticard cut to the size of the photo size then scribed a pavement effect to the first one and then on the second i went for a diagonal tile pattern, I did forget to take a picture of the pavement style but the process is the same.

Measured and marked out the pavement pattern but on the second went free hand/by eye then got scribing.


Next i primed them both grey then started the painting/weathering using multiple paint/washes sponges and here is the results....


Pavement style:

The diagonal pavement style i added some of the first test pieces of 2mm grass tufts as i had them sat to one side even they were flatter it gives a squashed grass effect,well thats my excuse. :eek:


To make the grass tufts i used the (FlockBox) which can provide very good results with short or long grass, These were my very first attempt since then i have made much better ones.I definitely recommend the flockbox as it has so many uses!

Great work Ben, and I'm in agreement with Tony on the first base. Top work on both though Ben.
