Country Cottages, The Thatching
Ok where was I? (Previously Country Cottages Fireworks and Fur)
Oh yes thatching my cottages and updating my materials used page – but then our dear friends at Bloggerton blew up their system and made a hash of the system restore – yes my page updates have not been restored. Suffice to say, modelling is a hobby, as an IT professional I’m not impressed. Ok moan over, let’s get on with something constructive.
The next stage is to glue on the chimney and the capping stones. The stone and the chimney work are made from modelling clay – I tend to use DAS or similar material for this. I make small stone shapes and glue them to the top of the model sealing the gap between the fur edges.
Then I basically build up the box chimney shape using small pebbles made from the modelling clay, glued on whilst still wet.
