Cowleaze Farm progress 2
I have turned my attention to the front of the farm. There is a gravel area and a front fence with two gates leading onto the drive to the garage.
The fencing is made from hoops of .41mm brass wire set into a strip of cardboard and then the horizontal wires are soldered on. The whole lot is then set into a slot in the ground plaster. This is an idea given to me by a fellow modeller Stuart Holt.
The gravel is represented by sprinkling chinchilla dust into wet masonry paint and when dry the worn paths were made by rubbing with a fibre glass pencil..
The gates are built up from evergreen plastic strip.
The next step is to finish the stone walls around the orchard and install all the various gates.
