Last time I was left pondering how to light the interior of the building and it was suggested that I could try a light tube up the chimney. That is what I have done. I inserted a plastic tube up into the chimney-actually the sleeve from a hyperdermic needle-behind the forge and then inserted a smaller tube at right angles to the chimney to lie along the beam in the roof. I then managed to thread a yellow micro LED up into the tube and hey presto I had light!
With the lighting sorted I attached the roof and stuck on strips of tiles. These were made by printing a 2mm x 2mm grid onto cartridge paper, then cutting strips 5mm wide with the tiles cut with scissors 2mm into the strip. When dry the whole lot was given a wash of tile colour followed by randomly painting each tile with varying mixes of light red, burnt umber, scarlet and neutral tint watercolour.
Finally the roof and brickwork was weathered by dry brushing a mixture of chromium oxide, raw sienna and raw umber. The main doors made from thin card were added as well as a cellar base and it is now virtually finished.
The only thing left to do is some ivy growing up the end wall between it and the lean to. This will be done with dark green coarse scatter material.
