Bank Holiday Monday Update #2
Since my post earlier this afternoon, I've made good progress on the small commercial building. This was despite discovering that the primer wasn't much help in preventing the MDF drinking up the paint. I've come to two conclusions:
1. There's not much point to priming the MDF
2. It would be much easier to paint the sections before assembling the buildings.
Of course, both conclusions are too late for these three, but are useful for the next batch.
I've still got some work to do - painting the interiors, doors and windows, plus doing some touching up. I'll be leaving the ground floor interior walls in the red primer, but the floor will be dark blue. I haven't decided what colours to do the upper floor.
Here are some progress pics:
So far I've been using craft paints for this, thinned down with water to aid the flow for the basecoats, but un-thinned for the dry-brushing on the exterior walls and pavement.
