I think I'm done! See part 1 for how I got this point.
- Wet paint loosens glue. I learned quickly after dropping one of my fences that they are even more fragile after becoming wet with my various paints and washes. My solution was to add some wood-glue to nearly all of the joins.
- Dry brushing can be over-done.
- Black and brown ink washes are very deep and need to be dilute just a wee bit.
|An ochre coat is my first layer of paint after|
allowing the black primer coat to dry.
|Here are a normal and gate fence section after|
applying a diluted brown ink wash.
|This is the result after applying|
dry-brushing with brown.
|At this point I decided to re-enforce all|
of my parts with some wood-glue because
my washes and paints loosened
the previous glue effort.
|I flocked the fence post bases with|
fine-grit sand and then painted them
a neutral gray because I wasn't sure
what color I wanted them to be.
|Here's the finished product. Notice that|
I added a staple for the gate door handle.
It was painted first with silver and then
it was dabbled with a medium brown.
