When it has that 'lived in' look.
I have been painting many of the terrain pieces from Terrain Week for the packaging artwork, etc.
Just in case anyone was freaking out about seeing only pink, white and light brown :-) I was thinking of putting a series of images in a slide show form, or something like that, just in case people wanted a reference.
Obviously, many of us have already painted terrain pieces like this before! It is pretty straightforward.
Using that craft paint is the biggest key, since it flows so well over very absorbent surfaces, such as the balsa wood roof! It also covers the pink foam well, like the chimney.
Nothing like a Fantasy setting or even D & D with a set if building like this!
Once the original set of videos are done, sent, etc. I want to expand on them. I want to make Inns, Blacksmith shops, and so on.
I hope you have fun with yours!!
No mailbox, though...
