To get the new Burn in Designs church ready for Adepticon was going to require paint and cereal. Well... at least cereal boxes.
To finish off the roof and give a little extra texture, I chopped up a cereal box to make a few quick shingles. I also made some stones for the bottom foundation.
Time to break out the craft paints and some airbrush colors, as they already have that thinner, easy flowing consistency you have heard me mention before.
A few colors arrayed on the palette. I wanted to have some warmer and cooler shades to work with, as well as lighter and darker colors.
To work quickly on the surface of the roof, I made a number of color mixes in advance on the palette. I do this all the time for my regular minis :-)
You can see this play out on the surface. I put down some of the darkest colors along the edges, and then went back in with lighter tans and grays, even allowing them to mix right there on the shingles.
These are early layers, which are meant to cover the heavy texture. Subsequent layers will be lighter, with even more varieties of shades, including more greenish colors in places.
This looks like it is just black, but there is already some tans, reds, grays, and other colors that I can build upon moving forward.
The same process was done on the main roof.
The inner section of the roof was fun, as it had some neat rafters!
Working quickly with the larger brushes, I was able to blend a cooler grey brown mix into a yellowish tan. Again, this is just a base. Hence Shaded Basecoat!
Yes, even on buildings. :-) More to come!!!
