    for my first scracth project I decided to make a small water tower.
    I took some toothpicks, cut the pointy ends off. I just started to make the base frame. When I'm done I'll give a weathered look.

    I made a few changes to my water tower. Instead of using the glued together toothpicks I used bamboo skewers. I just cut the poity end off and cut them in half. All I have to do is glue them to the water holder thingymajig. I'll give it a weathered look.

    BTW how do I make something look weathered?
