    The walls are now assembled. I still have some minor adjusting to do to close a gap or too. Next up is weathering the roof. Also I need to add some things, like a chimney, roof vents, and kitchen vents. Time for a visit to the LHS or to put an order in.

    I got the next few tasks done.

    I needed a view block for the building. I took a manila file folder and cut out the size I needed. I then painted both sides with Folk Art Licorice. Once it was dried I instered it into the building.

    The next thing I did was attach the roof to the structure. The roof was previously painted with Folk Art Amish Blue.

    Now I weathered the roof some. First I dry brushed some Americana Burnt Sienna to simulate rust streaks on the “metal” roof. I then went back and dry brushed Folk Art Charcoal Gray to show dirt stains.

    The roof and whole structure is ready for a final weathering wash. That will come, however, after I add some detail parts. I am currently waiting for them to arrive in the mail.

    I finally got some of the details part I recently received painted and attached to the Pink Boutique.

    Pinky’s Place can now get mail:

    Also they now have electricity and gas service:

    The mailbox is from Scale Structures. I first sprayed the mailbox with Dullcoat and then painted it with Folk Art Licorice and sealed it with Dullcoat. The gas meter and electric meter are also from Scale Structures. Again I first sprayed them with Dullcoat. I then painted them with Folk Art Amish Blue and sealed them with Dullcoat. I still need to do a final weathering on them, which will be done along with rest of the building

    Now customers can feel safe coming to Pinky’s at night. We have some lights.
