Back to the house again! When the clay on the walls of the houses, I saw that I should have kept the clay-sheet just a few mm higher and wider than the wood, as it shrinks while it dries. Stupid me, I know that!
Next step was to paint the stones and cracks. I used different shades of my aquarel-paint.
When it dried, I applied a layer of vaseline, in this case in the absence of any other: strawberry flavoured lipbalm ;-).
And then a thick layer of Gesso all over the house.
I should have faded the brickwork into the rest of the wall, and I should have applied multiple layers of Gesso. Lesson learned. Once the gesso is dry, it can be scratched of the parts with vaseline beneath it.
And the the end-result. Not bad for a first time, will try this again, but better.
Bye for now,
