Fairy Tale Tower - Plastering outside

Hello folks,

Hope you are all well and keeping warm. Here in Malta it's getting a bit colder but we are still having lovely sunny days. 

This past week I have been busy opening My Miniature World Shop at Esty and now I can say that it is officially open. I still need to add more items especially my polymerclay minis. So far it's going well and I had a couple of sales. 

I also want to welcome 2 new followers to my Blog; my dear friends Frenchy Bullen and Christine Whyte. Welcome!

The out side of the Tower

 It took me quite some time to finish the outside of the tower. I have plastered the building with polyfiller and have formed a piece of foil into a brick shape where I indented some areas of the building. When it dried up I gave the brick shaped are an undercoat of grey paint.

First cover of polyfiller 
Then I plastered the second coat of polyfiller to the building. This time I have made the finishing a bit more rougher and I didn't cover the brick effect. I wanted to achieve the effect of a weathered damaged building where you can see the outside plastering being peeled off from the bricks. When the second coat was dried completely I painted the building in a creamy color and painted the brick effect in acrylic colors. I have also dirtied the lower parts in green and around the bricks in a mustard color.

I never thought that it would turn out as good as it came out. I am very pleased. It took me 5 days to complete. I hope that you like it too.






There is still so much to do inside. So please keep tuned as I will be updating you very soon with some miniatures for this fairy tale dwelling. 

Take Care and see you soon.

Hugs,
