    Graff,
    Saloon looks really good! I like the back section, wall paper, and floor. I've checked out your thread on the Rail Line.
    Did you grow all the furnishing as well?

    Thanks!
    I've designed everything except the chairs.
    The resin printer really is a great help in this scale.

    I've started to paint the outside walls.
    I use a variety of Vallejo and MIG paints.

    I have just added the enamel panel line wash on the bricks.

    Looks really good! How are you doing those color variances? Painting individual stones seems like it would be a rather time consuming task.

    It's smoke and mirrors like most art...
    ;)
    I start with a sand color all over, followed by a wash of the sand color with a dash of raw sienna to give it some warmth.
    Then a darker wash of dark brown mixed with grey. This goes into the recesses.
    Then, and not before, I start painting some stones with red oxide mixed with the sand color.
    Mix as you go and paint random stones.
    Then add drybrushing of sand and white paint.
    Then comes the final wash, the enamel panel line wash. I use MIG panel wash, dark grey.
    This is allowed to go in all the joints and crevices.
    To brighten things up, i finish with a dry brush with sand color.

    Your building looks fantastic, I have a small church that I painted the same way, one stone at a time. Your's looks a lot better though.

    Thanks!
    This is how it looks now after all the filters and dry brushing is finished.

    I used a lot of pictures of masonry buildings in Colorado as an inspiration.

    I'm quite satisfied with the result.

    I started on the plethora of windows and doors for the project.
    These older Grandt line castings are good!
    Not a flash to be seen anywhere.
    I primed them with Badger Stynylrez primer before painting them an old wood color.
    Then I used hairspray as a chipping layer before painting them offwhite.
    The chipping was done rather lightly with a small brush.
    A dark grey pin wash from MIG was then applied.

    The glass I use is microscope slide covers. They are really good to use when you have an interior to show, as there's no distortion.
    They are quite delicate though, so I divide them in separate panes to avoid big sheets that may break easier.

    Graff,

    The wall looks beautiful! The windows look great! Does the hair spray keep the paint from sticking?

    Thanks, the hairspray lets me do the chipping paint.
    Here's a video I saw on the technique:
