    Please, no really, this is a compliment - PERFECTLY DENSE!!! It has that nice thick overgrown woodsy look to it, and yet it's not the "great green hairball that ate the layout" polyfoam look - too dense with no breaks in the canopy, IMO. AND, you've got a nice variety in color as well. So, great job and keep up the 'dense' modeling.

    I like Galen's comments. I just hope that when I get to that stage, I receive similar responses, especially from Galen (since he drew up my trackplan)

    Time to revive the mountainside layout construction.

    First thing I worked on was the wall for the blue house.

    I carved the mortar lines with a razor knife.

    Next I painted the wall with Folk Art Light Gray.

    Then using a brush I dabbed on the following colors in order (all Folk Art):
    • Barn Wood
    • True Burgundy
    • Dark Gray
    • Raw Umber
    • Settlers Blue.

    Then I did it a second time in the same order.

    Next I went over the wall with a wash made from one part Raw Umber and one part blue windshield washer fluid.

    After that dried I went over with a wash of one part Linen and one part blue windshield washer fluid. This time I wiped off the wash before it dried.
