I think things have finally settled down (business wise), so now things can pick up (layout wise). That being said, tonight was the birth of a town. Well, the birth of Main Street, Orangeville. The northern terminus of the Credit Valley Railway in 1885. I started out with 3 pieces of 1" blue foam. The bottom is 7.5" wide by 36" long, the next level was 18" long and the last level was 9" long (see the trend, ). Plaster was mixed up, acrylic paint (DecoArt Tan and Burnt Umber) was added and then I got out the collection of used Dryer Sheets I have been saving. Dip, drain, spread.... repeat. I took these shots just after cleaning up. My work table right now is our dining room table with a colorful plastic cloth on it. :thumb: Hopefully I can get things going. On top I hope to have a main street of buildings. It will be 14 buildings grouped in three blocks.
