Are you going to do just the buildings or the whole diorama Karl?  this one will try your patience and will not be one of those done in several weeks.  Have fun and you will do a magnificent job.

Tom, if you use the same base color on each board, and you weather the boards individually, they will come out different shades due to the wood grain, density etc.  I also vote for the middle one. Sometimes if boards are damaged for some reason and then replaced you could have different colors.  But that would only be a few boards maybe.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and your encouraging comments.  This part of the backdrop was painted by a Cuban political refugee who paints murals in Arizona.  He did this mural in 4 hours.

I have had good luck with the top of the line brushes for acrylics from Michael's.  I make sure that I don't use them to use them with paints using lacquers or mineral spirits.

I didn't like the way the color turned out after the bath and so I used the pastels to address the issue.  In the future, I am just going to forget the step with the bath and use the pastels.  That is the way that Brett recommends now.  And I generally like the lighter colors much better that the dark colors.

That for stopping by everybody
