Hi All:

Started working on the laser cut framing walls. I did this by the instructions and want to know how you think it looks.

Wall is coated with clear alcohol and then brushed with chalk powders. I used light brown and rust colored chalk powder.

Let me know what you think.

I think the color looks great so far. 

You'll have plenty of opportunity to experiment since this kit has like 2 lbs of strip wood lol.

Hey All:

Got some more walls done. I didn't think I was going to like this but it is a pretty coll way to color the walls.

Here's another pic.

I'm following along, too.  The wall coloring looks good - the big issue with this coloring technique is not getting things too dark.

Karl, what's the plan for floors in the shops?  That's something I kinda agonized over in my roundhouse, and wasn't quite happy with my final solution there.
