Hi Mike:
Hi Mike:

You pretty much came up with where I'd use formula #1. On white or other lighter colors. Such as very light gray.

Hi Mike:

I make three mixes of A&I in 16 oz. of 70% rubbing alcohol. 1 Tsp, 2 Tsp and 3 Tsp. I used the 2 Tsp. mix on the supply shed. Hope this helps.

Hi All:

Was talking with Karl O the other day about this kit. He didn't like the shingled walls and neither do I. I have made new Clapboard walls. They are painted eath with A&I stain and dry-brushed with gray.

Hi Loren:
