Schramm Scratchbuild
« on: August 21, 2017, 11:56:31 AM »
Hello All,
 So this is Mystery Scratch build installment #2. The last one went sooo quick, that my head almost spun around. Let see if I can stump the masses this time. Here is the main building pieces cut out.....I had not planned on building this, but I had some Aged Clapboard siding from North Eastern Scale, that I was dying to try....Anyways good luck, and let the Guessing begin.......

So, now that the build has ben guessed, here is the progress so far. I first stained the walls with the Folkart Driftwood pickling wash. Than I has a paint match done for Depot Buff, which I applied by wiping small amounts on with a cloth. I dry brushed with desert sand, and than a light ink wash. Hit some random boards with Maple stain. Also back to building more doors,,,, Still have to get rid of the Fuzzies,,, Thanks for taking a look...

your speed makes me look like a slacker! I really like the aged clapboard from North Eastern- I have used it for all my builds so far.  I so need to try making my own freight doors.

Bob,
 Some people model at their own speed, mine happen to be hyper speed. (why I have a hair dryer next to the work area). As they say "the tortoise wins the race"

Our daughter-in-law is a hairdresser. Doubt your hair dryer is the typhoon model she uses. What wattage IS the dryer you use, please?
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Very nice work Loren. The colors look great. I wonder if you use a hair dryer on wet paint if you will get the peeling paint look?

BandOguy,
 I had a little compact travel one laying around, that I bought years ago. I think it is a Conair. Has a folding handle. Has a high, and low speed, and a cool button. I am sure they still make it.

Curt,
 Thanks for the compliment. the hair dryer does not really effect the paint. What I have noticed, is that the grain in the wood comes right back, and in some cases gets more pronounced, by adding the heat. On the Crocker Bro build, I watched as the grain opened back up as I was drying it. I have now made this a practice, before I add any ink wash to deepen the grain.

Hey All,
 I was in the process, of building the woodshop platform, for Schramm, and wanted to try something different. I have never tried coloring with chalks on wood, so this was new ground for me. In the photos you will see the following steps:

1) wood treated with Driftwood pickling stain, and charcoal gray, and medium brown chalk added.
2) A dirty gray chalk wash added to the wood.
3) A ink washed applied.
4) The boards sanded with 300 grit, to bring out the grain, and represent wear.
5) A very light brown leather dye wash added.

And the final product. I am pretty please with the results......
Thanks for taking a look..

Those came out very nice, Loren.  I love "experimental model railroading" where people try things and document how they do (or do not!) work out.
