Bits and Bobs

Here are some piccies of some odd jobs I've been doing around the studio on the sets! To make the stairs that George built look more authentic, I first painted them with a base coat of black, and then used the special effect spray paint over the top of the base coat to create a stoney appreance:
The next job to do was plastering the walls of the hallway set to add texture. Once the plaster had dried, I painted over the top of it with a grey base colour, and then added a grundge effect to the corners of the walls using black acrylic paint:
After Andy had painted a few coats of special green paint onto the pasty shop set as the main base colour, I focused on getting the bricks that I sculpted underneath the shop front complete. To start, I used up the grey paint from the hallway set by painting the brick texture a grey block colour. Once this was dry, I brushed a darker colour over the bricks by using a dry-brushing tecchnique with black acrylic paint, and this created a more 3D effect as the darker colour clung to the morter (however you spell it) between the bricks. To make the bricks look even more £D, I dry brushed a lighter colour over the tops pf the bricks to make them stand out a bit more. Here's the final effect:
