Finishing Touches on Shop Set
The shop set is looking fantastic, Andy has done us proud as set engineer! The inside was looking pretty bare, so we initially painted the inner walls a creamy yellow colour and Andy glued on some varnished lolly sticks around the bottom half to look like wood panelling. They look really effective, but both the walls (inside and out) and the wood looked a bit too 'new,' whereas we wanted a more battered and rustic appearance. To achieve this effect, I dry-brushed a combination of lighter and darker tones of paint over the walls to grudge up the corners and edges, and then brushed a darker brown paint over the wood panelling to create more of a shadowing effect.
