I'll start in the instructions in a couple of weeks but I have a few copies I could sell right now. For these, I would prefer not to add them to the catalog until after I have at least some basic instructions for them. Otherwise I will be answering lots of questions on how to use these. However, if you are the adventurous type and have your own ideas on how to use them, here's what they are:
Mold #251 Plaster panels (Have a few ready - $29.00)
Mold #224 Wooden panels (Have a few ready - $29.00)
Mold #225 Wooden beams (Have a few ready - $29.00) Also includes one simple window and some wooden decorations.
I have not tested these yet so it's possible that there may be some problem with them that I am not aware of.
For the plaster panels and wood beams:
1) Basically, you glue the 1/8" thin plaster panels down to thin stock such as a cereal box.
2) When dry, cut around it to form the front of your house walls.
3) Flip them over and glue a mirror image of plaster panels on the back.
4) When dry, paint both sides a tan color (spray paint or brush).
5) Stain with shoe polish or wood stain. This will finish the plaster wall sections.
6) The wooden beams will be painted separately before glued on.
7) Stick the wooden beams down to a piece of cardboard with double stick tape.
8.) Spray paint them brown.
9) Dry brush them light brown.
10) Glue the beams over the seams in the plaster. The wall section is finished.
There are a few tricks to this such as:
1) Starting with the pointed roof section first and working down.
2) Making your wall section in even inch measurements.
3) Side house walls are 3" tall.
4) Lay the plaster panels so there are no horizontal seam lines in the upper 2" of the walls.
5) All window openings are in 1" increments. But if you want to glue the windows onto a solid wall, then it doesn't matter.
6) The decorative pieces on the wooden beam mold are to fill in the lower 1" strip along the bottom of the wall.
7) Wooden beam are usually not centered over the seams in the plaster. Instead they usually rest on one side of the seam. This will still cover the seam but also allows the beams to be used in 1/4" increments.
As I mentioned before, it's probably better to wait for the instructions. However, I do have a few copies for sale right now.
I will finish these two other molds before starting the basic instructions.
Mold #258 Stone panels (currently sculpting)
Mold #259 Rubble bridge (next in line to be sculpted)
Anyway, that's where this project is at so far.
