Materials Needed

To get started, make sure you have the following materials at hand:

  • Primer: Dark brown primer to prepare the surfaces.
  • Paints:
    • Light yellow for the initial dry brush.
    • Pale sand color for further highlights.
  • Brushes: Various sizes for priming, dry brushing, and detailing.
  • PVA Glue: For applying textures.
  • Scatter Materials: Sand, flock, and grit for realistic textures.
  • Soil: For creating a custom dirt mix for the roads.
  • Spray Bottle: For sealing the textures with a PVA and water mixture.
  • Rolling Pin: To pulverize the baked soil.

Step-by-Step Painting Process

Step 1: Priming Start by priming all components of the Peninsular Village with a dark brown primer. This base layer will help bring out the textures of the other colors applied later.

Step 2: Base Color Application Once the primer has dried, use a large brush to dry brush the walls and steps with a light yellow. This technique will pick up the raised details and enhance the three-dimensional aspect of the models.

Step 3: Detailing and Texture Next, apply a pale sand color with a smaller dry brush to add highlights and depth to the textures, focusing on the upper surfaces where light would naturally hit.

Step 4: Road and Landscape Prepare the road by spreading PVA glue evenly over its surface. Take the soil you have prepared by baking and crushing, and sprinkle it over the glue. For the surrounding landscape, apply a scatter of sand, flock, and grit everywhere except the walls and road to mimic the natural earth and grass.

Step 5: Final Touches and Assembly Once all individual elements are painted and textured, spray the entire model with a mixture of PVA and water to seal the materials. Begin assembling the scenery, placing vegetation and arranging the buildings to suit your layout.

Tips and Tricks

  • Always allow each layer of paint and glue to dry completely before proceeding to the next step to avoid smudging.
  • Experiment with different colors and techniques on spare pieces before applying them to the model to ensure satisfaction with the results.
  • Keep your brushes clean and dry them horizontally to extend their lifespan.
