A little finger painting

Standard

with a little finger

There are always edges to things.  Everywhere: they all need treatment of some sort.  It’s a bit ‘picky-picky’ but some edges have already been dressed with removable sliders for removable walling and the naked ones stand out even more as a result. For example all the ground floor had a raw MDF edge, often as the lower part of a sandwich with tiles or wood flooring as the top layer.

Examples

This house has a number of different sandwiches that tell me they still need doing and today’s job is on the edge of the great hall and the kitchen.

On both these the edges the covering needs to be kept as thin as possible as there will be another section of removable house to be butted up to each of them – great hall + great hall extension; kitchen + allied offices such as dairy, buttery, flesh and game store etc.

Historic impulse buy

I’ve gone with Hornby Skale Scenics for model railways.  The edges are vertical and not even half an inch high, hence the little finger painting to daub both the glue and the powder mix.

Shot from above you can see how thin the coating can be and should allow the extension to still meet up closely

Still more sweeping up of excess to do but will leave till tomorrow when the glue should be good and dry.

Close up to the edge of the great hall and being given to a little whimsy in my old age, I have placed a mole so that she can live under the great hall extension, down among the bitty grass

Where next?

Now back to the attic where there is less of the whimsy and also a largish number of bare edges to be hidden around the second flat roof area.  All needs doing before the balustrade can be added here, somewhere even further down the line – perhaps next weekend?

These edges are a little more labour intensive. Going to need wood on the wall corners, bricks below the building on the right and the balustrades need creating. Like mole, it’s all “up we go” onwards and upwards etc
