A bridge separates a medieval town

Greetings everyone,
This town consists of two doors lengthwise end to end, in the middle the doors dont line up, one has a slight curve to it. To cure this I separated the doors about 8 inches and put a bridge there. The difference in the doors doesnt show any longer. here are some shots.

A quick how to: RUST

Greetings everyone,
Heres a short pictorial on how to do rust.  If at some point youre creating old looking pieces, doing rust is a must. I have a couple of ways to do rust. The long way consists of 11 different color combinations. I've refined it down to 4 colors, white glue and real fine sand. i'm sure there are alot of ways to do rust, heres my way.

                                          Colors: Sedona Clay, Crocus Yellow, Black,
                                           Sepia, White Glue, Sand

                                          Black is the first color down

                                          White glue is next on the black

                                          Real sand from Palm beach Florida

                                           pour the sand over the glue, let dry

                                          First color on the sand...Sedona  clay  (Adobe Red)

                                          Crocus yellow mixed with Sedona clay

                                          Sepia dabbed here and there

                                           Here is what you will have

                                          When it is completely dry, colors will dull down

                                          Simple way to do rust
