A while back I only put up half of this unit, so heres the other half. On the bases,I did something a little different. I started with a 1/16 inch piece of basswood, I then took a piece of browncraft paper,dipped it in glue and laid it on the wood. I massaged
the paper to give it some texture. When that dried it looked like something that I could only get with clay. The painting sequence went like this: 4 shades of brown,
walnut,pinecone, autumn, toffee, then 2 shades of tan: trail tan and spice tan. The last two colors to go down was spice tan and white mix,and finish with a drybrush in antique white. I was satisfied with the way it turned out. Its the only set of figs I did this way. Hope its presentable and comments are always welcome
