Hi everyone!
I'm in the midst of assembling a rather cool looking yet unpainted clock. It's the wooden style with the door to protect the face...shaped like a house...you know the type?
It was going to be painted for the kitchen, but my darkside prevailed and it's now becoming a haunted house clock.
My dilemma is this: Is there anyone out there who could please direct me to a site where I can see how to paint "weather board" or "brick" onto a wooden surface, using acrylic paint? Each time I try doing blending of color onto the same brush, as with most highlighting techniques.
I'd be most grateful...thank you!!!!

I dont know any sites specifically, but I would imagine sites dedicated to making scenery miniatures (for warhammer, dungeons and dragons, or even model trains) would have some nice tutorials or discussion

there was a post on craftster featured maybe a month or so ago where a girl made some beautiful houses for dungeons and dragons miniatures..here it is:

I'm sure its much smaller, but its the painting techniques used that I would think would be universal. I'd totally check around for model train builders, those guys are pretty amazing

Sponge different colors over a base coat to make the texture.  Here's a no-pic tutorial for doing it to your walls, but I'm sure you could downscale it to what you need Smiley
