I'm not sure what to do with the windows. I know there SHOULD be some broken glass in there but it's a sort of thick acrylic and I'm afraid if I try to punch it out that I'll damage the frame or just have goofy looking broken acrylic. If I had loads of time I'd punch away but I'm on a tight deadline so I think they'll have to stay as is  Undecided

Knickertwist, I absolutely LOVE the transformation that you've made with your "found house!" I cannot wait to see what you put on the inside Smiley

Is there some way to etch or paint the acrylic windows so they simply look cracked?

Wow, Knickertwist, it's coming along amazingly! I love how you've grunged up the outside of the house. What did you use for the moss up the side? Is it just paint? I was thinking of doing something similar with mine but was thinking along the line of vines/ivy. I'm just not sure how to make it 3-D and small enough.

The boarded up door is awesome! I like the suggestion of painting cracks in the windows. Maybe you can scratch up them up with an X-acto? You could also add some boards to them to make them a little more ominous.

I've been plugging away at my tiny books and love how they're turning out. Only problem is the kids love them, too, including the toddler who apparently thinks they're delicious. Smiley I hope to have my bookshelf done this week!

It's ground up herbs and glue with a bit of paint. I placed the glue where I wanted my "moss" then dabbed the powdered herbs on that. After it dried slightly I added some extra splotches of paint for effect.

I managed a big chunk of the interior last night/today. I hope to have it done on Friday so I'll save the pics for the house's own thread BUT here's a teaser of the interior...

AWESOME!  I love the marks on the walls from pictures being taken down, and the ceiling stain!  Perfect details!  Cheesy

Holy crap, knickertwist, I cannot believe the amount of truly inspired work you have accomplished in a very short time --just beautiful!

And, omg, I can't believe I've never thought of ceiling stains!  Definitely adding that to my to-do list.

And the draped furniture was a perfect suggestion.

The little details are what make your houses so much fun to look at!  The stain on the ceiling is very ominous and the boarded door is wonderful...reminds me of the boarded houses around here with the "Keep out" signs---shudder....!

Hey folks, I managed to get a load done and "The Abandoned House" has it's own thread here

ALSO I went ahead and tried to "break" the glass and it turned out pretty darned good Wink


Thanks for all the great ideas xoxo You helped a lot!
