What did you use for the moss up the side? Is it just paint?

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...



That ceiling stain is just for you Wulf  Kiss

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....!

I love how your house turned out, Knickertwist. I wish I could work as quickly as you!

Last night I finished up the rest of my tiny books and decided to repaint the white on my bookshelf. I added a few odds and ends, and here's the result:






 I'm glad I went with brown instead of white. It looks more...stately. I may still add some more things, but I really like how it looks so far!
