Thank you!   Smiley  I'll try to remember to post a picture of it after my husband has finished painting it and placing people and automobiles - this is meant as a showcase for his scale model figures and cars.

OhMAN you guys are amazing!  I love that cobble stone look

I have a miniature item I just finished, but it's for a swap, so I can't show it yet.  I'm super happy with it though and can't wait to have other people see it Grin

To the sealer for egg carton, Matte Gel medium should work, or look for a clear matte finish spray sealer at the hardware store. It will soak up quite a bit of sealer. On the cheap, you might find that Elmers glue, dilluted 3 glue to 1 water might work as well and several coats. Test all of these before proceeding!

J_kieviet, do share some in progress photos!
Ludi, thank you although my efforts are amateurish next to your great work! The detail on the bridge is amazing!
CMarion, thanks for the tips! I'll have to get to the craft store and look for gel medium. I put a coat of minwax sealer that I had on hand, but your right it'll take a lot of coats since it soaked right in!

So a little update: I'm going for derilect mansion. My insperation is the Rothschild Mansion in Paris http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/02/28/the-rotting-rothschild-mansion-in-paris/ and the photos from urban explorer Andre Govia http://www.viralnova.com/abandoned-mansion-belgium/
But with a twist of my own. So I've started on the brick walls.
