I made these little ones for a class project, and it turned out to be a lot of fun



I even remembered to take some in progress shots! Cheesy

this is the Styrofoam heated carving thing i used to carve the bricks out


i didnt have styrofoam, so i peeled the paper off some foamboard





some distressing


paint




then i cut out windows, made stairs, and used those home depot granite and wood samples for the detailing and doors.


i also made some hedges and railings.

Nice!  But beware of burning styrofoam, everyone, it's so evil....

You did a great job. The coloring for the brick is spot on and the distressing details give it a lot of character.

I have to agree with the comment on the detail and I would never have guessed this was styrofoam; which I saw this it looked similar to a brownstone I rented and thought it was a painting.  Awesome job!

Wonderful. Must have taken you ages to do all those bricks.  What paint do you use on styrofoam?

I spray painted them with a matte white, and then used brown and red water color for the brick color. The nice thing about the water color is that it doesn't paint evenly so the brick looks more authentic. Though even after it dries it kinda has this sticky feeling. I'd probably put some kind of clear coat over it if it was going to be handled often.

It's called a Styrocutter Plus. I got it at Michael's for a little over 20 bucks
