First I want to thank those members who have been sending me suggestions for future Gallery Themes. Please keep the suggestions coming! Be patient, you will see your suggestions being used down the road.

This month's theme was suggested to me by Rick. Since we spent the last two months looking at great pictures of metal and wood, he thought that it was time to show some photos to make the stone masons happy.

So, dig out those photos (either model or prototype) featuring brick, block, stucco & stone (or any other such product that I've forgotten to mention.)

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Thanks for kicking off the month, Kris.

Here is a foundation look that would be great to model.

Stucco and exposed brick on an FSM structure (from the Houligan's Alley kit). This was my first and only attempt (thus far) at modeling stucco.

Work-in-progress, my CM (Model Masterpieces) roundhouse and blacksmith shop (build thread here: http://www.kitforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1007)

I need to do a bit more gray toning for the large stones (representing basalt/granite rather than sandstone/limestone) and then do some more weathering/toning with pastel powers/chalks.

The quick description of how I did this:
1. Prime with artist white gesso (thanks to Mike Tylick for this tip.)
2. Sponge-paint using make-up sponges and drybrush to color the stones, leaving the white color for the mortar. Run the sponges diagonally to the mortar lines (to keep paint from running into the lines.)
3. Then apply A&I wash to tone everything down and get some weathering back into the mortar.

The two main buildings are plaster kits. The little building to the far left is styrene, using the same technique.


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

This is a Walther’s Merchant’s Row I kit that I built for a Tidewater Division display layout.

This is a City Classics Penn Avenue Building kit built for the same layout.

Being very impressed and inspired by John Reid' brick making technique, in his "How I build Dioramas" thread, I decided to attempt the technique in 1/4" scale. I started small by building this chimney.

The stone part is carved from Plaster of Paris.

Then using the same paper technique I made this stone well.

I have since moved to a much larger project using the technique and hope to post pictures of it soon.

My "stone" building I made for a book article, it is made of cardboard covered in foam with carved stones.

Hi everyone, these topics are really great to have for reference, here are a few from me.
First up, and old barn foundation just outside Paris, Ontario.

Next the Paris Public Library.

And this was a wall on a residence, I thought was interesting.

That's it for now.

Wanted to start the month with a prototype picture to show how many colors of brick there can be in one wall.
