-- Board and batten siding how to.
-- Coloring stripwood with Prismacolor markers including evaluation.
-- Using Sandable Hard Gesso to represent concrete texture in HO scale.
-- Testing of colored graphite pencils to color rolled paper roofing paper stock edges.

INTRO AND THREAD GOALS:
I want to try using some construction and weathering techniques which are new, at least to myself, or which I want to modify to fit my modeling style. I feel that prior to continuing on to some craftsman kits and continuing a major project, I want to increase my wood weathering skills and stone carving/coloring techniques. Building some structures from Pat's plans will provide the opportunity to expand my skill sets and test different techniques.

As I'm using the build to test/play with techniques, I will not be constructing the structure as suggested in Harriman's book.

I will attempt to show/describe:
-- The effect or technique which I want to achieve or try out.
-- How I approached the effect/technique(s), what tools I used and in what order so that others may be able to reproduce the effect(s) should one wish to capture the effect or try out the technique.
-- The results of the various attempts, and what I think I may want to consider for the future.

My overall goal is to create a notebook for future reference. I hope the notebook will also contain your thoughts and suggestions as that will only add perspective to the notes.

I will not be building the structure to my usual standards as these builds will be in the sandbox. As such, I'll be building the models only to layout or front of layout quality. I probably will not keep any of the models, but will donate the completed structures or mini-dioramas to a few local clubs.

Build Goals:
1) Peeling paint using board-by-board clapboard siding.
2) Carved crumbling stone foundation(??)
3) Corrugated metal roofing with two different stages of weathering/coloring on opposite sides of the metal sheet.
4) Continue the study of laser cut window products in scratch building. Determine if over-sized sill looks strange.
5) Additional texture on individual stones in a carved stone foundation.
6) New documentation format.

Defines:
In the past two threads, the documentation format has made it difficult visually and I have restated various techniques multiple times. I will now only refer to a given technique by name and define the technique only once in the 'Defines'.

Tools and Techniques
This will become a subset of steps within the general construction sequence. The "Tools and Technique" header will indicate a new process or technique for future reference. The new or modified process will be denoted by using a letter following the general construction sequence number. For example:
Roof
1) Color sub-roof material with marker.
2) Measure and cut sub-roof.
Tools and Techniques
3a) Use new ACME corner cutter to cut sub-roof template.
4b) Squash coyote with roof underside to avoid coloring of top side.
5) Draw shingle row guidelines.

Lid Stain
1) Wire brush cut wood ends on both surfaces.
2) Stain stripwood cut ends with only minor wicking of stain solution.
3) Control the volume of stain applied by using only the stain remaining in the lid after shaking the solution bottle. It may be necessary to tilt the lid to obtain some of the solution.
4) Dip the wood into the stain and then pull the piece of wood between the forefinger and thumb, applying moderate pressure. Pull the wood with the fingers pinching the wood from the middle of the wood piece towards the end. This will pull the stain to the end of the wood piece.

For the following two techniques apply wash using brush hairs by ferrule to control volume of wash applied. (Use brush hairs between lines in drawing below.)



Brush Top - Pull
1) Use the brush hairs by the ferrule to control the amount of stain applied.
2) Load the brush with wash.
3) Lightly tap on paper towel to unload excessive stain.
4) Lightly touch brush hairs just below ferrule to wood piece and pull brush placing stain on the edge with extra stain going onto the surface opposite of pull.

Brush Top - Roll
1) Load brush with stain.
2) Lightly tap on paper towel to unload excessive stain.
3) Lightly lay brush hairs just below ferrule on wood edge and roll the brush to deposit the stain.
4) This allows some control of with amount of wicking by length of time in contact with the wood, the amount of brush pressure and the amount of wash loaded in the brush.

e-sand
Use emery board to sand object. Emery board may be cut to fit sanding need.

GP-sand
Use green paint and varnish stripper pad or kitchen scrub pad to sand surface. Fold or cut pad as needed.

sand
Standard sanding techniques using a sanding block, Northwest Shortline Tru-Sander, sanding wand or small 4-inch power sander such as a Jarmac.

Grain wood
1) Apply following to both surfaces of wood pieces.
2) Use file card or stiff welders wire brush (wire bristles stiffer than wire paint scraping brush) to add grain to wood. Draw, never push, the wood under the tool with medium pressure.
3) Use a brass or steel wire brush to add additional grain texture.
4) Scribe a few longer grain lines with tip of #11 blade.
5) Sand with green abrasive pad.

Polish wood
Use photo copy paper or emery board for baby finger nails to sand object lightly.

Brush ends
1)All stripwood surfaces or both sides of stripwood are held on flat surface.
2) Hold piece(s) flat on surface to to the cut end.
3) Use medium pressure and 6-8 strokes of a wire brush.
4) Brush needs to go from all bristles on flat surface onto wood end, going about 1/4 inch past the cut wood end.
5) Lid stain ends with light A-I wash or Silverwood unless otherwise noted.

Hi Everyone, I just noted that there have been quite a few views of the thread as I have been setting it up. Sorry for the multiple updates on the single entry, but I think I've got it now pretty much the way I want it to be presented. Thanks again for your patience.

Well, I decided to try a different approach to the siding and came up with a method of using Silverwood & Yellow Wood stains along with some Prismacolor markers to create lots of color variation within individual 1x8 scale clapboards.

I'll let those of you who are interested look at the results. I'll post in the next day or so the instructions to get to the point where I'm at, including detailed instructions on the use of the various stains, brush types and another dirty trick I've used to easily obtain the multicolored boards shown below.

Tools & Technique: Templates
Material:
A) Mat-board: Cresent Mfg.# 948. Two sides colored; beige/white.

1) Cut one long strip of mat board 56 scale foot long by 16 scale foot wide.
2) Cut long strip into two strips; 32 foot long and 24 foot long.
3) Square cut edges with True Sander.
4) Cut the 32 foot long strip into two 8 foot wide strips.
5) Square cut edges on True Sander.
6) Cut 6 inches off the two end pieces.
7) Cut the 24 foot long (short piece) into two 12 foot long pieces. These will be the end walls.
8) Mark the end walls with a line at 8 foot height. Use the side walls as a template to obtain the correct 8' height. This will insure that all walls are the same height.
9) Note on both sides the "top" and "Bottom" sections of the walls.
10) Cut one (or both) of the 32 foot by 8 foot walls in half. This will produce the two 16 foot by 8 foot walls for the structure sides. Note that there is also one (or two if cut earlier) practice walls.
11) Square all sides of walls with True Sander.
12) Measure and cut door and window openings. Cut window openings to fit Laser-Art Structures four pane window #BRA-727 with additional 2 scale inches in the vertical and horizontal for lining mat-board opening with 1x stripwood.
13) Measure and cut roof angles on end walls.
14) Color all edges, openings and both sides of the mat-board with Prismacolor French Grey 90%, PM-163.


Tools & Technique: Siding - Wood Grain, Base coloring and Knot Holes
Material: Kappler 12 inch lengths scale strip wood:
A) 1x8 (15)
B) 1x2 (1)
C) 1x10 (1)
D) 6x6 (scrap piece - used for marking clapboard spacing.)
E) Silverwood Stain (http://www.builders-in-scale.com/bis/parts-weather.html )
F) Prismacolor marker French Grey 60% #PM-160
G) Prismacolor marker French Grey 40% #PM-111
H) Prismacolor marker Cool Grey 50% #PM-112
I) Prismacolor marker Warm Grey 50% #PM-103
J) Prismacolor marker Parchment #PM-205
K) Prismacolor marker Sienna Brown #PM-65
L) Prismacolor marker Eggplant #PM-213
M) Yellow Wood Stain #132 ( http://www.builders-in-scale.com/bis/parts-weather.html )
N) Fan Brush 20/0 (http://www.hancockfabrics.com/Soft-Grip-Golden-Taklon-Fan-Brush-Size-20-0_stcVVproductId47603436VVviewprod.htm )
O) Light brown stain mix. 30:70 Noodler's non-waterproof ink Kiowa Pecan and ETOH. (http://www.refillfinder.com/catalog/bottled-ink/noodlers-ink-kiowa-pecan-bottled-ink-3oz-541.html )
P) Fine powered dirt. (Dirt sifted through 2 layers of woman's panty hose.)
Q) Delta Ceramcoat Paint, Charcoal #02136.

15) Grain both sides strip wood.
16) Add knot holes at random using a #64 wire bit in pin vice. I drilled a total of 17 holes.
17) GP-sand.
18) Stain all stripwood with one coat of Silverwood applied with dabber.
19) Color three 1x8 wood strips with PM-160, both sides.
20) Color both sides of remaining wood strips with PM-111.
21) GP-sand.
Note: When applying siding, cut individual siding into 8 foot lengths as needed and lid-stain prior to gluing to sub-wall. Some random boards with end brushing prior to lid-stain and applied to butt-joint will enhance weathered siding look, but do not brush ends on majority of siding.
22) Mark wall sides with vertical lines where structure frame would be. The lines will become cutting guides for the clapboard butt-joints.
23) Glue 1x2 kick board flush with bottom of wall edge. Allow to dry.
24) Cut a few strips of 1x8 into 8-foot lengths.
lid-stain all cut ends. Use light A-I wash for lid-stain.
25) Glue bottom 1x8's clapboard row flush with wall bottom. A small part of the boards will be over the 1x2 kicker applied earlier. Allow to dry.
26) Using a 6x6 square piece of stripwood held against the top edge of the first row of clapboards, mark the sub-wall at 6 inches.
27) Use a square or triangle and draw a guideline on the sub-wall for placement of the next clapboard row. This will provide about a 2 inch overlay on the clapboard siding, providing about a scale 6 inch exposed clapboard face. Make sure to keep guidelines horizontal on the wall by using a square or triangle flush with the vertical wall edge to draw the horizontal guidelines for applying the clapboards.
28) Add nail holes (if desired) to clapboard butt joints as the siding is being applied.
29) Cut siding to size and trim overhang edges flush with wall template edges and window/door openings as each siding board is glued into position.
30) On walls with all clapboards applied, color all mat-board, wood edges and openings with Prismacolor PM-112 using the fine tip.
Tools and Techniques: Weathering Siding
(31a) Using a 20/0 fan brush and diluted Yellow Wood Stain (dilute 50:50 with ETOH), lightly brush the siding horizontally using a semi-dry brush.
(32b) With wall still damp, repeat above process with diluted Yellow Wood/Silverwood (50:50).
(33c) With wall still damp, apply light A-I wash horizontally across siding.
(34d) With wall damp, apply light wash of light brown stain horizontally across wall.
(35e) With wall still damp, drybrush light A-I wash vertically, bottom to top of wall.
(36f) With wall still damp, using medium pressure and broad tip, draw PM-112 across wall vertically bottom to top of wall.
(37g) With wall still damp, repeat at random with PM-103, vertically bottom to top of wall.
(38h) With wall still damp, repeat at random with PM-205, vertically bottom to top of wall.
(39i) With wall still damp, repeat at random with PM-65, vertically bottom to top of wall. This will remove the green hues.
(40j) With wall still damp, repeat at random with PM-213, vertically bottom to top of wall.
(41k) Rub wall sides with fine powdered dirt using moderate pressure. This will remove the gloss/sheen from the walls.
(42l) Remove as much dirt as possible using a large soft brush, such as a #10 bright.
(43m) Using same brush, flood wall with clear ETOH, wiping brush horizontally.
(44n) Wipe off excess ETOH with paper towel or soft rag. Use light to moderate pressure and wipe horizontally with clapboard siding.
(45) Color wall interior with Delta Ceramcoat Charcoal #02136.

Window
Materials:
A) 1x10
B) 1x6
C) Light brown stain
D) Light A-I wash
E) Branchline Laser-Art 4-pane window #BRA-727 (http://www.branchline-trains.com/laserart_structures/parts/windows/windows.html )
F) Prismacolor marker Cocoa Bean #PM-214

(46) Grain and stain 1x10 sill piece with Silverwood followed with light brown A-I stain.
(47) Cut sill to fit and glue into place.
(48) Grain and stain 1x6. Cut to fit and frame the remaining three edges. Add header piece first.
(49) Color window parts with PM-214.
(50) Install window per window kit instructions.

Door
Materials:
A) 1x8 stained with light brown stain.

51) Line door opening with 1x8. (I used a 1x6 in error and will not have lip to cover clapboard siding. This may show up in the pictures.)
(52) Cut, end brush and lid-stain the three pieces to line the door. Instal the header first. Make sure all wood is flush with inside wall providing a lip for the siding.

Brace Walls
Materials:
A) Scrap 10x10
B) Delta Ceramcoat Paint, Charcoal #02136.



(53) Use 10x10 stripwood to brace walls.
(54) Paint all bracing the same dark color as used before on the interior walls. Allow to cure dry.

NOTE: Now is a good time to review scrap box/parts box for parts or possible mini-scenes to be added to build for extra detail. Widow shades??

Glue Walls Together
(55) Glue the walls together. Use squares to keep the walls vertical and structure square.
(56) Use 6-inch and 12-inch mill files and sanding blocks to match the long wall sides to the end roof angles.
(57) Touch up filed/sanded edges as needed with Prismacolor markers.

D) Silverwood
E) Prismacolor marker Cool Grey 60% #PM-113
F) Prismacolor marker Parchment #PM-205
G) Prismacolor marker Sienna Brown #PM-65

NOTE: Stain and color both sides of 1x8 to allow greater selection of wood colors to match siding.

(58) Grain 1x8 and then stain with Silverwood.
(59) Apply light brown wash to 1x8 with #2 soft filbert.
(60) Add random short lines using fine tip on PM-113.
(61) Repeat using fine tip on PM-205.
(62) Repeat using fine tip on PM-65.
(63) Cut stripwood into eight 10 scale foot lengths.
(64) Add corner trim, cutting trim flush with wall edges as trim is added.
(65) Use emery board nail file to sand trim edges flush with wall edges as needed.
(66) Brush Top-Roll light A-I wash on cut trim ends. Use a soft #2 round brush to apply the wash.
(67) Using the soft #2 round brush, dry-brush face and edges of trim with light A-I wash.

Kris great job on this cabin. And a great how to.

Looking forward on how you color the roof. I need to do one for the Ore Bin.

Thanks Jerry. Not sure of what you are after, but below are a couple of possibles.

The first picture is from the HO Silverado Mine build and I have lot's of documentation in the thread on how the coloring was done. ( http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=25712&whichpage=21 )

The second picture is where I'm trying to go with this cabin roof. The mine has more red/rust tones than the second picture. The second picture has a roof with more blue-grey over a violet tone, and this is what this practice roof is about, those blue-grey tones.

Just kind of a heads up on where I'm trying to go with this roof. I'm currently in the process of doing a few test panels to understand the dilution factors of the paint.

Hey Kris thanks. Some good examples there. I'm not sure but with the Ore Bin being in great shape I'm leaning toward a slightly weather look.

Color Roof
Materials:
A) Vallejo Burnt Cad. Red #034
B) Vallejo Grey Blue #061
C) Vallejo Black Red #035
D) Vallejo Violet Red #043
E) Vallejo Periscopes #309 - optional(Panzer Aces paint line)
F) FA-Water. (This is a solution of water with a Flow Aid added to assist in the acrylic paint to flow. The Flow Aid will help in providing a very thin wash, allowing base colors to show through.)



(94) Using a soft short mop brush (I'm using a 3/16th Wee Mop #5319S made by Silver) and a light stipple, color the roof with a wash of the Vallejo #034 and water in a 1:4 ratio. Allow to cure dry.
----NOTE: In the pictures below you can see the roof example being used as a color guide. In the close-up picture, note the roof panel on the ground, and the hue of the unexposed rust. This is the base color which I'm trying to capture in this step. You can see this in the deeply colored edges of the roof. I know it's scary now, but I have been known to post pictures of fuchsia colored water tanks in the past, so please bear with me.

(95) Using a soft #5 round, color the roof with a stipple technique. Use Vallejo #061 in a light wash. The wash solution is 1:8 paint:FA-water.
(96) Immediately after applying the grey-blue wash, hold the structure so the roof is vertical and touch the long roof edge to a paper towel to draw off any excess wash. Do this for both sides of the roof. Allow to dry for approximately 20 minutes.
(97) Using a 12/0 fan brush mini ( http://www.jerrysartarama.com/discount-art-supplies/brushes-and-palette-knives/micro-mini-brushes.htm ) and using a moderate dry-brush, apply a light wash of Vallejo #35, brushing from the roof bottom to the top. The wash is 1:6 paint:FA-water.
(98) Immediately after applying the wash, remove excess wash as in step #96. Allow the roof to fully dry.
