What really caught my attention was the fantastic weathering on the fence out back. Super realistic detail!
Your going to love this one Gnatshop but it took all of ten to fifteen minutes to make the fence! Here's what I did.
1.) Fence is a plastic fence from Central Valley and is spray painted with grey primer and set aside to dry.
2.) The fence was then drybrushed with acrylic raw sienna paint. That's the same paint I used for the trim work on Nelson's pharmacy.
3.) Various brown colored chalks where then brushed onto the fence. Some of the chalk actually blended with the wet paint on the fence since it wasn't totally dry when I started adding the chalk weather.
Now some of you may know that this is another George Sellios method. It's talked about on Allen Keller's first video on the Franklin and South Manchester RR. Why re-invent the wheel when George has already figured out a fast, easy and fantastic looking method for doing fences. You could do the same thing with a basswood fence if you wish. Give it a try!
