Had some time this evening to adding another layer of texture to the custom Hot Wheels Charger (Junkyard Charger). I started with a coat of flat brown textured paint. I think the textured paint adds the perfect scale of soil and fine gravel to the scene. After the textured paint, I went over the base with a maroon wash and then a light coat of brown grout, highlighted with black grout. I believe we’re ready for some plant material now. I have the next few days off, so I may fight the holiday crowd and pay a visit to Hobby Lobby to pick up some ground cover. I’ve watched some tutorials about making my own ground cover, so I may give that a try as well. I also printed and added a “for sale” sign to the back window of the Charger. I’d thought about doing that when I first started this custom and had initially changed my mind. Then it hit me last night that it needed a for sale sign to help tell the story. I also printed a “private property” sign and mounted it to a poll that will be part of the tiny scene. So far, I’m very pleased with how this is going. More soon!
