Today is a little bit works in progress, a little bit random/behind the scenes. This is what happens when projects get a little carried away and look to take longer than intended.

The hobby project that's turning into a big hobby project has been a trio of MDF houses. There's aMoon Boot WE Sport Mid Womens Boots UK 4 NavyConverse Men's Assist Team WR - Footwear Men's Footwear Men's Lifestyle shoes 4-house set for Walking Dead LZWSMGS Women's Leather Sandals Summer Large High Heels with Hollow High Heels Glamgoldus High Heels Ladies Sandals (color gold, Size 36)Women's Sandals Style Fashion Open Toe Buckle Flower Chain Pearl Thick Heel mid Heel Women's shoesof which I picked up 3 during a sale at some point or another. As my theater project got delayed (more on that some other time) I thought I'd just whip out these 3 houses. My method of whipping takes a while.

I've long been hesitant to paint MDF as stories of it drinking up paint are legendary. I've not really experienced it myself, but I've really been limited what I paint. The kits as they come are fairly plain. I went my favored route for home and instead of trying to paint interior walls, For What Reason New Listing Winter PU Plus Velvet Keep Warm Running shoes Sports shoes D9910ZANDINA Womens Handmade Fashion Ankle Strap High Heel Platform Party Winter BootsI went by Home Depot and picked up paint sample cards for Behr paint. These specific cards are really good for what I need. They're sized to cover most walls. There's a variety of colors. Nobody in Home Depot seems to notice or mind when I grab 4 samples of 10 colors and merrily walk out without buying anything.

I've learned the method that works best for me is to glue the card to the wall and then cut and trim the excess. Before this, I dry-fit everything together (this will come in important on that theater project story for some other time) to make sure I get rooms with the same color.European and American Sexy Women's Slippers Super High-Heeled SandalsComfortable and beautiful ladies sandals Sandals Summer Female Fashion Pointed Middle Heel Single shoes San hojas Women's Fashion Rhinestone Studded T-Strap Peep Toe Block Heel Mesh Sandals RedPropet Womens Walking Black - Footwear Women's Footwear Women's Walking shoesOnce the glue dries, excess is trimmed so the walls will fit flush, or as flush as I can make them, with each other and the floor. I tend to get a little overboard with the color choices. My house has tan (Gourmet Mushroom) walls throughout, but here I pick a different color for every room. It's colorful, if nothing else.

Interior window openings have been tricky in the past, with lots of mistakes learned. Just a square opening, thank you square hole punch, doesn't look right. Windows have trim. I tried a couple of craft-stick, fine - square toothpick - frames with 45 ° corners, Girl21 Genuine Leather Women Sandals Simple Shallow Pointed Toe Summer Elegant High Heels shoesSnakeskin Sexy Party shoes Women Stiletto High Heels Ankle Strap Ladies Sandalsbut my JaHGDU orange pink Red Women's Casual Sandals Slippers Thick-Soled Indoor Linen Slip Home Slippers for Women wasn't making consistent, flush cuts. Being lazy, I opted for and old fashioned square frame with longer top and bottom, and the sides are trimmed to fit between. With transparency film cut to fit the window and glued in before the paint card, it all makes for a decent window.

With the walls dry-fit into the base, I went ahead and glued all the walls together with some wood glue and let it all set for a day. Now it's ready for the next step. Ah, the next step. What is the next step? Notice the lack of doors?

I learn from my mistakes! Sometimes. The outer doors have openings for windows, AIWEIYi Women's Boots Peep Toe shoes High Heel Slim Stiletto Pumps Denim Ankle BootsWomen's Boots Fashionable Women's Boots Thick with High Heel Square Head 34-43 Yards Boots, Grey Black Beigeso I'll likely go the transparency film + toothpick frame route for those. The interior doors are very plain. I'm currently planning on printing out some door textures and gluing them on. Door textures may not be the proper term. There's some nice pics of interior doors on the Home Depot website that I'll likely be cropping and printing. I use Home Depot a lot for this stuff. Maybe I can get a sponsorship?

There's some other little details I'm going to print out and see how they look, but I'll save further explanation until we see if it's worth it. The one part I will mention is how the floors of these 3 houses work horribly for house floors. While I'm tempted to just print out floors, Stiletto High Heel Women's Fine with Spring New Net Red Wild Sexy Black Professional Shallow Mouth Single shoes Women Pumps Women shoesWomen's High Heels Sexy Hollow Stiletto shoes Fish Mouth Sandals Large Size shoeswhich is Plan B, I'm going to see how 1mm felt works as a carpet replacement. That's crazy, you say. Home Depot doesn't have 1mm felt! That's true. Hobby Lobby has felt!

Seeing as it took the better part of 2 weeks to get walls covered in color and glued, I'm not really sure how long to expect this next phase to take.

Segueing from Home Depot, it's clearance time of year. While I always drop in for coupon usage on PUMA Women's Rebel Mid WNS Velvet Rope BL Sneaker, Cordovan-Puma Silver, 10.5 M US I'll also wander the aisles looking for anything with a red sticker that I might one day use. This year that included some Brier Patch flock and a couple of water effects.GIY Women's Fashion Pointed Toe Dress Ankle Boots Chunky High Heeled Buckle Zipper Chelsea Short BootiesGIY Women's Wedge Paltform Sneakers Breathable Non Slip Lace up Athletic Casual Walking shoes Kensie Womens Bernadette Slouch BootI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep Pearl Izumi Women's X-Alp Seek Cycling shoes I'm going to try something or other before long. I picked up some random odds and ends while roaming the aisles, too. I was starting to run out of the Sand & Mud pigment that I use, so instead of using my coupon on primer I picked up pigment. I also picked up a couple of random packs of wood pieces, because sometimes I just need random wood pieces.

After watching Women's Fashion Peep Toe PU High Heel Spring Summer Sandals for Party Working Wedding I decided to pick some up. Most people talk about how these paints work well for painting lots of minis quickly, although the colors tend to come out flat and in pastels. The thing I noticed is that these paints seem to work well with skin tones and fabric.Tjori Purple & Beige Mgoldccan Embroidered BallerinaKOS Signature Women's Danko Bootie Sheepskin Slipper Sunshine-Family golden Chain Decoration, About 12 cm High-Heeled Women's Sandals.I paint a lot of skin tones and fabric! Contrast paints are described as a thick wash. I like to paint with a wash!

I made a list of the colors I would be most likely to use and headed out to The Deep to get what I could. They had 7 colors in stock. 5 of them were colors I wanted, so I picked them up. From there I went to the Warhammer Store, and discovered they were closed on Tuesdays. Luckily, Adam at work mentioned a Warhammer sale of some type at JCs House of Cards. I thought they were mainly a Magic The Gathering & card games of that ilk shop. Facebook listed Warhammer in their stock, so I took advantage of social media and asked if they carried/had in stock any contrast paint. They replied "yes, we have them all". That afternoon, I saw they did indeed have them all. And then I may have left with too many. But they had them all!

I'm going to practice with these on some Zombicide minis that will never see the light of day, just to get a feel for how they work.

With all the Walking Dead minis I've gotten over the past couple of years, I've been racking up Mantic Points/Proof of Purchase. The Mantic web store had some more things in stock, so I finally got my points together and placed an order. I needed 40 pts, which I managed to get together - I had to raid a couple of not-yet-opened boosters. I'm not sure I've ever mailed anything to England, but I visited my local USPS to ensure I had everything packed, addressed, and properly paid. Sometime in the next 3 weeks they should receive my points. Hopefully in the ensuing 3 weeks I'll get my point paid booty.
