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 aStep n Style Ladies Traditional Jooti Ethnic Pakistani Zari Jutti Salwar Kameez shoes goldEasy USA Women's Canvas Retro Print Lightweight Ballet Flats 4-house set for Walking Dead DecoStain Women's Buckle Zipper Chunky BootieCallisto of California Womens Shelton Faux Leather Wedges Wedge Sandalsof 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, FASCINO women Sandals Womens Leather WhiteKeds Womens Champion Floral Jacquard SneakersI 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.Jomore Women Men Indoor Home Slippers,Anti-Slip House Sandal Bath Slipper Open ToeMusse & Cloud Womens Sisleysu Slide Sandal Agodor Womens High Heels Open Toe Knee High Summer Boots with Zip Rome Gladiator Sandals Classic Long shoesGiani Bernini Womens Oleesia Leather Closed Toe Ankle, Black PU, Size 7.0Once 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, Women's lace high Heeled Women's shoesOzone Women's Skull and Stiletto Knee High Sock, Khakibut my Classic Black Pump Patent 534; 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, Grandco Women Sandal Denim Turq Slide - BlackYork Zhu Women Flats - Fashion Casual Solid color Slip on Loafers Fisherman shoesso 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, HANBINGPO Genuine Leather Women Sandals Comfortable Wedges Women Summer shoes Mather Gladiator SandalsAeropostale Womens Neon Studded Sandalswhich 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 Gedigits Women's Stylish Buckle Strap Open Toe Block High Heels Platform Sandals Light bluee 7 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.Women's slim body with sexy knee-high heels snow bootsOushizhaoming Women's Fashion Mesh Breathable Garden shoes Sam Carle Womens Dress Pumps,Fish Mouth High Thin Heel Buckle Sequined Ankle Strap PumpI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep 1TO9 Womens Bead Toepost Style gold Soft Material Sandals - 7.5 B(M) US 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 Yyixianma Fashion Buckle 6.8cm Sandals Women Sexy Ladies Summer shoes 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.Dreamstar Women Boots Martin Boots Autumn Winter Suede Leather Low-Heeled Classic Fashion Retro shoescoloranimal Women and Mens High Top Canvas shoes Air Mesh Lightweight Sports Lace-up Sneakers WeiPoot Women Thong Toe Flats PU Soft Material Solid Sandals with Bows, Black, 8.5 B(M) USI 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.
