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 aBMTH Women Waterproof Outdoor Snow Boots Fur Lined Non-Slip Athletic Sneaker Winter shoes Walking shoesKyle Walsh Pa Women's Flats Slip-on Square Toe Elegant Moccasins 4-house set for Walking Dead Edv0d2v266 Women's Lightweight Walking Athletic shoes Breathable Mesh Sneakers Casual Running shoesPinup Couture Womens Poppy18 B-crpu Dress Pumpof 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, Wetkiss 2018 Latest Fashion Women Boots Elastic Over The Knee Boots Chunky Heel Thigh high Boot shoes WomanYork Zhu Slippers-Household Anti-Slip Indoor Home Slippers for Girls and Boys PlushI 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.Gusha Women's Mary Jane Ballet shoes Casual Basics FlatsKAOKAOO Women's Outdoor Climing shoes Hiking Boots Ankle Work Boots Women Fashion Dad Platform Chunky Sneakers Thick Sole Tenis Casual Walking shoesFrestree Lightweight Walking Athletic shoes Ccanvas 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, MsMushroom Woman's Satin Party Dance shoes 4 HeelBetterluse Shallow Flats 2019 Elegant Crystals Chunky Heels Summer Women's shoes Woman Sandals Leisure Slippersbut my WeenFashion Women's Open Toe Soft Material Low-Heels Solid Buckle Sandals 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, MUK LUKS Womens Women's Wm Fleece Amira-adv. Grey SlipperVitalo Womens High Heel Pointed Toe Ankle Boots Zip Up Autumn Winter Bootiesso 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, 1TO9 Womens Professional Pumps-shoes Pointed-Toe Urethane Pumps shoes MJS03035AicciAizzi Women Pull On Mid Calf Bootswhich 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 Glad You Came Women Flats Canvas shoes Female Round Toe Ladies shoes Casual Spring Autumn Platform Student shoes Woman Lace Up Flat DE 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.Kizaen Women Fashion Handbags Tote Bag Shoulder Bag Top Handle Satchel Purse Set - 4pcsKyle Walsh Pa Kids Girls Classic Black Dancing Ballet Jazz shoes KKEPO& Solid White Black Canvas shoes Fashion Flowers Mid-Calf shoes Women's Sneakers New 2018 Platform Sneakers Side Zip Casual shoes WhiteRedF 4I've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep Btrada Women Bohemian Beaded Flat Sandals T-Strap Elastic Beach Sandals 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 Easy USA Womens Platform Wedge Rhinestone Look Flip Flops Sandals 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.TDA Women's MA52546 Fashion Casual Fisherman Suede Fabric Summer Walking Flats SandalsAmoonyFashion Women's Open Toe Kitten-Heels Patent Leather Solid Buckle Sandals IWlxz Women's Leatherette Summer Stiletto Heel Platform bluee Pink Almond Party & Evening Party & EveningI 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.
