For painting ease, do not attach front pillars in greenware stage. Begin with
properly cleaned and fired 06 bisque. Thin down White and apply over entire
piece to get into all detail. When dry, apply another coat of undiluted White.
Allow to dry. Apply Hyacinth Blue in small areas wiping back for highlights
until entire piece is covered. Dampen a soft cloth with Solvent to wipe back
further highlights. Spray with Porcelain Mist to set TL. Reminder: In
this technique, sometimes more than 1 coat of TL is necessary so between each
coat, color must be sprayed in order not to lift first layer.
Apply Black TL to the cobblestones, sidewalk, metal
roof areas and very top of dome. Wipe back with Solvent to achieve a gray-tone
in cobblestones and sidewalk only. Spray. Randomly drybrush a few stones Light
Gray, Mink, Brick Red and Wedgewood Blue. Drybrush the sidewalk with Medium
Gray then tip into White to highlight a worn path into doors and on edges.
Lightly highlight cobblestones as well.
Use 3 coats of Walnut for the doors. After
applying first coat wipe back highlight in center of the door towards handle.
Spray and continue applying remaining coats. The handles are Flat Black.
For the brick, apply 1 coat of Red Maple. Spray.
Lightly drybrush brick with Holiday Red avoiding getting color into cracks.
Spray. Drybrush brick with Brick Red leaving some areas not as evenly covered.
Tip into Orange to add random highlights then into White to highlight further.
Apply Coal Gray all the stone trim and pillars.
Wipe pillars back both on the building and ones to be attached upon completion.
Spray. Evenly drybrush all these areas with 1 coat of Light Gray. Tip into
White to add highlights. For the pillars, drybrush a bit heavier then tip into
Portrait to add “blush” to the stone corners of building. With this same brush,
lightly stipple the top part of the stone trim on roof area.
For the dome and interior window frames, apply 2
coats of Antique Ivory. Spray. Drybrush highlights with Lemon Meringue.
Heavily drybrush the medallions as well then tip into White to further
Paint the window trims and dome dividers with
White. Accent the window keystones and stone trim with Black Forest then
highlight with Artichoke. Paint the scroll detail on the front above door with
Flat Black. Spray. Refer to photo for color placement.
Trim out the pillars with Venetian Gold then with
same color drybrush the metal roof area, top of dome and scroll detail. Tip
into Glorious Gold to highlight.
