"Oh how dost one paint th' sill of a window so tiny! Without crooked brushstrokes, yet look so tidy?" ~ Shakespeare
I just came across a picture set I took but never posted. So I thought I would share it with you now.
Painting window sills on models is quite difficult and can make or break the fine look of it. So I thought I would try to put as much energy and patience as possible into the preparation rather than the execution.
My hands are still pretty steady, but not steady enough to attempt painting all these window sills with a tiny brush. That would be tedious. And tedious = not fun. A much better approach would be to do all the work up front, at my leisure, and then blast it all with and airbrush! Now thats fun!
Bingo! Straight and squared.
Use the knife to place the piece...
And there you go! Took some time investment, but the results are worth it. And its so much easier than trying to paint all those sills with a tiny brush. Yes sir! So much easier than using a brush!
