I made good progress on the front door today. I was quite pleased because I managed to use the floor that I had made for the hall for the stonework... and it turned out ok. I used a base of grey and brown acrylic paint, and then did several washes with watercolours, treating each stone separately to give it a natural feel.
I might darken the edges some more before varnishing, though the camera flash makes it appear much lighter.
I made the door out of wooden floorboards and used the hardware I had bought earlier from Sussex Crafts. The nails are black headpins. I liked using them as all I had to do was cut the head off with wire cutters, drill a hole and pop it in with some glue. Much easier I found that trying to hammer in tiny pins!
The door needs another coat of wax after a good clean with damp cloth - there is dust everywhere!
The windows had the same stonework applied. I have a lot of windows to make!
