Hi Allan
I love those two pictures of the cottages on the bank with the dried mud, full of detail and more inspiration for me to achieve more and more on my own buildings.
Thanks for posting
Jim

I just sit here with a smile on my face and shake my head Allan.

I have no idea how anyone manages to achieve this standard of modelling. That shot of the mill is mind blowing.

I do remember reading about, and then experimenting with your Colron wood dye many years ago.  My then wife thought it "too messy darling" but I don't think that was the only cause of the divorce .............:hmm:mutley:mutley

How did you do the dried mud in the harbour ?

Hi Alan, Hi Jim.

Pleased you're pleased, makes all this scanning buisiness, down sizing, cursing, ripping my hair out all worth while!

Anyway, what I want to know, is why won't an A4 Sized scanner scan A4 sized pictures!!!!!

So I have to remove the pages from the magazine, fold them to split up the pictures then the scanner is quite happy BUT - even then, not all pictures will upload into the picture gallery on the forum and furthermore, I really do hate computers!!!

However, more to come tomorrow, in fact the bad news is, there's loads of the stuff!!

CAT LITTER, Peter.

This is aN absorbant mineral from Arizona I believe thaT,  when mixed with water into a sludge like paste, spread where you want it spread then left to dry out for a good week, it will shrink alarmingly  resulting in a sun baked mud
 effect; it's also ideal for sun baked deserts.

How on earth did you discover that Allan ?

I'd guess delivery costs were rather high - or did you collect it yourself ............? :mutley:mutley

Hi Peter,

I didn't, the cat did !

After she had done her buisiness I started to wonder where all the liquids went so I spread out a fresh layer onto a piece of card, wet it then left it.

An hour later, it had all turned into a sludge so I left it on a shelf to dry out and about a week later -  hey presto, Polperro Harbour! 

Allan

Allan, if you use a free  editing program like Fast Stone ( not sure if their is one in Windows) but you can resize the JPG scan file to about 900-1000 pixels wide & that reduces the file size to allow uploading.

Thanks Ron, will be taking a look - not saying that I'll know what I'm looking at though!

Cheers and many thanks.

Allan.
