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 aPleaser Womens Sky308mermd C Lblg Platform SandalWomen's Hiking shoes Breathable Lightweight Antiskid Cushioning Climbing Trekking 4-house set for Walking Dead WeenFashion Women's Buckle Closed-Toe Low-Heels Patent Leather Solid Sandals, AMGLX010385WeenFashion Women's Imitated Suede Solid Pull-On Open-Toe Kitten-Heels Sandals, AMGLX010129of 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, Lafoo gold Crystals Sexy Stilettos High Heels 12cm Pointed Toe Women PumpsL'Artiste by Spring Step Womens Belana SandalsI 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.YDN Women Open Toe D'Orsay Ballet Flat Sandals Comfort Slip On Summer Walking shoesSebago Womens Cyphon Sea Fisherman Boating shoes Reebok Women's Crossfit Nano 8.0 Cross Trainers WhiteAllhqFashion Women's Lace-Up Frosted Open-Toe Kitten-Heels Solid Sandals, FBULD015615Once 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, AllhqFashion Women's Closed Square Toe Sheepskin No Heel Solid Flats with Bowknot and Doug shoesWebb Perkin Women Fashion Zipper Round Toe Low Heel shoes Female Casual Plush Riding Boot Lady Knee High Bootsbut my Mamamoo Fashion Women's Sandals Pointed Toe Elegant Suede Leather Buckle Simple Women shoes 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, CJC Sandals Womens Fashion Closed Toe Women’s Leather High Heel Pumps Travel Shopping WorkWomen Pu Leather +rhinestone Pumps Party Wedding Shallow High Heelsso 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, Ting room Genuine Leather Ballet shoes Woman Slip On Boat shoes for Women Flats shoesWomen Crystal Sandals High Heel Kitzen Peep Toe Stilettos Ladies Fashion Summer shoes Size Pumps Ankle Strap Heel Wedding Partywhich 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 Women High Heels Sandals Closed Toe Cut Out Breathable Ladies Strap Buckle Slip On Casual shoes 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.Men's Peas shoes A Pedal Lazy shoes Men's shoes of The Trend of Wild Casual shoesLadies Womens Classic Slip On Pointed Toe High Heel Low Mid Kitten Heel Pumps Pointed Toe Work Court Pumps shoessize Breathable Lace Women Swing shoes Mid Heel Wedges Platform Sport shoes Thick Sole Lazy SneakersI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep CYBLING Women's Peep Toe High Heels Ankle Straps Buckle Platform Evening Party Prom 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 Women's shoes Winter Athletic shoes Hiking shoes Flat Heel Round Toe Snow Boots 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.Columbia Womens RogueTM F.k.t.TM Ii Hiking shoesLh yu Women Sandals Women's Thin High Heel Peep Fish Mouth Rhinestone Toe Pumps Dress Heels CAPE ROBBIN Women Velvet Open Toe Chunky Heel Sandal GD01I 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.
