Here it is guys...

I though I'd use this birdhouse, to practice weathering... (my first time)





I read up on the weathering techniques.. but I realised I don't have any of the supplies that were talked about.. so after using a short stand of coarse bras wire ( to give it that "wood texture") I used gray primer, mixed brown, yellow and tan paints and lit the end of a popcycle stick on fire (blew it out) and rubed the tip over the surface. Rubbed everything down w/ a paper towel.

Then painted white.. and though i'd try the "flaking paint effect". I don't have any acrylics yet.. so I just used what I had... testors white spray. I sprayed... let it sit for about a minute.. and used a peice of painters tape to lift off some paint.. it worked nice ( although I'm sure using the right stuff would look even better)

Comments appreciated.
