I know I told Mike that I would not start another project until I finished his house. I just couldn't get my little Spanish Revival House out of my mind.
I wanted walls that were thicker than cardstock and easier to cut than wood. I decided to try this styrofoam plate. I'm saving the environment from yet another plate being tossed into the trash too!
I mixed up a pot of lightweight spackle, clear tacky glue and adobe wash paint. I wasn't sure that the spackle alone would stick to the foam. Adding the paint to the mix saves a step too.
I roughly cut out some of the walls then applied the stucco with a brush. I need to become better acquainted with my Exacto knife. I cut these with small scissors.
It looks like the styrofoam will hold its shape just fine. I like the color and the way the "stucco" looks.
This is enough for tonight. I need to find more plates. I got this one at work. Seems I'm always finding things at work to use for mini-making!
