My witch emporium is going to be grey stone and grey slate. Very much inspired by the houses I have passed taking my son backwards and forwards from Cheltenham. I want to avoid the inside from looking too flat and bland so I have experimented with this....I started with the stairs, which will be more or less completely hidden at the back.
I really like the granular texture and it adhered excellently, but I had primed the stairs first. I wish, maybe, that I had gone for the lighter can but the other materials are very light so I think this will be a good contrast. Then I decided to try and get a brick effect for the walls I am going to encase the stairs in ( I am doing everything to avoid having to put together banisters!! ).
I created the grid with very thin strips of masking tape, and then sprayed. I left it for about 15 minutes and then pulled off the masking tape. I had primed the MDF with grey so it looks like grey grout. Now if I can do the back without ruining the front I will be really happy with it.
The can of spray is from Homebase or Hobbyland, I think you can get it in both stores.
So what do you think?
Moving on I have a question... Does anyone know of a sign writer for 1.12 shops? I need to get the signs done for my shops. I have had a go but have failed miserably and it seems silly to mess up the whole project with a rubbish sign. Any ideas who to go to please.....
