Adding some Shingles

I got most of my new hobby studio set up, at least enough to do some work, and have begun the work on the roof of the Italian House.

I am using the Pantiles roof mold from Diorama Debris for this process. Using these molds does take some getting use to as it produces very thin castings. You must be patient and wait for the plaster to fully cure before even attempting to remove them or they will crumble. Once you have it down it goes fairly fast.

I highly recommend these molds, I have used a few with more to do and they produce stunning detail.

Price depends on the mold, so head on over and take a look at the selection. When you order from them, let them know Falcons Bench sent you!

Here you can see the results of my roof that I have started, I am loving the results!

Back to casting more tiles to finish off the roof!

My New Hobby Studio

I have been in the process of moving to a new studio over the last several weeks; most of the stuff is now moved in but the unpacking continues. Will start posting more once I get things settled into my new space!
