How Do You Paint Model Train Layout Villages?
“I’m here to tell you about how we’re making model villages. Now in the village of Clarksdale you’ll see how the buildings are painted to represent the real thing. As you can see, some of the buildings are made with the Photoshop process by photographing the actual textures but some of the buildings are used, I usually use a water-based paint, artist acrylic tube paints are usually used, mixed up and there’s a lot of model paints available in different colors, that usually on the rolling stock, not as much on the buildings. But you can see again, it’s got the tan colored paint on the cliffs below Clarksdale and to represent the dirt, an actual sand put on there and of course commercially available bushes and trees and uh, little scenes like the car wash up there in the little mesa, those are all commercially available. We have guys working in the street with little manhole covers.
