      Well, crud! My photos are disappearing! Fat lot of good that does this thread. No sense in posting further updates here if the photos are going to vanish.

      looks really good!

       

      but i got questions.

       

      did you treat the moss, to stay green?

      how, and with what colors did you make the rocks?

      The moss is from the craft store (Michael's) so I'd presume it's been treated. How, I don't know.

       

      The rocks are painted with washes of dilute earth tones, starting with a yellow, tan, and brown in splotches here and there, then everything washed over with a dilute dark grey. The results looked a whole lot better in the videos on YouTube than what I got. For some reason, the hydrocal I used didn't absorb the washes evenly. Maybe there was some mold release left in the molds or something from the previous owners, I don't know. The result is rocks that aren't quite as evenly-colored as I was hoping to achieve, but they still turned out okay.

      I saw a set in Nicholas Smith's one day and the price was right. 

      I didn't get all that elaborate with a story or a reason to buy it. I just picked a name for it and laid down some track.

       

      10 years later, still "in progress". 

      Then Bart got into it and turned me on to a website with 0 scale buildings you could print out on poster board. 

      That's what the Ice House is made from.

      and I'll be damned if I can remember the name of it.

      I love following these 0 scale threads.  They give me ideaso for my basement.

      Kevin your Facebook photos are incredible. Wonder why they will not show up here?? Love the log load, a good way to recycle a household chore.

      Been doing that myself with proceeds from the "honey do list."
