Supplies needed for this Project:
Proxxon Table Saw
Proxxon Band Saw
Proxxon Delta Sander
Plaid Paints (Regular Acrylics, Color Shift Acrylics, Dragonfly Glaze & Extreme Glitter)
Cup of water to clean brushes
Dyan Reaveley Paint Pen (black)
3/4" Piece of wood
Pencil to draw pattern onto board
Each one of the wooden houses were 4" across but the roofs were all different. After drawing the houses onto the board that was used in this project, each one of the houses was cut apart with the Proxxon Table Saw.
The Proxxon Band Saw was used to cut the different shapes of the roofs on the houses.
After all of the houses were cut out it was time to sand the edges smooth with the Proxxon Delta Sander
After painting the houses all over with some White Gesso use the Plaid Color Shift and Dragonfly glaze paint to paint the bottom part of each one of the houses.
After using the Plaid Color Shift and Dragonfly Glaze to paint the bottom part of each house use your imagination to texture your roofs. Embossing powders were used on two of the roofs, one had copper tape used to create a roof that was different and a very thin multi-colored metal tape was used for another roof. Make each one different and unique, think outside the box. Use the regular acrylics to paint foliage on the front of the houses and different paints for the doors. You can use regular white acrylic paint to make the windows and the Dyan Reaveley black paint pen to draw the windows.
Since the wood was 3/4" thick you don't need anything to help the houses to stand up, they can stand on their own. This is another simple project that leaves you with some great results. You can also make them look like journal pages of sorts with all manner of embellishments. You are only limited by your own imagination.
I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you leave a comment below as I do read them. Thanks to Proxxon and Plaid for giving us the means to create as we do. Enjoy!!
