Tower House In Progress

The exterior "stonework" is finished; a total of nearly two thousand individual pieces. I add them one at a time because this technique results in slight variations, making the surface appear more realistic. The gothic doorway is in the 15th Century style. The roof structure won't be attached until it is finished, to make texturing and painting it and the back side of the crenellations less of a challenge.

The next step is to add texture to the stones with acrylic gesso. Then it can be painted.
