Creating a Sylvanian Home (Part 3)

Managed to spray the roof of my SF house as well as prime the door and some of the windows:




I used Tamiya's Linoleum Deck Brown Spray Paint for this. Their spray paint is specifically for plastic so I had no problems with flaking. The paint goes on really well and dries pretty quick. I could apply a second coat after about 30 minutes. It also has a very nice matt finish, unlike other spray paints which often give this semi-glossy look.



Sadly, I got alot of paint on the walls this time :(


I tried using Mr Color Thinner to remove the excess paint but it could only remove some parts of it. One of the walls is badly stained because I didn't fully cover that area with some paper / tape. Silly me. I thought the paint wouldn't be able to get on there but I was wrong:


I had plan to leave the walls in it's original color because I couldn't find a nice shade of yellow to match the roof. But that's alright, I guess I'll just have to pick a color for the walls now :)

  1. Great house! I love the colour. I wouldn't worry about the staining, it's hardly noticeable :)

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment ^^ The staining is quite noticeable in real life, but it can easily be covered. This just means more work >< Frankly speaking, I find taping to be the most tiring and time consuming. Even so, I still manage to leave out areas that needed to be covered :(
