"To achieve a similar finish on the brazier and campfire, I started with a fine brush and carefully applied a base coat to define the form and details. For the brazier, I used metallic paints to give it a weathered iron look, applying lighter and darker shades to suggest rust and age. The flames were painted with vibrant oranges and yellows, adding a touch of white for the hottest areas to convey the intensity of a real fire. The campfire was a pleasure to work on, carefully painting the stones and giving the wood a charred effect to reflect the look of burning logs. I enjoyed adding the small touches that bring these pieces to life on an 'O' gauge railway setup." - Stuart
