"Starting with the base resin miniature, I focused on bringing out the textures of the stonework and thatched roofing. I applied an undercoat to prime the surface, which helped subsequent layers of paint adhere better and enhanced the overall finish. For the stone, I used a palette of greys, layering from darker shades in the recesses to lighter tones on the edges to create depth. The roof was given a warm, straw-coloured base, then dry brushed with lighter hues to replicate the look of sun-faded thatch. The grass on the roof was painted in varying shades of green to add to the realistic effect, and I carefully painted the weighted fishing net, adding small details to give the impression of stones. To complete the look, I painted the tiny windows and doors with precision, ensuring they fit the scale and ambience of the model. The entire painting process was done with patience, aiming to maintain the character and charm of a typical Scottish dwelling." - Stuart
