How To Paint Stone & Stucco

Stone or stucco buildings are really common around the world and they have some wonderful colours and effects that we can capture in model form. This video shows how to easily paint stone or stucco.

We’re continuing to use the Diorama Blitz Kino model sent to me by Doug Foscale and I’ve decided to create a stucco stone effect with some peeling paint and stucco in some areas only.
