In the last post, I explained how to make a circular flowerbed. In this post, I will continue with how to paint it to give it a more realistic look like the left one in the picture below.
I used the following items for this project.
1. Paint all over the flowerbed with a lighter color, especially paying attention to the cracks.
2. Before the paint dries up, wipe most of it off with a sponge, leaving the paint in cracks.
3. Now with darker paint, paint the main surface to add a dirty look to it. Stop when you think it looks good!
You can use more layers of colors to give your flowerbed more complex and detailed look, but I will leave it to your imagination. A word of advice here, is to avoid using dark color for the cracks, as it tends to give more of a dungeon look than a Sylvanian look.
