I'm not sure I like the top link is much. The basic technique is known as the Sweet and Sour method and generally will give you the silver looking wood common in the west. The pdf is a much better resource since it contains both that method as well as a number of others.

Hi everyone!

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but this one was pointed out to me recently. I know the people at Aetherworks, and have painted up a few of their buildings before, as well as seen others that have been painted up. The detail is deep enough so that they can be painted without clogging them. They have some painted examples on http://www.aetherworks.com.au/ that I know have been painted with standard craft and house paint, more often than not unthinned; just taken straight out of the pot. Providing you actually brush it into the cracks of the details (Not just spoon a glob of paint onto the surface and hope it goes OK, which I don't think anyone here would do anyway), the wood will actually soak up some of the paint, so it helps keep the details visible.

Also, I think I'll have to try that sweet and sour technique on some of mine. It looks pretty interesting, and I've been after a similar effect for a while.

Awesome looking town there!
I'll fight it, but I won't kill it. Now, what about my dynamite?
