Decided to put together a little farmstand scene for a basing project. Split pieces of balsa wood to give a rough lumber approach, now I'm considering how to do painting/sealing on it, as I have minimal experience w Balsa. Want to keep all that little wood grain that popped up when I split them visible. Going to paint it slightly darker with acrylic browns, and then some slightly darker spots and lighter drybrush highlights to accentuate the grain. Should I gesso, or stain the balsa before working on it? Can I just work straight on it and seal it with a varnish afterwards? Any balsa wood experience/suggestions appreciated.
Just started with my clear stands. I bought 1cm clear tubes with 6mm holes. Also bought 6mm clear rods, but they were 6,2mm, so I had a lot of work to get them to fit in the holes. The next rods will be more clear as this one. In the moment I can put one saucer on 5 Deadzone height level. I still need to make a base (or use the original one) and get magnets so the saucer on the top can be removed easily. - Only difference to this picture I made it that I glued a rod filling most of the tube, showing out of the top. In the bottom I can connect other parts. - The first tube under the saucer is smaller than the others, together with the saucer height (incl. Dome), it reach 3 inch. - all the other tubes are 3 inch tall.
