I wanted to thank everyone who left comments on my previous post. Supported by your encouragement almost all day yesterday I spent making bricks and applying them to the house. When the entire house was covered with bricks I took it to the porch and sprayed with a gray color a little bit.
Now it looks like after the fire, but we can't be afraid of change, true? At least, now the house is talking to me.
Actually, I liked the result. It is still not finished and not perfect but it is closer to what I wanted to see.
I also weathered shingles and they don't look shiny gold anymore...
For the bricks I used DAS clay
It doesn't hurt to admit we all do mistakes. The important part of making them is accepting and talking about them, finding the solution and not giving up. I had so many projects started and forgotten just because of a fear of a possibility of ruining them. In some way your support helped me to overcome that fear and keep working.
I am leaving for the Good Sam show in San Jose, California in one day and will be back only after the 20th of October. I am excited that this time at the show I am not only dealing, but taking 2 classes about which I will tell you later. So, Vanessa's mansion will be left in the condition you see it today and it will give me time to clear up my thoughts about what to do next.
Have a great day!
