Steeple Chuch - Work in Progress - Day 3 - Grain

The walls of the church that I prepared last time didn't convinced me. I decided to enhance the grain of the wood to bring it as close to the scale as possible. On the picture below you can see the difference between 2 walls. On the left side the wall BEFORE and on the right side - the wall AFTER I worked on the grain. Don't you agree this piece looks older? The look I am going for...

Close up of the non-sanded walls with enhanced grain

I used a soldering iron

and blades, that I purchased from Micro-Mark, to enhance the grain.

I also managed to cut out pieces for the door today

Hopefully, tomorrow I will have more free time to dedicate to the Church, :)))

Hi Natalia! Your Church project looks very Promising.... and the glimpses of the doors is positively Intriguing! I see you work the same way I do.... many projects at once so you can switch to a new one if you can't make up your mind about something on one of them! This way you work when the inspiration is strong... and don't just rush to get it "done"! I have to confess that your Church is making me want to make a Church! LOL!!! (And I have not even completed my paintings in my Chapel!) I eagerly await your Doors...!!!

I realize that it is necessary with proper tool, but even if you have that, it's still incomprehensible that you are able to make these small and delicate carvings. They are very beautiful.
If you want aged look, well then you're right, the after it must be.

I love your doors!! They must be very difficult to make. So small and detailed.
Hugs Dorien

Hi Daydreamer! I am so glad to have MY own church and go there any time I want, :))) Isn't it a good idea? Can't wait to see your Chapel and finished paintings! Hugs, Natalia
