Have watched a couple if this ladies Cardboard Building builds. I say you can always learn, though the methods are crude in the extreme using Corrugated Cardboard. The techniques would work well for an indoor building particularly someone lacking Scratch Building Confidence, perhaps giving that confidence to move on and build out of Materials that would work in the Garden.

Keep patience with this Vid till the end.

The Buildings come to life when she paints them and this one nicely shows Dry Brushing techniques, so usefull in many other areas of weathering.

Fire up those Hot Glue Guns!

Looks interesting, but too long to watch at the moment. Will try to remember to catch it later.

Have to say I found the Music and Build very soothing after a frantic evening where my mind was all keyed up.

I suppose the same technique could be used with foam board and plasticard for outdoor use.

I wish she would learn to cut away from her hand with a Stanley knife, though. Made my toes curl a couple of times .....:eek:

See no reason why not but I think I would spray Plasticard Black then do the colouring to ensure no UV Damage. As for her cutting. Well yes there are some worries but even worse with some other vids by guys using Plastic Rulers to cut with a Stanley Knife, real finger chopping good experience. One even managed a finger bandage part way through the vid!

I counted 10 fingers at the beginning and I'm sure there were 10 at the end, but........we're they the same hands?:tmi::tmi::tmi:
