And try, try again.
I have just attempted a scenery project that was an utter failure, IMO.
As I mentioned on another recent thread, I had new pipes installed in my basement that stick out like a sore, rather white, thumb above a corner of my layout. Here they are:
One of our very creative Forum members suggested that I make clouds to hide or blend in with the white pipes.
This morning I got what I thought was a great idea to make the clouds: use crumpled up, white tissue paper and glue it to the pipes.
Are you ready for a laugh?
Take a look at this:
That tissue paper is now in the garbage.
I share this for 2 reasons: 1) to show that scenery is a process and initial attempts, at least for me, often fail, and 2) to get some of your ideas on how to create better clouds.
I have no idea, at this point, whether I will be able to make clouds to hide the pipes such that they are acceptable to me, but I have initially failed before at scenery projects and ultimately been satisfied with them, which makes their success even sweeter.
What do you think? Any suggestions on how to make clouds that will cover up the pipes?
