Some Notes on Painting SR Concrete Buildings:

Looking at photos, the SR Concrete PWay hut it is much more creamy/yellow than the weathered concrete which is much greyer. Having painted my huts a creamy yellow, I will try a thin wash in the lighter colour. (I know it's the wrong way round). Alas, the 'thin wash' was too strong.

Notice the difference in the colour photos between the SR concrete platform edging and the footbridge and how the concrete footbridges seem to darken in colour with age?

I will post more photos of my SR concrete platform edging (some for Christopher), footbridges (one is for Christopher) and huts, later. One footbridge (Cant Cove's) came out worse than the other so out will come the very fine sandpaper on one sand and repainting, later.

Now, I must get back to painting!

Indeed they do. As I was scrolling through the pictures my daughter said, " look, there's an aeroplane!"  ::)
