Chanticleer landscaping

Getting started on the Chanticleer landscaping. I sculpted and painted builder's foam that I used for the base, and have added moss. I plan a tree, vines, and flowers, so I have a lot more work to do, but I'm happy with it so far. :D

That looks phenomenal!  Is that a kit that you put together?  I love that red trim you did.  What brand and color is that specifically?

Thank you! :D 

I think you are asking if the house is a kit. Yes, look through my album and you will see this is the Greenleaf Chantilly in half scale. I have modified the kit by reversing the floorplan, removing the eaves and changing the roof line on the dormers, and removing the dormer and windows on the right side of the house and replacing them with a chimney. The exterior is egg carton stone that I did by hand.

The base is not a kit. It's just a sheet of 1/4 inch plywood with builder's foam cut, sculpted and glued into place. :D

Oops, forgot to add, the trim color is red oxide acrylic paint by Liquidtex. :D

Well, everything you did looks great.  I tried some Liquitex acrylics before and found them to be not entirely opaque like other acrylics.  Did you specifically find opaque in that brand, or does it just need lots of coats?

The rock work looks great!... I particularly like the addition of moss. :)

I feel like the bottom row of stone on the house needs some too.... Or else the little homeowner has been very diligent keeping the ground moss off the house. :D

There will definitely be more moss. The house has piers, but isn't permanently attached to the base yet. I've still got some wiring to do. :D
