Refugee Shanties for Lebanon 1982

Started work on some of the ramshackle buildings for Lebanon 1982. I'm trying to do these fast and dirty using pre-made boxes as the base. In the instance below it is one of the heavy duty paper mache boxes you can find at a craft store.

The box was cut for doors and then primed black, then dusted with a flat khaki.

Following that I did some rough brushing and then dry brushing with an off white and gun metal to give it that "lived in" look. The block work was actually scribed in, I'm going to put more effort into the next one. About 8 more of these to go!
