The Gem gets some color

Hey all!

Okay, got the first few coats of paint down on the Gem Saloon... I did a brown/grey layer, followed by a grey layer, followed by a light tan layer.  I then did a few spots of brown wash (they are more noticeable in the photo than in real life.) I am going to do a few more stains, and then another drybrush to tie it all together a bit, but so far, I am happy with it.  Only one issue; on looking back at pictures of the Gem, the building is very new, so it is a lot more brown than the one I did.  I might need to look at doing something about that.

Any suggestions MORE than welcome!!

I can just picture Al Swearengen saying "Now that is how you scrub a fucking blood stain".

Great vignette.

Hah! Yeah, I did more work on the paint, and made sure to include a good blood stain on the floor:)

I'll have more tonight!
