I have been slowly working away at the bus- I'm going to try to actually keep at this project until I finish it. I need advice ........the bus is the home of a pig (that I still need to needlefelt) and at the end of the project I want the bus to have a really lived in, messy--slightly dirty and dingy looking feel to it. For some reason I am scared to death of that part of the project. I'm unsure how to even start making things look dingy and dirty. Do I just use really thin and watered down washes of brown paint? Will that look too heavy and I will mess everything up? I really like my progress so far, but I'm wondering if I should be adding the messy parts as I go along or if I should do it all at the end. If anyone out there has some words of advice, some tips or even tutorials they want to point me to I would be super grateful!
