The door is made from matchsticks glued together with a piece of corrugated paper glued to the back. The doorframe was constructed in the same manner. The door handle is a bit of floral wire bent into a "U" shape.
The piece was primed black. The barracks was painted light grey and given a black wash. Burnt Sienna was drybrushed on in areas to simulate rust. The door and doorframe were drybrushed from dark brown to tan and the handle was drybrushed silver.
Railroad ballast was applied to the base.
Be careful when applying washes to paper. When the piece got wet, the corrugation started separating from it's backing and bubbled all over. It had to be reglued. This was a very quick and simple project to complete.
