I began by chamfering the edges then added some putty to give ridges for rows of potatoes.
The planks are wide coffee stirrers roughly snapped whilst the raised beds are narrow ones. The bean poles are are simply wire spears from which I've snipped the sharp points.
The holes were drilled at a slight angle as the steel wire can be tricky to bend in to place. Super glue gel holds the the cross piece in place.
A good coat of PVA and a variety of sand/grit finishes off the construction.
I used the following paints to get a good earthy colour:
- Americana Dark Chocolate
- Americana Milk Chocolate
- American Honey Brown
- VMC Dark Sand
Then it was out with the grass, foliage and tufts!
Thanks for looking!
