hello all, this is how looks french house now afther I put the layer of spackle and I have clear the excess with a sponge. this layer is very important: simulate te concrete among the bricks and give a sensation of unity: if you see the previous photo without the layer you can see a lot of bits of cork glued against a structure but not really a wall. these is teh work of spackle layer give a sense of unity.

A beauty, and it looks so easy, I think I'll do one myself later today. Yeah, as if...
Looks impressive Carlos, can't wait to see some paint on this. And some Heraldic flags, or maybe washing lines instead...

Thanks for sharing Carlos.

Very nice Carlos, I like the large stone blockwork mixed in with the bricks.
The decorative roofline work is also outstanding.

The detail is great - check out how many frames are in the small window - 3 in such a small window - very good.

It looks fantastic, as all previous works.

P.S. Another question . What kind of spackle ( brand maybe) have you used?
