Barrow crossing

Despite being dragged around the Chalk Life festival and then on into Lewes, because Mrs F. wanted to buy an onion (probably for a Bank Holiday spell) I did manage to get an hour's modelling in on Edge. This time a little woodwork in the form of a barrow crossing which has been on the 'to do' list for quite a while.
No surprises in the construction: the thinner type of coffee stirrers for the nearer sections and the thicker Costa ones for the rear, all chopped into various widths and slightly different lengths. All stuck down with a bit of UHU and soaked in a watery wash of German grey and pale grey acrylic. I just need to touch-in the ballast with a bit of weedy growth around and about.
