Bonaparte Woollen Mill

The stone building are cast from a borrowed mold.  The castings were glued together and interior bracing was added, including roof bracing.  All the window and door sills were painted light grey.  Using earth tones, many individual stones were painted and a thin black wash was then applied to highlight mortar lines and stone detail. A plastic sheet of shingles painted light brown, was glued to the roof.  It was weathered with washes go green, grey, brown and black.  A total of 68 windows were painted, glassed and installed (actually some were covered over by doors, building extensions or just boarded over).  A brick office from the Delaney Iron Works, with it's bridged hallway was added to one side of the building.  Details were added and weathered.
