Boiler House

Glen brought in the first part of a meat packing plant, the boiler house.  Because of the large windows, he decided to put in a boiler and some piping. While considering what to make the boiler out of an empty yogurt container fell to the floor, humm, and so a boiler was born.  Another trick he tried after studying a brick building in the area, was to use thinned plaster to highlight the grout lines in the brick walls.  The dilute plaster is spread over the painted walls and the wiped off.  If it looks over done, a damp cloth will remove the excess plaster.  After the plaster dried the structure was over painted with a black wash. Can't wait to see the rest of the factory.
