The next step was to start preping the stove for the black paint so I sanded all the componats to the stove and applied a base coat to even the finish. I decied to use my air brush to apply the base colour and the main Black Mat as it gave a more even finish and I could get into the smaller spaces inside the stove , plus it was alot quicker drying time between coats and the coats were more even.
The |Next step was to decided on where to fit the Smoke Genorator and chimney before any paint was added to the stove to prevent and scratching or damge to the paint work. When I was happy with the position of the Smoke Genorator I then moved on to the real live in fire effect. I had bought some glowing coals which was a full unit but decided to have a go and make my own fire. I bought some Dolls House flickering flame blubs and wanted my fore to look like it was a wood burner. When I was out walking my Dog a collected small branches to make the log burner from.
