Really good job on some of those. Really like the shape of Able. Just might have to make one similar. What did you use for the ribbing on butch and daisy? Looks like maybe mini pool noodles? Also, what technique did you use for finishing, black paint+dry brush+tea staining? Thanx

I used black pipe insulation from Home Depot. 1/2 inch cut in half. It's like a buck for a six foot piece. Cheaper than pool noodle and always available. My paint technique is dry lock first, it makes the styrofoam a bit tougher. Then black paint and then dry brush. Tea stain with thinned black paint and a green, brown.

Also another tip on the block pipe insulation. I use the new gorilla glue in a caulk gun. Available at Home Depot. Works well for foam, grabs fast. And I hold it I place with flat pinhead needles. Pull them out in about an hour. Use them again.
