Painting the benchwork

Big Job but short entry.  Lela and I painted the benchwork prior to the ops session on Friday.  We used a grey blue primer to match the ceiling.  Then I taped off the partical board layout surface/edge and used a large round brush and punched in my tree and background paint mix using black and yellow to make green shades,  This gave some foreground green to match the layout scenery and added depth to the layout.  The resulting rolled edge on the 2X4 benchwork was effective.
