To finish the hearths I made some cap-stones, but they needed to go around the corner. I cut slightly in an off-cut and turned off the proxxon, turned the piece 90 degrees and cut again. The resulting corner is cut into pieces and rounded a bit with some scissors. I then stuck them into place and let the glue dry.

With the pieces glued solid into place I uses a pencil to round out the stones a bit.
Now the had a bit more solidity to them I roughed the up a bit.
Since this needed some precision, as I want the wall to be relatively smooth, I used one of my special tools. I’d like to claim this is my own invention, but I somehow feel I saw this on youtube at some point?
It’s an old paintbrush. I added a dollup of Greenstuff on both end. One was made into a small ball and the other into a tapered end. I then drenched this into superglue and some coarse sand. I can smudge, poke and roll this with some good precision anywhere I want to create some texture.
