Thank you all for the kind words!

I decided to try something different... decay :D

I'll outline them in black and then do an overall airbrush treatment for weathering.

Ah! The iconic forica.

Very nicely done! Love the weathering.

I'd ask if you had modelled sponges on sticks but apparently there is now some scholarly debate as to whether they were as widely used as had been assumed or indeed if they were used at all.
There are 100 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who can work from incomplete data.

The slots would definitely suggest the use of the sticks, are scholars now wondering if they used sponges?

I've seen a couple of articles recently suggesting that (a) sponges are too expensive to use as toilet paper and (b) that sponges would not remain reliably attached to the stick.

As merely an interested amateur I can't speak to the relative cost of Roman sponges compared with the utility of the end product and I have no intention of attempting experimental archaeology to test the thesis that they would not be robust enough.

I remain intrigued none the less.

Impressive stuff!

I recognise several of the buildings, though mine haven't even been punched out of the frame!

You are an inspiration!
