Middle East: The use of muted colours when making an architectural model
As architectural model makers we often get asked to produce models which overemphasise colours especially greens for landscaping and trees in the hope the model portrays a look of a fertile environment. When making models for the London market the complete opposite is expected with models showing muted and washed out colours which are toned down to match a models scale. It is important to remember when making a model that colours require scaling too as well as the building elements. Landscaping, trees and street furniture should blend in with the model in both size and colour.
