The card ventilation sheets were clamped together about 30 at a time & drilled with a sharp suitable drill.
a lot quicker than using a plier punch & doing 20 holes individually per sheet in about 60 sheets.
clamped together, & holding the top sheet down close to the drill with a pair fine nose pliers gives clean cut holes

 heavy duty top, on removable trestles, make full use of fork lift!
for flexible use of work space during harvest / non harvest periods

When I redrew the apple boxes, & removed the black lines, I decided that if I also did it to the printing on the pallet loads it would have no definition of separate boxes, so left the lines on there but wrapped the pallets with cling film, as in real life, whitch softens the look a bit

There's a long way to go yet!!
the mortar joins in the wall were bugging me
sorta overstated . 

So

apply coat of slurpy mix acrylic/pva/fine sand/ water, to smooth edges of stones, found sand not fine enough, so lightly sand down with green emery sponge 180- 200 grade?? 
& give 2 coats of acrylic, looks better, but still wet when took pic, see what the morning brings then out with the colours

First colour applied, a slighty diluted acrylic, burnt sienna by Royal & Langnickel
dabbed on with a stiff brush & wiped on with a very fine weave cotton cloth

This is the stone work that I used as a reference, I think its called pink granite, red tones are accentuated in different lighting conditions,

I want to slightly empasise the red aspect a bit, but not 'spot' red as here

next tone down the white a bit, using a coarse cloth well dipped in water
( after allowing paint to dry 12 hours in a dry warm 22C atmosphere)

Then apply carefully some light gray  in the mortar lines to cover any white & red that strayed

Now I am not trying to copy the colouring on the school wall,
 but standing back a bit, this is still too red, so I think I will go for an application of light gray in the same way as I did the ivory, which came out in a way that surprised me, in its random speckliness

Gray added at 50- 50 water - acrylic

still looks too red to me & I think needs variety in the colouring
too many stones the same
plus it could do with a black/ brown  wash
