Pirate Sloop 
Next, I washed the deck to soak out all the planking and hide any chinks of balsa that were showing through. I then drybrushed three layers of Foundry Buff Leather with a final light dusting of Foundry Boneyard Light to finish it off. It's not quite right but it'll do.
Next I'll paint the masts to add a little colour, probably using Foundry Base Sand or similar, although I'm not sure exactly what. I thought about painting some strakes along the upper hull to make it look less monotone but I'm not sure this would work and might make it look a bit out of character for a glorified fishing boat!
