The paint affect is created by using matt black Calligraphy ink mixed into IPA and brushed on. The outside of the hut is clad in wooden drink stir sticks.

I've used those stirers on some of my rolling stock builds. They are useful things. This coach has a lot of them along with lollypop sticks, matchsticks and a few bits of other wood.
