I've got all of the furniture currently sitting in various states of completion. so here are the first few that I've completed so far.
so i began chopping up some 1.5mm plasticard to form the basis of the rack. carving wood grain in as i went along. one that was completed i then made some metal base plates to put around the bottom.
one thing here i struggled with, and always have. are those studs. HOW THE HELL!!!!! do the great scultpers manage to create all these fine detailed studs on figures? its beyond me! so what did i do? i drill some tiny holes, stuck in some paper clips and trimmed them off nice and short..it works but i want better in future.
next up i was onto the details.
cuffs. i created these with green stuff wrapped around a cotton bud tube. I smeared vaseline on the tube then rolled the green stuff around it. when it was about 50% cured i then cut it to size. when the greenstuff had fully dried i slid it off the tube, separated my cuts and then picked out the best looking cuffs from my cuts and sat them to one side for later.
next up i decided on rope to attach to those cuffs (it was a toss up over rope or chain)
to make the rope I just use some fuse wire and twist it together. for this rope i think i used 3 pieces at once. i glue each end to a old bit of sprue to work as a winder. then just twist away. it will begin to pull together and look like rope. easy right? try it. its very effective.
for the handles i used a offcut from a bbq skewer as the log and some green stuff to build up the handles and such.
i still wanted more though. so i tried my hand at hand sculpting a cobweb........stupid idea right? well there is the finished article.......cant say im fully happy with it. but i know im not a great sculptor. so for a first time attempt with no real techniques known how to create a good looking webbing..lets just say its not a total disaster. oh and that little black blob next to it? its a spider of course! :)
if you know where that spider is from ill coff up more details!
more to come soon
