Haunted Mansion Part 1 of a Billion
I visited Disney Land with my Nephews back in April? It was before Reapercon. It’s always been my favorite ride and it delighted me that my nephews (four and two) loved it too! They had us ride it three times. o_o Naturally, when it was announced that 2016 Reapercon will be horror themed, this was the first thing that popped into my head. I had the diorama planned out and the mini’s already in mind. Now….just to carry it out….
“All about that Base”: My weakest project at the moment. I don’t know a lot about materials and making things look the way I want them to, thus why I’m starting so early on this. the miniatures I’m not too worried about. I didn’t want it too centered, since I had plans for all of the space so I drew out a ‘blue print’.
I used some minis I already had to decide if I had enough space for the minis and anything else I had planned.
I then had to sculpt columns. I used Sculpey and for the life of me I could not get them to be perfectly..rectangular, but I shrugged it off as potential endearing imperfection and baked it anyways. Afterwards I hand sculpted cobblestone textures to it.
I then decided that I wanted to do a less complicated top to the columns and started building up. i baked two varying flat pieces and sculpted them together with modeling paste to get the shape I wanted. (I made this super complicated you see. @_@)
