BB`s CASTLE PARTS




I  had  quite  a lazy  day  getting over a Cold, but I managed to piece this musical photo-shoot together. It took all afternoon  but  what the heck!  It  was fun.  Enjoy.  BB


                                           EXTRA  SMALLER  MOULDING  FUN


                                           It will all help make  the finale picture.



          Tiny 28mm  Bretin  Shields from the 1990`s I used as patterns in the rubber mould.


            Castings ain`t that great but here are some before trimming the edges took place.



 Stone shields for the castle walls. I have made other shield pattern moulds  and castings by the hundreds which I can stick in place after construction of the walls near completion. Once dipped in colourwash my own mix the thin detail should look much better than it does here.

Thanks for your visit. Feel free to comment. BB

A RETURN 3




I rearranged the two moulds and set to and finished the job in hand with my mixture of rubber.





The blu tac keeps the moulding boxes in place while I man handle the stuff into place.



My Tutorial,` The Rubber Mould', along with many others can be viewed freely without charge on Benno`s Figure Forum, Sub Forum Tutorials.. There are three pages missing, __well blanked out because of the Freepost Wars of 2016-2018, however one can skip past those to see my other rough and tumble out of moulds stuff.   BB

RETURNING PART 2




                                   The Stone Masons Rock Chipping


My chippings on my work table.
 It was here after this picture was taken that I had to trim down the castings with a craft knife.


I`ve added some  shade to this picture to aid the viewer.  Upon the table Statues, Armoured Horse Heads and Lion Heads for a Draw- Bridge lay amongst the Windows. In the background the first Monastic  buildings are taking shape. Walls of buildings and doors lay upon the radiator.

                                                  Thanks for your visit.  BB

RETURNING










A big warm welcome here I hope you enjoy your visit.



My return  shows my latest hobby style work from Pattern, Mould and Castings....




… and will be just a small glimmer of what is to come.  A  Castle!


LEGO  BRICK   MOULDING  BOX



THE FIRST TOWER CAST


THE CASTELATION  TOP  FOR  THE CASTLE  TOWER  STILL  IN THE  RUBBER  MOULD


THE MOULDING BOX  SURROUNDING  THE 28MM  SCALE  CASTLE  TOWER

I  use Lego bricks for my moulding boxes and it breaks down or indeed climbs to greater hieights if needs dictate or likewise down to tiny four brick boxes for tiny stuff I need to make.



My first lean to castle building.


                          Handmade  Medieval Windows


Here I use a casting as a quality control test area as I have to get the curve cut into the window castings just right to fit snug tight to the curve of each tower. This is a fantasy project where I want to portray a castle that has undergone changes throughout its long existence so  windows were installed where before there had been none but arrow slits to ward off those threatening the  fortress  with arrow or the best well sited crossbow bolt. This I do know Kings have fought hard to defend or capture this castle for its story`s have long sat within my head of clash of arms imagination.


                 Other updates I`ll add onto my other video`s as the castle evolves.

                                           Thank you for your visit.BB
