STONE SENTINELS

 Now doing arts and crafts finger nails get clogged up with gunge so please bear that in mind.

                                                             With that explained
                                                          
                                                            LETS MAKE A START
                               I bought the Lego type sweet and the Chocolate  moulds with this in mind.



                       I  cast them up in Plaster of Paris and colour wash dipped them.


                            A tiny bit of Silicone did the trick of sticking each piece into place.











Each column fitted into my wall will have a stone Sentinel stationed on watch at the top,
and beneath his feet a water overflow channel will be fitted.



                                                   A quirky cheap as chips fun time item.


The picture above is a mock up but it shows the position this stone fellow will stand in,
and it will fill the space between the castellations.
I am always looking about for things that I can use for other purposes,and the old saying,
" Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained ", comes readily to mind.

So guys I hope you like this project?_________There will certainly be many, many more.

                                                        It seems interesting.

                                               Still lots to do before these two move in.
                                    


                                                               UPDATE FOUR



                                             The hobby blitz working week went well.



                                           The last course will be tied in the middle.


Then glued into the place shown above.


                              Just two more section pieces to stick into place to finish these off.

                             The Sentinels are viewing the up and coming Asterix Village.
