the working lamp post

The functional light was made by Akulatraxas including the switch turn on or off the light. I used an antique stlyle paint for the lamp post. again I'm very satisfied how this came out

Making a miniature box... out of a bigger box :O

taking carbord from another box I created a mini version and tried to replicate damage by ripping the sides, painting the corners with dirty paint water and wrinkling the sides and the edges to achieve an authentic look.

the patform. Sometimes you have to figure things out

I found myself in a dilema. Usin a thin wood platform  meant I can't work on it with water based materials because it would bend  when in contact with water. And the only way I could make the concrete imitation was with water based gue. Lots of it. So the solution was to have the food foil between the wood and the paste to achieve the right shape for the concreete paste matching the shape of the wood platform. Once the paste was dry, the foil was removed and the two pieces stuck together with a little of fast acting glue :)

making trash bags for the streat scene :D

So a little plastic and using a lighter fire to seal the sides  is how the typical trash bag model is made. filled with various paper piecess and cotton.
The end effect was to my satisfaction :)
