The larger double sided Corinthian 7 inch Column, was moulded in the larger Lego Box,and the cheap odd side already shown was a perfect success, costing 5 Pence in Plaster of Paris and it worked a treat. This mould cost £7.00 and a few pence to make.


Image

I certainly lucked in obtaining these ornate columns from New York State.Remnants of a long ago wedding cake.

:read: "These are building props for story telling."
:sst: " bb`s odyssey!"
:cowboy: " It is all Greek ta me Pards."

Image

:mrgreen: " One has to laugh because it is so simple to do."____ :eh: " Eh?"

:sst: "let`s follow along the yellow lego brick road, shall we?"
:cowboy: " Well this ain`t Kansas,that`s for certain. Said the Cowboy,who always sleeps in his boots.
:mrgreen: " Yes,For fear of gagging everyone."

Image

A couple of rare Asterix figures were double sided moulded with rubber left over. Nothing goes to waste. These will look out of windows to give an extra flavour of detail,on another project.
:sst: "well they have such happy smiling faces."

Image

The Sun shines through the workplace window.

Image

I sure like this part of my hobby.


Image

Well it is not Nelson, but Remco,will recognise the figure on top.

That`s it guys another column is finished,and so another ending is placed firmly here.

However Coming Soon the `KHUFU COLUMN ' 19 cm in ht.

:cowboy: "That will be awesome Pards!" :-D
:sst:" it scared me", said the little button.
:mrgreen: " It didn`t me, I was standing behind the little button."

:coffee: I hope to see you then. BB

Temple of Medinat- Habu in 2003


Image

Two stood here.

Image

Down both sides leading to this entrance a further nine faced each other.

Image

Columns of Ramesses III
:sst: " does bb,model the whole statue then smash them up like in the picture?"
:mrgreen: " If he can piece together what they looked like. Yes!"
:read: " Well he does know 100% what the Ramesses iii columns looked like."

Image

Image

:coffee: " Well the jig saw is all there for the jigging to take place."

The ornate double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt , and the Goddess either side of his feet,marks the iii Ramesses, out for certain.

They certainly got whacked over the years,and especially now too. BB

Here my silicon mould is supported by what i term a rough plaster cradle designed to keep it level and quite sound as the Plaster of Paris is poured in . The Silicon & Soap method mould is thin enough to flip away from the edges and release the full figure casting. Being rubber it reforms its shape. This method meant no three part mould was necessary. One part for the column ,and two parts for the full figure and without the aid of a moulding box the Pattern was covered over with 100 % silicon,and pressed into place by hand. No gloves or powder of any kind was needed. The 19 cm column cost £3.00 to make. This is the first time that I formulated this soap method, using my rough and ready cradle. :-D

Image

Upon removal the near perfect entire figure was smashed up!
:mrgreen: " Crazy!"

Ancient Egyptian Ruins Ramesses iii, It is a proven fact this Ramesses had his throat cut wide enough and deep enough to have proven fatal.

:sst: " so he was snuffed out!"
:coffee: " He sure was little Button." BB

As the evening shadows fall upon my work table,this casting up work meets an ending.
Scenes within story book settings are now made possible.

Image

The BRITAINS Toy figure of 54mm, sets the perfect scale as head height is slightly under the knee of these columns.

:sst: "there`s lots of shadowy columns tall and most scary , standing unseen."
:mrgreen: " Yah! Bring e`m on!"
:cowboy: " If`en they start a moving,I`ll blast e`m ta pieces!"
:sst: " o there`s no need to do that,bb is battering them to pieces anyway."
:mrgreen: " And a fine job of Rubble-ing he`s making of it too."
:coffee: "One must have a before and after picture,like this tea cup it was once full.
I`m off to fetch another from the shiny teapot with its steam filled smiling face." BB

Well not that busy really Peter,but I do have enough columns finished for several photoshoot displays within my fantasy story book themes. An army of eight hundred plus cast up for later smiles of serious fun lay in boxes.Complete Egyptian Columns all finished too.
All that is now required is the colour-wash dip in my own muddy mix of acrylics, and all is completely coloured and sealed tight. This sealing tight means that they can be handled like any ceramic tile can without chalky dust getting upon hands fingers or anywhere they are placed. It seems like magic,and the wash takes a second to do in way of fizzy dipping.
:mrgreen: "I just love the sound of that fizzing!"

Image

Yes a few Asterix lady figures were made the simple mould shown here on
The Rubber Mould,and the successful end result. On Half Way House ,is my method of plaster topped thatching made many years ago.
Really nice to see you on the Forum again Peter.Thanks for commenting a rare thing indeed these days. :-D BB
