Here we go again with Playmobil this time used to make two side Patterns in rubber.
The Lego Boxes ensures each will be the same size round each edge. blu tac helps keep it in place.
Very simple to press rubber into the moulding boxes giving me the means to do good ornate walls.
Each level Pattern will be removed turned over facing side up then the outside edge of each casting will be formed by Lego Bricks raised up above the pattern. Filled with Plaster of Paris,and I will need 10 off each. My Egyptian stash is very cheaply stacking up.:-D BB

Silicone was pushed in filling the boxes. Cost £2.75 UK Stirling.


Image

Each one was trimmed around the edges with scissors.

The Lego Bricks were built up to one brick above the patterns.

Then Cast Up! :-D BB

This is one of my favourate Napoleonic pictures.

Colourful walls painted by my good self I would like to try and paint at a later stage upon my roadway into my slice of the ancient side of my hobby. Above a hunting scene is the type and style I need to tackle in a most cunning way and one that would involve not one paint brush being dipped into paint at all.

To realise the full extent is a something somewhere yet to come that might well explain it. BB
