​⚠️​Construction Zone​⚠️


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the  ⚠️Construction Zone⚠️

 

We know you're all talented digital artists, but how are your fabrication skills?

 

This is a section of the forum where you can show off things you've built, designed or constructed in the physical world. I was inspired to create this forum by BoltBait's fabulous pinball machine: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/6291-the-sanctuary/?do=findComment&comment=546163

 

GUIDELINES FOR THIS FORUM:

 

  1. Don't post step-by-step guides. There just isn't space, and there are better places to post that sort of stuff on the internet.
  2. Post no more than a few photos/plans. Posting 1000 photos of your new house extension is going to get it removed. You are welcome to post a link to a photo gallery on an external hosting site.
  3. One post per project.

I've been doing some modelling. No, no. making models, not catwalks (although I think I'm good looking enough to make millions ?)

 

Here's the first one I've finished.

 

P1010349.jpg

 

It stands about 200mm tall (28mm scale for all you RPG geeks out there). It is entirely constructed out of little plaster bricks I make from molds purchased from Hirst Arts.

 

The painting is my own. Yes I've improved since then.

Thanks! I sewed the whole thing by hand (including shoe covers to resemble soft boots), and did it without a pattern. I always knew that minor in History would count for something!

 

Now I just need to make a couple of updates to my garb, now that Ingrid Svipalsdottir is off the farm and cooking for the monastery. ;)

 

@Ego Eram Reputo, let me know if you want me to throw together a pattern. Todd likes the tunic so much, he’s interested in more!

I made a leather dice bag to hold all my die. It has this neat leather thong which secures the opening flap and also creates the teardrop shape when closed.

 

Holds dozens of die. I found the coffee colored d6 cheap on Aliexpress - they are my current favorite.

That is just beautiful @Ego Eram Reputo <3 you could patent it and make a million :)  It would also be great for small change as well.

 

(Nice soft looking blanket - my new cat would love that)

Thanks Pixey. It would make a neat coin purse. I find the shape strangely pleasing.

 

(The blanket is a favorite of our dogs)

Many thanks @welshblue.  Yes, I did have to sew in different directions.  I did it many years ago and still have about half a dozen of unfinished works on the go.  When I went through my needlepoint phase I had much better eye sight smileys-skelette-121507.gif

*stretches and cracks back* I'm still here and painting! Y'all can't get rid of me that easily!

 

Anyway...Todd's mom and dad decided they wanted to update their kitchen. They got a consultation with an interior decorator and everything, and then Mum said, "Wait...why don't we have Alyce do it?"

 

Didn't have to ask me twice! Since they both grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan, I fired up PDN and came up with several designs inspired by the lake and the culture around it. They ended up choosing one inspired by lighthouse windows.

 

Since I have a Spoonflower shop, I uploaded the design there and had them print the wallpaper. Et voila! Entirely PDN!

Where do you get Rabbit sized hay bales? From a rabbit sized hay baler!

Yup. MDF and a bit of pine trim. The "carry handle" is a slide which opens to allow the bale to be pushed through.

 

I run the strings by hand. They go along little grooves inside. It's a little fiddly however as it works so well I'm loath to change it. I've already baled around 60 bales with it & it didn't even break :)

 

Bales are about shoe box size. Next time I bale some hay I'll post some pics.

Here's one fresh from the baler...
