PostSubject: Table WIP   Sun 27 Jan 2008 - 15:53

Well after seeing toms table it got me all inspired to start my own. mines going to be made up of 4 2ft square pieces. so when i get that size sytofoam i will begin it properly. But for now i decided i would get a 1st square piece to have a test run and see how it turns out.
so heres acouple of pics of what i have done.




Hope you like and C&C always welcome Smile

That's very nice foot.

I like it a lot. The different rock sizes fit together nicely.

What kind of foam did you use?

Holy Crap!

That is great!

How long did it take you?

Did you use a template?

Thanks Foot.

I'm on the verge of doing this exact same thing (4 2x2 boards) I'm just not satisfied with any of the foam I've found. Tom says in Europe he bought "Styradour," and he said by pressing on it with a pen, you can make grooves. Is this what you did?

I'm in the states, and can only find "blue foam" which has a papery material on each side that just tears...

I'm trying to find foam like yours. Any other ideas/tips?

Thanks,

thanks da bank. no templates were used, took me awhile took me about an hour or two i think.

@ashton
indeed thats what i did, but i used a blunt pencil witch sort of works the same. I sorta rang up afew hardware places first but they dident have any but could order it for me, so i just went to an art shop and found it there. im still trying to find better stuff, i sorta want the smooth stuff like Toms. so i have also been asking around for styadour.
Not sure about where else you could find some, would just be best to keep looking around.
Some more ideas for my board was to have a river thru it, with some bridges and bits like that.

Cool thnx for the info Foot.

Eventually, I'm going to make a table similar to this one:

http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page260.html

I freaking love how that is set up. It makes a great system to create elevation... although re-evaluating it now... it may be totally useless... but we'll see

oh yeah that table is great. when i first saw that it made me want to make a table, but casting all the hirst arts blocks was going to take to long.
I just thought of another place you could try find stryrofoam stuff is packaging companys the guy at the art shop told me have a look/ask there.

Right. Actually, i was just talking about how the table is made. With hollow spots below so you can do a river/sewer and, it's modular.

peace,

oh right i get yah, sounds like that would be a good idea.

Alrighty i've been playing around with painting this test bit for my board. I decided it was a job for my air bursh. it came out alright i think, the pics dont really show it that well but here they are..




I still have to give it a drybursh so it stands out abit more

Very nice! You managed to get a homogenous colour (the miracle or airbrushing I suppose).

Maybe you can do the shading with the airbrush too. Because I find that "drybrushing" a large surface with a 7cm broad brush - like I did - is a pain in the ass.

I am very curious how it turns out (and have always envied airbrush owners Smile

thanks tom. i can see how dry brushing the whole thing would be a pain, when i gave that one piece i drybrushed took longer than i thought it would, but it ldoes make it look better.
Well i still have to find some more bits for the rest of the board now and then i will be updating more. Btw anyone see the secret little skull in there somewhere? Wink

Haha, You don't count small words like "of" in an acronym. It's FAT. Laughing

Let us know how it goes. I'm very interested to see how it comes out, FAT. Wink

This is awesome. Good job mate.

Its true. Drubrushing large sections (i.e. my board) is a serious pain in the ass. Takes a long time to get it all looking the same over the whole table. I gave up eventually. I'm thinking about changing mine's colour from brown to grey if I have enough time (and if i've forgotten how annoying it was to drybrush last time) before Uni starts back.

Cheers ~ Steve
