I run a sculpture studio at U of Toronto, and in my spare time i build things.... A student left her project past the throw out date, so ive converted it into hexagonal towers.... Here is the first, the second will be a mirror image

On top of wood and metal working, i also teach mould making.... One student left behind a bunch of casts of a samurai warrior.... Ive turned this one into a fallen statue

As i teach students how to make silicone moulds, i have access to silicone.... After i found a pack of beautiful barrels at a hobby store in Kamloops, i ventured to make moulds of them so i can cast my own copies

This looks really interesting and resourceful too! All those apparently missed opportunities turned into proper terrain pieces. Excellent stuff!

That piece looks awesome! It's got Dwarf written all over it to me. But yeah, very interesting shapes there. Good luck!

Wow, great job, of course i am looking forward to see it painted!Wink
And those barrels turned out great. ANd jap, it is fabtastic to have acces to silicone, makes it more easy to complete a gaming table with a lot of easy stuff in no time. Thumbs up!

This is the 2nd round of barrels (and decorative stones made from buttons).... I used a 2 part plastic resin this time.... They turned out much nicer

I guess practice does make perfect; the new batch of barrels look even better than the first. AND the decorative stones have definite uses/potential. GREAT STUFF!   thumbsup

The ruins look SPLENDID...somehow that seems like a contradiction in terms. Be that as it may, VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup
