Started work on another project. The inspiration here was Roslin Chapel (the one they used in the Davinci Code) I wanted to create a partially ruined tomb with the Sarcophagus lids flush with the floor. I also wanted to use HirstArts Blocks. I have had the molds laying around for a while, but have never really built anything large with them.

I used the template from HirstArts Church plans as a loose template.

The statues will be weathered bronze.

The floor will be simple 1/4" tiles with a rose pattern that I achived by using a craft bead pressed into exposed foam.

The front looked a little plain, so I added a decoration take from a cast of a cross tomb stone, and added a door.

Insipired by our local HirstArts quru I decided to add hinges to the door.

For the sarcophagus tops, I used an old Hero Quest model, and made a mold out of it using silcone putty. It came out pretty good.

Here you can see two casts placed into rough position

The inside walls seemed a little plain, so I spackeled over the bricks to create a plastered look. I then decided that it would look cool with some hanging tapestries on the door side, prob be a coat of arms or something similar. Here you can see the tapestry hooks I made using small squares of plastic card, and bent wire.

With the tapestries hanging. These were made with toothpicks, craft beads, and the foil from a wine bottle. I may tatter them a bit more what do you think?

Next, I decided to add some windows. I originally was just going to create the tracery from scratch, but this was much eaiser. The windows are acrylic I purchased from A&K Studios. This is also where I purchased a very nice tombstone mold. Fast and friend service. And a very quality product. A&K Studios They have some other pretty cool stuff for use with Hirst Arts, worth a look.

Windows loose fit into the tomb.

I am also considering adding a companion piece of a grave yard that will be off to the side of the tomb. Here are some cast tombstones from the mold I got from A&K Studios

Well that is it for now... more updates to come.

Thanks for the comments, always encouraging. I plan to have this painted in the next few days. Hopefully I can do it justice.

Very nice! In this construction the hirst arts pieces look fitting for a change (I usually dislike the "lego look").

This tomb is turning out to be quite a masterpiece! All the small details really bring the piece to life... The statues, shape of the door, tapestries, I could go on and on... I like it (in particular the hinges on the door Ruined Tomb Icon_biggrin )!

Thanks for the comments guys, it makes the effort of posting worthwhile. Ruined Tomb Icon_biggrin

I started work on the door statutes, in retrospec I could have just painted them stone, but these guys just had a more bronze look to me.

A WIP shot of the painted tile floor, I am fairly pleased with the design. I will be playing on them a bit on the tapestries, which I think will be two coats of arms, as it only seems appropriate for the dead guys laying here.

Ruined Tomb Medium

Got a base coat and the first wash on the building. Here are a few shots with things loose fit into place to give an idea of what the finished is roughly going to look like.

I am thinking of putting the sarcophagus's on small raised bases, nothing crazy just raising them off the floor a bit. I think it would look a little be better?

Something like this. Any thoughts?

I like the idea of having the lids raised off the floor (LOVELY floor BTW)...while some sarcophagi lid are flush with the floor in reality, these look not-quite-flush enough. The Project is coming along BEAUTIFULLY! Ruined Tomb 544694

I decided to go ahead and raise the tids off the floor. I created a base from balsa, and used card cut with pinking shears to make a decorative edge.

That REALLY is a FINE piece. The floor is SPECTACULAR & the standards add just the right touch of color. The pinking sheared trim was a clever & effective touch. VERY WELL DONE! Ruined Tomb 544694

Great work!! I love all the little details and this is making me want to look into Hirst's collection of molds in order to possibly speed along some of the project ideas I have...

Keep up the good work!!


PS what did you use to hinge the door??
