    Prosit Nan, great work as usual, how i wish summer could be skipped for at least just one year, how i detest it!!. Roll on those nice cold, rainy if possible, Sunday afternoons. A model, hot coffee and the sound of the rain outside. Whoooopie!!

    lighthouse

    Post  in nannu pec on Mon Sep 24, 2012 3:02 pm

    here's with what I started ....a pill container....again gluing on the scribed brickwork was quite a problem because of the material...problem solved ...covered it with masking tape so superglue adhered easily to the structure....

    to get the desired effect...which cannot be seen in these pics...I used clear plastic tubing for the lantern and poured molten wax in it...to achieve an opaque effect
