I used styrofoam to build up the majority of the rough shape. I then used sculptamould to fill in areas and give it more of an organic shape. Once all of the shaping was done including the sculpted details I covered the whole model in modge podge to give something for the glue and paint to stick to.
I made a Minature model of a section of Bag end for my final major project for the 2nd year of my university course.
Peter Jacksons film adaptation of The Lord of the rings is what inspired me to do Prop making, so it's nice to finally make something from the films!
The other areas such as the gate and door way is a mixuture of milliput sculpting and the use of match sticks among other pieces of scrap wood.
I used a static grass applicator to apply the grass and went in afterwards and airbrushed it to the correct colours. the other foliage aspects are a selection of homemade and bought.
