    Hola guys!

    Here is a 54mm figure I sculpted for VLS while back. I decided to add a small setting to place the guy in. The wall started out as a piece of plasticard, which was covered in Aves Apoxie Sculpt to which some Vallejo Military Green and Black was added while mixing. I really like this green color, it is easy to see the details. The putty was left to cure, then sanded smooth and the 'boards' were drawn out with a lead pencil. The lines were traced with an X-Acto knife to score the putty and create individual boards. Once I was happy with the boards some 80 Grit sand paper was used to create the wood textures.

    The boards for the sign was made the exact same way as wall, just popped them off the plasticard after they were scribed so both side would get wood texture. The frame was made from copper wire, the horse show was shaped, then sanded flat with a sanding stick. The nippers were also bent in shape, then I hammered it a little with the back of the xacto handle to flatten out in the mittle. The nipper cutters were filed to shape with a file.
