My first hirst arts project

Recommended Posts

SPLENDID! My big hang up with Hirsch is they tend to be stiff, lacking the fluid lines, & interesting angles I can get with foam. Your little ruin has some very nice lines to it. The arches look particularly interesting. It's one of the best H.A. pieces I've seen thus far. VERY NICELY DONE!

Nicely done! ::): Definitely one of the better HA pieces I've seen, newbie or not! I particularly like the moss you put in, it makes it feel so much more real without overwhelming the structure.

I think you have aced the exam. (First Project!?) Your build looks more like real masonry than most Hirst Arts builds. Some questions:

 

Did you make the walls two bricks thick?

Is the base 12x12 inches or 16x16?

How did you get the filled arch on the back wall to project outward?

Is there fill material on the inside?

Thanks for response!
 

wall is made with one hirst brick thick (but one hirst brick is two fieldstones thick)

base is 8x8, pasticard with lot of pva glue with sand and a little bit of cheapest miliput

 

this arch on wall is made by cutting the same arch as in entrance into two pieces. i glued it to a normal wall and put some loose bricks above.

 

there is no fill material inside, only fieldstone floor on the base.

This is an excellent Hirst Arts ruin and I can only second what other people said: It looks very organic and natural, with interesting lines. It looks like it is built stone by stone, which is sometimes lost with the strict symmetry of Hirst Arts (naturally a requirement for perfect fit). I would suggest to add a bit of dirt to the upper floor, just in the corners where it would collect. Just use some fine sand or powdered pigment and fixate. Lastly I think it always pays off to add some "life". What about a bird's nest on the window sill on the second floor? You could put some eggs in and add a small bird close to it. Alternatively a lizard clmibing the walls may be an idea (I recommend the Busch Kleintierset for such detailing).
