Baba Yaga's monitor footed base

Recommended Posts

Having been cursed with wobble feet, Baba Yaga asked, no.. Begged me for a custom base!

But where will I find such a big base, I thought...

 

I dove in the metal scraps at work, and retrieved a nicely sized monitor foot / stand. And so, it begins...

Phase 1: cutting the extra's off: done

Phase 2: filling the center hole: done!

Phase 3: apply more wood filler and dry fit the legs: done!

 

Phase 4: sanding the base : done!

Now, time to dry and go on a holiday.

To be continued :)

Alot of spackle layers later, it looks like the hills are becoming what I'm looking for.

 

Adding a ladder to the front part as an extra support for tipping over, just in case. Just thinking how I can strengthen it, but I'll think of something :)

Found a fix to sturdy the ladder. 2 matchsticks affixed to the back of the ladder provides a nice sturdiness. Quite happy atm with itP_20191012_161314_vHDR_Auto.thumb.jpg.f15874a5d7d14b4121948a12ac2e6e0e.jpgP_20191012_163727_vHDR_Auto.thumb.jpg.4989c37163bedbc1eef599c9d243a8c2.jpgP_20191012_161327_vHDR_Auto.thumb.jpg.3e8d117a7407cde162180e9be058be5d.jpg

Base layer applied on the base.

Next steps are drybrushing base, applying greenery, possibly some wooden shrooms I found in the house, then attaching the ladder and the hut before going forward. Eager to continue!

Getting ready for the finishline! More paints on the hut, thinking only a wash needed to finish atm. Bottom part finished, ladder attached and feet glued down aswell. Green stuffed the parts where it didn't attach. Now to let it cure :) 

 

ps: first green stuff usage, yay!

Looks good!

 

Thanks! :) on these photo's you really can't see the 7 types of Wood paint used on the hut, but when the washes go over it and the photo gets the proper light it should have, it will be seen better I think =)

Very cool! I like the addition of the mushrooms, it gives off a fairytale vibe.

The different kinds of wood and the windows look great!

Ty! I can't wait to give this thing a proper photoshoot :D

 

The mushrooms reminded me of the witch in the Zelda SNES game, figured it would make a nice addition.

Take a look at pictures of real statues and buildings that have those and emulate that.

Some off whites with a touch of green.

Maybe put some birds on there as well to convey the message.
