After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.

 

So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.

Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.

 

With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

Here's the right wing with a wrought-iron basecoat.  The rest of the model is coated except the left wing.

I like using the wrought-iron as a basecoat for my golems because it makes the cracks and gaps look like something is underneath the stone or metal, animating the construct.

Besides, it will definitely look cool in the mask's mouth and eyes as well as all the little skulls.

Nice work on the photo lighting as well. Kinda gives off that "Transylvania-music" vibe.

 

 

Thank you.

 

I just set him on my magnifying lamp with the light on to provide the light from below.  There is a regular lamp to my left and the TV to my right providing the cyan light.

 

The picture is taken with my Samsung Note 20 and I edit it for color correction, crop and sharpness right on there as well.

 

In the very distant background is my steam engine print and the Union Pacific engine and car display.  The print is from the Scranton Steam Engine Museum.

For any who might be interested, here's the print and model train engine that has been the background of my pics for this mini.

The silver and red engine in behind the Union Pacific is the Silver Streak from the movie of the same name.

 

The print and the model railroad display were literally the first thing I hung up when we moved here.

Okay, I stuck with a skull. I picked out one with it broken already and gouged out the cavity a bit more.  I also sanded the back of it down so it sat properly on this wing.

Then while looking at other skull options I came across a shield from the Bones IV KS.  It matched the theme so I added it as a shoulder piece on the right shoulder.

Now it's fully basecoated.  I noticed some missed spots while working on the additions.  Next up, picking out some differing stone colors and working on placement.

 

Stay Tuned and Enjoy.  Please Stay Safe.
