Some times when you do something you just hit the zone and let the feeling guide you. Today was my day. The flu passed and when I started to work on the well I was hit by a crystal clear vision of the finished product. Well, not the actual finished version, just the thought and certainty of something very nice looking. Hard to explain, let the pictures talk.
I glued some foam on top of the pilars to create a hat for the well.
Then I cut four different sized circles from foamboard, glued those together and on top of the hat.
I used some wall spackle to cover some holes and protect the edges of the board and foam.
Then I used poor man´s etched brass, peelable stickers, to give the hat some texture.
I also glued some Hirts Arts bits to the side of the well.
Because this is a well I wanted something more to really make it to look like one. I have made some detailed work before but this time I really managed to make something quite good looking.
I started by cutting some circles from plasticard and drilled some holes in those.
Then I cut little bit bigger circles and cut those in half.
Little bit drawing, some holes and more cutting.
Then I glued those on each side of the smaller circle and glued the whole thing to the under side of the well´s hat, a winch!!
Another Hirts Arts object and some thin wire to make a bucket. I also made a hook from short piece of rope and some thin metal wire.
Then it was just a matter of assembly.
Although I didn´t plan this at all but just followed my guts, I felt that it still needed something to fullfill my initial vision. So I took a button and some cartboard.
I used the edge of tape to make some arched decoratives.
Again, some assembly.
Holy sh*t, I LIKE!!!!
