I made my wizards room box a couple of years ago on a weekend course run by a lovely lady called Sue Simpson. She designed it herself so all the credit for the great layout and features go to her. (check out her webshots page here with more examples of her amazing work http://community.webshots.com/user/suedsimpson)
It is made using paperclay, a medium I wanted to know how to use having seen Rik Pierces breath taking work and also Sues (who was taught by Rik), so she recommended I do the course which I loved.
Here is the finished room box.
It has lots of great features...the window on the left has a moon in it and the one on the right has a tree with an owl in it. Sue cast the fireplace and windows from resin and we were taught how to lead the acetate and how to paint the frames so they look like old stone.
If you look carefully you can see an owl perched in the tree outside. The whole box is lit, something else she taught us, we even made the light fittings ourselves
Here are some more pictures of the box when it is lit.
You are probably wondering why when I made this 2 years ago it is not finished yet. I agree it is a little empty but the truth is I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my minis and while I have a box full of little bits to go inside I am still looking for the perfect table. I know what it should look like in my head, I just have to find it.....or make it! Then I can cover it in all sorts of wizardy stuff.
I hope you liked seeing my wizards room box. If you have any questions about it please feel free to ask.
