Freshly Painted Siva Linga Stones

Here's a pic of this last batch of Siva Linga Stones with a fresh coat of paint. I've been working on these all day simultaneously. These six came out great. The seventh is still by my paint booth needing a touchup. As stated before, this batch will be available to order sometime soon this week.

Siva Linga Stones Back in Stock Soon

Got a few leftover castings. Here they are with their basecoats on, now painting as I type this. They'll be available again sometime this week. Stay tuned!

Mayan Themed Wall Relief W.I.P.

I've decided to work on one of my Mayan themed wall relief designs. I'm particularly fond of this one.

The basic shape is drawn onto a piece of styrofoam and carved. Later this rough carving will be layered with a clay-like air-drying modeling compound, refining the shapes as it's being applied. Once dry, it will be rotary tooled to add in the final intricate details. The final piece will measure roughly 8" x 12".

To be continued...

Workbench Makeover

I finally decided to clean up my messy workbench and gave it a little makeover. I had this carved foam brick wall with arched window forever and I got sick of looking at it sitting in the corner unfinished and unused. I took some time today to paint it and mount it on the back of my table top.

Eventually I might add some dungeon bars to the window to give it more character.

While many 18th-19th century illustrations such as these are under the public domain, these are specially reproduced here in an atmospheric and aged quality and with gritty color tones. These prints are a perfect addition to any "steampunk" or maritime collection and will look stunning in a suitable frame.
