Here are some images of the scale model, and the full size set.

Blunderbus week four

Today I started painting the two poly carved donkeys, for Pinocchio, and finished painting the tortoise.

Insect play "the Pile" continued..

Today I added more to the beetle's "Pile", eventually there will be layers of open weave hessian, more raffia, string, props, e.g books and coins, layers of hand painted and sprayed paint.

Blunderbus week two

This week I started work on painting the Pinocchio set. It consists of a wooden shed that revolves and turns into many locations including the workshop at the beginning. The set pieces were all primed with white before i started the painting.

We also started to develop about the design for the new show 'Dragon's daughter' Dean and I did some visual research at home to get inspiration for the shape of the hill layers and castle. We carved a simple 1:10 scale model out of polystyrene to help us work out the shape and size of each section, then we scaled this up and drew it out on the floor, so the rest of the team could transfer these shapes onto wood and begin the build.

Blunderbus week one

I started back at Blunderbus last week, the first task was to complete the finishing paint touches to some of the rainbow fish characters.
