Autumn Castle 1 by bgerr Autumn Castle 1 by bgerr
made for the October Artisan Crafts contest by #CRArtisanCrafts maytel.deviantart.com/journal/…

I found a nice candlestick in a thrifth store some time ago and planned to stick a pringles can on it to make a base for a castle. But I never found the inspiration and left them lying in a drawer. Then I saw the CRArtisanCrafts autumn colours challenge and found my inspiration and got to work. Finished just in time :-)

May I ask how long these usually take you? o-o your work is amazing.

It depends on the size of the work and the amount of detail you put in. This piece about 20 hours I think. The big lamp was a lot of work - that took about 80 hours.

Wow, really? It's just so detailed. e-e Gaaah. May I ask how much of this is painted?

:iconbgerr:
bgerr Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Sure! All of it is made of white air drying clay so all of it is painted. I think the painting took up almost a quarter of the time actually.

Oh wow, I think that's similar to my timeline. 10% planning & measuring + 5% prototyping + 10% cutting base pieces + 50% detailing +25% painting=finished piece

Beautiful. But wouldn't tower be more appropriate than castle?

Thank you! As a base I used a pringles can stuck on a candlestick and I covered that with a kind of paperclay. Once finished I painted the whole thing with acrylics, the moss I covered with a mossy powder and I decorated the whole thing with a bit of glittetglue.

That is pretty resourceful! :D The texture of the stone and wood and all looks great!

Thank you! :D

I must admit that the texturing is actually quite easy: the stones texture I made with a texture sheet (you press the clay onto the sheet and hey presto: stones!)
