In this episode we build the shipyard. East Coast Style | Essentially Wood | Shipyard at Foss Journal entry #2
In this episode, we talk to Mark Williams Joe Lemay. Mark is the founder of Imagine That Laser Art and a Canadian Artist. Joe is an expert in both local railroad history and was a huge influence in my modeling.
I met Ulrike Strauch (Ulee) in the usual way. I first saw some fantastic images of her work on Facebook, and simply sent her a message. What I found was a German custom builder, that is highly talented, and not afraid to try something new.
Ulee’s scenery work is well sought out, in Europe. And after this interview was completed, my friend has started creating Tree’s so realistically, that I feel we need to talk again sometime next year. She is so very talented, and I do hope you agree.
We love to make miniature terrain
What, Another low-cost craftsman kit? Yup, but this one is an interesting example of the cost of detail parts. While Jack em' up had less metal detail parts and was a wee bit larger, Bob's is smaller with more details parts.
I found a stem armature that looked like a tree. But was a wee bit too big to be anything other than a willow tree.
A week later I am working on the honey do list and find that hot chilly pepper roots look just like branches of a tree.
Some paint, craft glue, and various ground cover junk. And I do mean junk, a tree is born.
Ok, not everything I do ends up in failure. Sometimes I stick with it till it works. Other times I run away screaming NOOO!!! We also see what happens when you try and lock the ol' lady out of the room.
I was requested by a modeler to share everything I know about signs. After they watched me mask my Son's name on his tablet. He was going on a trip and I wanted to make sure if some kid stole it (he is autistic and is a target), that kid (i hope it would be a kid, really) would have to hide his thieving butt to remove said signage.
No I messed up on a technique I saw somebody "talk about" before. I wanted to make sure I knew how to do it. I failed, it was hilarious. But I also shared a number of valid technique y'all might like. So check them out.
