Some early work done on Harry Potter display base...

Hey all!

Well, I got a bit of work done on the stuff that will help make up the display base for the Harry Potter figures I have coming...

First up, I had to use a bit of green stuff to make The Sorting Hat, and to make a cloak to drape over the chair... it will be the Invisibility Cloak.

Next up I painted everything up and put it in place.  I did a quick rough of how things will look as they get going... give it a look!

Two painting notes... first, I don't know what color to paint the "shroud" of the lamp on the desk... any advice?

Second... the invisibility cloak is going to be a real, real tough one.  If anyone has any advice on how to paint it, I am ALL ears!

The frames (I ordered about 8 of them) and a few other pieces (a telescope, a spare chair, the fireplace and accessories, a few other bits) are on their way... I'll have more as I get it done!

I would suggest that you use a different name when discussing this range. We will all know what it really is about, but it will keep the heavy hand of the lawyers off of your back. The furniture looks interesting.

Ahh... interesting:) They are not being sculpted for sale or anything, so I figured it would be fine.

Okay; let's call it "The Wizardlings" then:)

Yeah, I think the furniture looks good so far... not sure how I will tackle the invisibility cloak; I think I have to wait until everything else is done before I can really tackle it with any detail. I am sure I won't do a great job:)
