Some times you don´t need a plan but you just trust you guts and the mental picture of the project which you have in your head. You just know that everything will fall to it´s place when the project continues. This was that kind of moment for me!
I didn’t have anything new for the well when I sat at my work chair. Still, something was boiling in my head. Everything just seemed calm and I had a feeling that this would turn out good. So I started working. First I cut and glued small foam boxes to cover the plastic support of the top of the well.
Then I started to build up the top. I cut four disc with different sizes and different thickness. I used plastic sheet, 0,5cm, and 0,3cm foamboard to do this. Then I glued these on top of each other so that the smaller disc was at the bottom. This was attached on to the top.
Some filler was used to cover the joints, protect the foamboard and also to give the well some texture.
I used poor man´s etched brass, stickers, to give the upper half some decorations. These work amazingly well!
Then some Hirst arts left overs on to the bottom half.
Because this is a well I figured out that it needed something more to really represent one. Of course!! Something that can be used to lift the water for the thirsty. This winch is scratch built and so the construction will be explained in the next Scratch build Terrain Details – article. I really, really like this!
Still the well didn’t feel right so I continued working. I cut two different sized cardboard circles and took an old button. Then I used the edge of the tape roll to draw some curved shapes on to the cardboard. I cut these out and glued everything on top of the well.
Now it was ready!
