These four panels of cobblestone
streets were created using the Hirst Arts Cobblestone
Mold number two ten
This one with the statue on top
uh... with this fountain
is essentially the oldest one,
I created it about five or six years ago
and I created it to be modular
so i could take out parts
and rearrange them. Initially I based it on newspaper.
On the base i had
uh... some kind of newspaper.
Put them all together, tried to make it as square as possible. Then more recently, to match
the other ones, I put it on these For Sale signs which you can get from Wal-Mart
for about a dollar fifty.
are the different pieces that come off of this particular one. So on this
I did glue
uh... at least two wide here
and this piece should come out.
It's a little bit stuck
but essentially here's the modular area where I can
move pieces around.
I actually want to update
to swapping out
this part, the fountain, which I've never done the last five years, I'd like to
have four regular just regular pieces.
The fountain can be a little distracting.
I also want to fix little defects.
that I've noticed. For example, this area
has not been dry brushed
my pale gray color yet.
And then it's a little distracting to have these white borders.
So today I'm gonna be
fixing those up and also explaining a little bit more
I've created these sections and the custom mold
I made to do it.
Here's the mold you buy, this is #210
I've cast from it a whole bunch.
this one here, the original, is only cast from this.
And uh... it's a great mold
definitely one of the ones i would
highly suggest you get from Hirst Arts.
Here I'm just showing some of the little defects that I wanna fix
these floor tiles that I created.
So here's there's an absence of plaster so there's a little depression.
here I've filled in this
depression with some glue
and static grass.
And then, if we just pan over,
you can see where there's some white
from however I've glued them together or NOT glued them
There's just an empty area here, so I want to fill this so it's less noticeable
in the videos or however I use these for pictures of them.
As i mentioned i want to hit the edges
with some paint
so that's not so noticeable
and there is a warning to
and here for example this would be
one instance when the weather
uh... actually use
for the pains
Apple Barrel Pewter Gray
and then try brushed
of country gray so i don't use a black base coat
this is actually something black wash
animated i've paid over it
i think these ones look more organic
and i just wanna replicate that on this board
you this one over here and has a reset
i want to take this action now
and just replace it with
some normal sections
When you buy the Cobblestone Mold
you get a two by two section which is very useful for filling in large areas.
You get two of these
one-by-one sections. You get the corner piece
to to buy one
uh... barry st it is number two one one
with the street edge so if there's only these pieces besides the corner
to actually make something straight
now you have to cast as a whole bunch of times
to go ahead in me
for went well essentially politicians
street section as i've done
this is what you end up with and what i did because i would take so long is
several months ago actually
did this me my own
it's was so much a contemptible making
so i i artists include
through these together
have been sitting on my legal malt
and resorts judge into all of this
and uh... i created
this which is
mine production of
the city streets sections
so he'd have to sense claim a small that i've done the next three person actually
area aforesaid into them perfectly
and create this small
you know mike into sunday the defects later
the house since we worked
units debris speed things up
as an example of something i can do with my custom
gold for example
uh... and noticed this so i can just take them
his using street side
which is actually but they can use this method
so do it
straight pieces in here i think i'm in a group
these two together these two together leave these cases
i won't have to have this any more pictures of my selection
so this is an example of mine
modular design and of course with her start stuff you can do practically
you want to do
so here is apple barrel pewter gray
war might be is
somewhat sublease is gonna
now under code of black
more white for that matter in some pain dripped onto the plaster
unity cast with white tential plaster
of course fight if i actually had
the great tough stoner
other colors of plaster
some things would have to be so nice
syria but white is speak colored order in the past
i don't think there's any advantage to white
that's not true
what i'm doing here
has maybe fiber
six minutes later just it all that
of these four sections
removing the pain
some little work still
nephew if united regressions
what hoping what to do you
just regression unjustly also straining
on these forms
but i think that result
it's pretty nice
when using here's country great
so this is what i use for a correction
my fortress wall sections
same basic scheme
the fortress was actually a
x four sections don't
i will be
to add some more
interrogation interest as Mike from Terranscapes would say
hiking in some colors i did it couple
black or dark washes
and then i go over them try brush with ninety different shades of gray so only
was new recesses really remains
and goes on my city streets from her starts
using more retreating
