The scene is compact, measuring only 12”w, 10”d, and 10”h, making it possible to display nearly anywhere. The scene could be Spanish, Southwestern, French, Tuscan, or any other scenario you imagine. The emphasis here is on exteriors; there will be no "interior" per se, except for lighting giving a glow to the windows, and a small bit seen through the arch of the restaurant. Over three very long days, we will create the two walls.
We'll age and weather the timbers above the door and window of the fore wall with all their bumps, indentations, brick/stonework, and age them delicately using different finishes and coatings. Then we will create windows, pane by decrepit pane, with real glass for all openings. We will build an ornate door with a glass inset, age/weather it, and rust the metal doorknob. All of these surfaces will be aged and distressed using different techniques. The walls will be scuffed, marked, faded, chipping, and aged.
We'll create the awning, suggested signs/lettering, exterior lights (made from paper) and window shudders for the back wall. We will create a stone/cobble street surface between the two main walls, create roof tiles, and review ideas for a limited "interior" scene within the arch of the restaurant.
Then we will install lighting (LED, either battery or wired, your choice). We will review concepts for additional exterior stone/brick touches on the exterior foreground. Finally, we will touch on vegetation/plants/foliage ideas for your installation later, using some ingredients you may not have thought of using.
Price is $800. As of January 2016, there are two spots left and the class size is small.
