|Date Added:||August 22, 2011|
|Base Figure:||Foamboard, clay, wood + PVC figures|
The house of Asterix, the Gaulish warrior, star of graphic novels, cartoons, movies, and his own theme park. Made as a backdrop to the PVC characters. (Not cheap. $8 apiece from a company in Canada.) Started with three layers of foamboard with cutouts so the photocopied and pasted interior shows through the windows. Glued on the balsa wood frame, distressed, and stained. Made the stones from air-dry clay, hand-fit nice and tight, but they shrank. Filled the gaps with Concrete Patch from Home Depot. Painted the stones, made the door, and laid on branches evened up with fat toothpicks. Made a bench for the window seat. Took forever. The wife's comment? "It's lovely, but shouldn't there be a light inside?" The figures are 2.75 inches, the house 11 inches. Next up: Cacofonix's treehouse next door.
