First up is a lectern (in case you hadn't realised what it is), small fiddly and really annoying, I think I got more glue on my fingers than I did on the piece itself.
I'm sure you can work out what was made from what to get the end result and I'm also pretty sure you could buy a better looking model of the same sort of thing (probably as a dungeoneering accessory) in either resin or metal very cheaply too.

Well, this is my attempt at making a confessional and whilst not based on any in particular it does have feature from many different ones I've found on the interweb.
It has two 'compartments' the left-hand one for the penitent and the right hand one for the priest taking the confession. As far as I could work out the one seeking forgiveness kneels on a small 'step' whilst the priest is sat.
The confessional has an openable door (just because) with a window made from the usual car-mesh stuff, presumable it's to see if the priest is 'home'.
The divide between the two 'cells' also has a small window, as seen in many a film where the killer shoots or stabs the victim through.
The whole thing took a lot of time to make, mainly because I was waiting for the glue to dry before adding another bit.
I also found that I had to make the roof a little higher than I'd anticipated, hence the hollow box style of roof!

That's it for this week, one in which I've had to reflect upon how to take this project forward, as the more I think about it the more overwhelming it is becoming.
Thanks once more, for taking the time to visit and I hope you've found something of interest and welcome too, to my latest follower Luciano Bastos, who doesn't appear to have a blog.
As always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated
One of the things I admire about your buildings are the interiors.ReplyDelete
What a great start you have made.
Thanks Clint and to think that I originally thought not to make an interior!Delete
Nice "bits" to help bring the church to life, Zab.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jay, always a good idea to have some viable cover in a Church.Delete

Thanks Francis, I guess I must be doing something right then; you on the otherhand...Delete
