As each casting is of a different density and therefore accept stains differently, Tom Yorke now assembles the building and then seals the castings with a light coat of paint.

I like to use white primer in a spray can.

Try not to have your castings look polka dot looking.

Using very thin stains, begin staining.

I use cheap acrylics.

Let the first pass dry and then do it again with different colors or shades.

The real secret is to use several very thin coats.

Blocks are brighter on the top than on the bottom due to the sun hitting them.

Pour a slab of plaster, seal and practice.

Be sure to keep your reference photo handy for comparison.

Prowl around on this site for ideas.

This is not the usual type of modelling that's presented on the forum, but I thought I'd share a few images from a CG animated short titled Melvin, currently in progress in the studio. It's essentially a short story about self-awareness and discovery, becoming the individual you want to be rather than remaining the anonymous stereotype that those around you expect you to be. First image is of Melvin himself, the main character.



This next image is a work-in-progress opening shot of the city environment which will establish not only the physical nature of Melvin's world, but the emotional feel of the bulk of the story. Still a lot of detail work to do on the set, adding litter and so on.



The third image is the interior set, again with more litter detail to be added.
