We asked our designer Ady Braddock about his favourite project of 2018!
Explore the darker side of miniatures by creating a 1/12th scale coffin for your fright night scene.
Ady Braddock, Designer:
"There's lots of little elements in this issue that I loved! I actually have two top projects, ‘Fright Night’ and ‘Cash for Cadavers’, both which feature gorgeously ghastly graphics."
You will need:
2mm thick sheet wood
2mm x 32mm wooden sticks (x8)
Burnt umber and raw sienna acrylic paint
Hinges and pins (x2)
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
2 Apply glue to the corresponding edges and leave to dry. Once ready to be handled, glue each side piece to the edge of the coffi n base (template piece A).
3 Position and glue the supports in each corner, in addition to the centre of both longer sides.
6 Line the coffi n and lid with your chosen fabric, securing it in place using a touch of glue.
7 Lay your doll inside and position the lid as desired before adding to your Halloween scene.
