In addition the edges of the 2 foot x 2 foot tile have been smoothed-out with filler and should be given a coat of sealer this week. The painting should start very soon.
The next stage will be to attach the shrine to the tile. The groundwork will then be built up with cardboard formers and filler.
I intend to place the shine in the centre of the tile - but at a very slight angle or twist. The groundwork style and colour have yet to be decided upon - should this be a desert scheme or full of vegetation? In addition I have yet to decide on the colour of the stone - dark or light, grey or brown?
Happy New Year - Tony
