Build Something 2015 - the glowing forge

With the first bit of paint applied to interior of The Horseshoe Forge, I am getting close to the time when work-in-progress updates will stop. See contest rules at The Lead Adventure Forum - Build Something page here.

Image Two - The tea light flame has been wrapped in masking tape while the forge and hood have been painted with a variety of different acrylic paints.

Image Three - The interior of the forge was painted and drybrushed. In truth, there is very little seen once the forge is in place.

Image Four - In this image I have turned the model up-side-down so that the tea light base and switch can be seen.

Image Five - I picked up these coloured beads for £1.00 at the local RANGE store.

Image Six - And used the black, red and orange beads to build up the glowing coals in the forge. The beads were glued in place with superglue.

Although there is still lots to do, I suspect the daily updates will soon be finishing.
