I finished but need to photograph everything again as I did not read the whole section on the final submission.

Badly delayed, badly overworked, but still working on it.

So by my count, there's 3 weeks to go. How is everybody getting on? I think I'll make it, but I'm going to struggle to get it fully painted in time!! :'(

Iím at the painting stage too but with only 2 weekends left, I feel Iím running short on time.

I've just cast the final moulds. Now it's on to assembly of the road pieces (and smashing them 8) ).

It feels like I'm right on track, however; this is without any (more ::) ) distractions along the way. I'm lucky, in that my entry does not require that much painting, since I'm mostly using the natural colours of the materials, although there's bound to be a hick-up or two.

All in all though, I think I'm pretty much on track still :)

I am at the painting stage. I tried a new technique for stone last night and it looks a bit rubbish at the moment. I will try and rectify it tonight but I will have to leave it after that as I still have to paint some other bits, make some water and some ice out of resin (which I am nervous about as I have not done it before) and also hopefully add some snow. I do not have much chance for hobby stuff during the week so although I should be done on time I think I will be cutting it fine.

Plus one to that.
I keep thinking up ideas & then dismissing them.
Must do SOMETHING. Will decide on what in the next two/three days.
That way I MIGHT get whatever it is finished.

I've been very slowly doing layers of gloss varnish on the Dark Pool of Dark Darkness, both because you can't rush that stuff and because I'm waiting on an order of grass tufts before I get stuck into doing greenery on my piece. Hopefully the tufts get here this week and I can plow through tufting, flocking, and such in a couple of evenings, then take photos some sunny afternoon.

I've been very busy. With things unrelated to the BSC  :?. Things are looking a bit better now though.

Inspiration at last!
I won't say what is planned as it may well go completely wrong.
