|I bought some strips of metal with holes in to screw the two pieces of wood together.|
I had originally glued the two pieces together and used milliput to fill any gaps, however, this was not strong enough.
|This picture shows the lion and my props on the set. I just wanted to see how things were looking and how well the wood balanced on the turn table.|
|Same picture, different angle.|
|Same picture, but the animals side of the set.|
|Here I have taken the middle divider out to finish, and added hay to the flooring of the Lions scene.|
|I've decided to use material to decorate the foam board. I'm using any material I can find in the model room, that I think works well.|
|I was very lucky to find this lovely red material which works great.|
I have attached it to the foam board using just pins.
|Found some great fabric books (those example books of materials you can choose you sofa/curtains to be made from)|
|I threaded wire through the red material so that I the material has shape and can be manipulated.|
|The red fabric is just pinned in place, but I think this is finally starting to look like something I am happy with.|
(Sneaky peak of my unfinished puppets to the side there.)
