09.00hrs and the project is a go !!
First up fix an old Champagne box to base board. This has had one end chopped off and stands 36cm tall. The box will create a sturdy centre for the volcano plus creates an inside for something I have planned later on.
|Cut roughly to 36cm high|
|Glued and screwed to baseboard.|
Step two glue in skewers around the base to hold the polystyrene heart of the volcano.
|Simple bbq skewers hold the polystyrene in place|
As you can see in the following pictures as the volcano takes shape I have not been particularly careful in measuring pieces. Afterall you are not going to see this in the final pictures.
Working around the heart of the volcano I start building up the sides. As you can see this in not going to be even all the way round.
|The build is happening|
|All the way to the top,...|
So my final picture of the day...a polystyrene clad box...
