Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.
If you have a Dremmel tool, you could cut each of the pieces at the bottom. That is what I would do!
What about...instead of crenelations you just wrap the ironwork in cardboard, like a roof peak? It would look thick and substantial. The crenelations look very thin and like they aren't meant to be there. Something with more weight to it would blend with what you're doign with the stonework on the sides.
Sheila, that was just a try out kind of thing. They were going to be wrapped if I did it for real. I just plain didn't like the shape. I have another idea now.
Hi Casey I can tell that you are somewhat frustrated by the crenelations on top of the conservatory, but it also sounds like you already have a backup plan waiting in the wings. but just a suggestion- have you considered filling in over the arches along the sides with stone and then following the outlines of the black vertical supports on the ceilings and down to the base? It would give the entire structure a continuity, now that you have started seriously with the stone and yet it would still allow for all of the required light. Perhaps paper clay would work to coat the black metal enabling you to keep the supports thin enough and have it still look as though it can support the weight of the solid ends as well as the crenelations of your conservatory. as I've said- it's Just a thought
Elizabeth, you are close... Air drying Clay is what I'm using. It is working.
