I am going to sculpt some custom blocks to work with the Hirst molds I already have. Then I am going to make molds of my custom blocks and treat them the same as my Hirst molds. Yesterday I purchased some of the same mold material that Hirst uses.
My first mold will be to work with the fieldstone dungeon blocks. Right now I can only make straight corridors and right-angle turns. I am going to create some curved walls so I can have a more organic look to my dungeons. That way I can have odd shaped rooms, curving hallways, etc. I’m also going to make some archways to fit my doors and some custom floor tiles.
My second mold will be to create some cavern segments such as stalactite dangling archways or stalagmite floor pieces which are intended to be stand alone. Also I want some more flexible wall elements for my caverns. I like the Dwarvenforge cavern wall blocks much more than the Hirst ones, so I’ll use those as models.
If I have enough mold material for a third mold I will work on some accessories like beds, chests of drawers, tables, chairs, etc. If my hydrostone is too fragile for those I can always use resin and make much sturdier ones.
I will be making the “originals” which will become the basis for my molds out of Sculpey clay which I will “carve” with my rotary grinding tool and some files.
Should be fun. 🙂
