Jumanji Board …Oh the hinges.

Well I got one side on! God knows if the box will open now. It doesn’t look hopeful if I’m honest…

Jumanji board- hinges

I used steel rod in the centre and cut a slightly larger hole about 1cm in from one end to add wooden dowel. Acts as a stopper, but the actual hinge is very strong inside.

We will see what happens on Monday… Fingers crossed.

I also sculpted a quarter of the metal inner ring today from plastelline.

And made a mould just from gluing plastic around the shape.

Filled with silicone…

That is another thing to wait until Monday for. To see if the silicone sets properly. It was behaving rather strangely when I left today, sort of setting on the top and not at all underneath. Roll on Monday

Jumanji board, today’s work

Things seem like they have slowed down a little, but It’s mainly due to me having to figure out how I’m going to do something.

Today I made the central section of the board (the green, shiny, round bit!)

I made a wooden disc that was the right size and slightly domed. (sorry about the AWFUL picture)

Vac formed it…

Then filled the plastic mould with green pigmented resin. Got to wait until tomorrow for it to cure, then I’ll see if it’s worked and looks accurate.

I also cast the compartment lids in fastcast today, and stuck them to 6mm ply.

So this is just a jumble of images from today.

finished carving out all the box edges:

Realised I hadn’t done the compartment lids for inside the box. So I completed that part today. Just needs casting tomorrow

Got these little guys cast

This is everything I have achieved so far!

Feel like I’m getting there. 🙂


Jumanji Board- Moulding and Casting

The silicone moulds came out beautifully.

Caught all the detail really well. So all I needed to do was fill them with fast cast. Because the moulds are quite thin and they don’t have a jacket on them, I just had to make sure the surface of the table was completely flat- hence the spirit level.

Fast cast has a curing time of about 10 mins so I was able to see the outcome pretty quickly. Really pleased with how the casts look. There are a few bubbles in there, but nothing that cant be fixed with a bit of filler.
