Jumanji Board- 4 days to go!

I’m calling this angry Monday… Needless to say,  the silicone I left to set over the weekend did not set.  The scales I was using are really unreliable and I think I put way too much catalyst in.

So I had to re-do that section of sculpt and the mould. Boring and a waste of time.

Not to mention the hinges I left drying… One popped off the moment I tried to open the box. Amazing Monday morning.

But I did eventually get the hinges on. (You can also see that I have managed to paint and varnish the playing board. Didn’t take too many pictures of it yet as I’d like to wait until it’s properly completed.)

Finally stuck down the fastcast resin board to the inner box.

And after I re-sculpted the little ring that fits around the green resin in the centre I made a silicone mould and got the casts done.

Will be spraying them silver tomorrow and fitting them onto the board. Also need to get the magnets into the playing pieces and paint them up.

Thank god angry Monday is over. Roll on productive Tuesday.


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…

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- Hinges and Compartments

Yesterday I focused on getting the compartments on the board finished (or nearly finished). I added a magnet to each of the lids, these are attracted to the screws in the bottom section.

and it actually works… I’ve held it upside down and everything.

I started on the hinges today. It was not fun.

This is the test piece, which took far too long, but was necessary :

And yes, the hinges really do look like this on the actual board.

Marked out all the pieces on Birch wood. Decided to use Birch because it is stronger and will hopefully be able to withstand a bit more movement than pine.

This took hours. Literally. Because they are pretty small I had to do a lot of hand sanding… or else risk loosing a finger on the disc sander. Even knowing that, I was pretty risky and got most of it sanded back using it. Did the rest by hand.

Sorry this is a boring post(!) Will be getting the hinges on tomorrow. Hopefully some exciting looking pictures up soon. I have 1 week, so will have to start the paint job pretty soon, and that’s the fun bit.
