Stop Motion Set Piece: Zodiac… completed!

I have completed one of the stop motion set pieces; zodiac part. I made these out of insulation foam. For the above test pics, I added some moss around. When I put the whole set together, I will add dirt all around besides carefully placed mosses, some dead brances and maybe some roots coming from the tree of life.

Process is pretty much the same with previous making of the stairs. Only difference is that I used regular wood glue instead of foam glue. I carved those zodiac symbols over the insulation foam so, I did not want to loose details with thick foam glue. On the left top, the test stone I made before starting the whole process. On the left bottom; me with respirator… I like using it but one problem… if your nose itches, you have to take out gloves swamped with paint and then take out the respirator to reach your nose… 🙂

This is what happens when you have a 2 yearsold curious girl… -hey mum, I want to draw too.. – dad take my picture 🙂 She also helped me to paint one of the pieces in white acrylic this time!.

You do gorgeous detailed work, my tree daughter! Beautiful!
One thing about the respirator, if I am seeing it correctly the dust mask style you have there won’t help your health against toxic fumes of these glues. Please look at the these and get a hold of one somehow. And for the itchy nose, I keep a rag nearby to scratch with (in clean air) and then come back to fumes.

You want a vapor and particulate respirator, not one that is meant to filter out dust alone.

I googled this one but let me look further, and find out more> I use a dual cartridge NIOSH regulation half mask like this that I bought for $15 at my local hardware store.

Your little sweetie there is ADORABLE! Awwwww.

Shelley, thanks a lot!! I am happy to hear you like how the chronos is coming out.
Respirator! The guy I bhought this respirator from said that this is both for dust and vapor. But I can still smell the glue… So, yes, I now see what I needed on the URL you sent. I think I need to order that on the internet. We live in such a small town and when it comes to finding some special stuff, it is almost impossible. I am going to check stores in Turkey on the net to find a vapor and particulate respirator. Thank you my tree teacher!!

Hi Yaz!!
You are too kind saying you’re gonna miss me!! But guess what? I checked in to say hi! So, “hi”! I’ll be away for a couple weeks, maybe 3. We are helping to take care of a good friend who had a big operation.
Your clock-set is looking super cool!

Hi Jessica, thank you for your comment! Yes, sure you can take the part of my post to your blog with a backlink. I have visited your site but I do not know Russian. Do you also do stop motion?
