Upcoming Live Streams
THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2 PM EDT
During our last stream, I Bob Ross’d my way through painting a stormy sky backdrop. After asking you all which classic monster house I should build inside my faux cathedral window it was a neck and neck battle between Frankenstein Castle (more specifically Young Frankenstein) and the Munsters Mansion. In the end, Frankenstein’s Castle inched out a win!
In this livestream, I’m going to get started on building the castle by transferring my cardboard template onto foam. Then we’ll decide on details like stone patterns, windows, steeples and interior LED lighting.
FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2 PM EDT
We pick up where we left off with our Frankenstein Castle foam miniature by painting all the details including stone walls, windows, rooftops and steeples. Then we’ll finalize our lighting strategy.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 2 PM EDT
With our foam castle complete and painted, now it’s time to add some eerie interior lighting as well as our main feature – the lightning bolt in the sky that lights up with the lightning detector senses an approaching storm.
FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2 PM EDT
We wrap and test both the ambient lighting and main lightning feature of our backing panel so it’s ready for the final install into the shadowbox.
MONDAY, MAY 3, 2 PM EDT
We complete the shadowbox for the faux cathedral window and get started on carving out our stone brick border out of foam.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 2 PM EDT
Our faux cathedral window is nearly complete and now it’s time to paint a convincing stone effect both on the arched window frame and surrounding stone. Then together, we’ll pick a stop on the wall to hang it and see the ambient lighting and lightning effect in action!
