Last night, just as I was laying down for bed I had an idea. I tossed and turned for an hour or so. Quar fever had struck and I was helpless to deny the urge to create something Quar related. So I made these termite nests. Then for some reason I decided it would be a good idea to mow the lawn since it was light outside and I was awake. Worst idea ever.



The first of many, many termite mounds to come.

If this is gibberish, you all have my apologies. I need sleep.[/i]

Yes, these are very cool and you should tell us how they were done.

If they're actually termite nests, I'm fairly impressed.

1)crumple paper and cover with sculpy

2)pull some spires up, poke a few random holes here and there (dont go over board though),

3)heat it up and let cool

4)glue a thin piece of plasticard to the bottom. make sure you do this cuz sculpy's a bear to get flat and level without sanding.

5)cover the whole sucker in liquid adhesive of your choice (i used superglue) and dip it in sand.

6)prime black, sloppy base coat of a muddy grey color, drybrush a billion shades of brown. took me forever to get a good brown for some reason. i mixed all the color custom so i cant give you any specifics there.

building them took about 30 minutes including waiting for the oven to preheat and baking. super easy.

still need sleep.

That's a great tutorial. Thanks for sharing! Cool Cool Cool
They look impressive and very convincing. A little bit larger, and they would be perfect for a farmhouse. Idea
