Ogre Hut - Terrain - WIP
I used an empty plastic yogurt tub as the basic shape. I made the rounded roof with quick dry filler that you would use to fill cracks in your walls. Next to create the wooden structure I used toothpicks and greenstuff.
The leather hides were made from textured paper used for painting watercolour pictures cut out into hide like shapes. I added a small entrance into the hut for added detail. Next was to glue the 'hides' onto the sides of the hut and take note here, there is a correct way to do this otherwise you will end up with strange overlapping so take a minute to lay out your pattern before you glue them down. I made that mistake and am hoping the painting will not make it noticeable.
As I said earlier I was only using the article as a guide so I went for a facecloth for the roof covering which is meant to be bear or similar animal fur.
Next painting it all up.
