Back with more Lighthouse shenanigans!! I found this piece of orange gel which I attached using an old pair of tights to give the inside that bowed in light look. Strange combination of things but it does the trick.
As it stands it is beginning to look much more like a Lighthouse. I decided to give the rock a quick coat of paint before I then textured it. To do this I simple painted a dark grey layer of paint, waited for it to dry and then gently brushed over it using a piece of paper towel covered in a lighter grey colour.
In the ned this set piece turned out a lot bigger than I had anticipated... but nether the less, I soldier one with the build!!
All that was really left was to paint it. I gave the Lighthouse a quick coat of cream coloured white to help enhance the old worn out look. I then taped up around where I wanted the white stripes to be.
The final step was to do a coat of red paint. I waited for this to dry and then carefully removed the tape to reveal the fine stripy pattern. Using some copper paint I just added on some rust like details to both the base and the light piece of the Lighthouse.
I also found some fake fish kelp that I stuck down to make it look like the underwater plant life had been growing around it.
Now as I said earlier, the lighthouse turned out a great deal bigger than the original plans I had for it. To give you a rough understanding of how big it turned out, I have placed my Anchor Squid next to it.
