Working On The Gong For The Skull Island Wall

The original gong platform was cut out of plywood and was painted to give it a rock like appearance. It needed to be built up. First I hot glued pieces of styrofoam board over the plywood.

Using Apoxie Sculpt clay I covered the plywood section from which the gong hung. The clay was textured to look like rough wood. I left the clay to cure overnight.

The next morning I used a rasp to shape the styrofoam to resemble stone blocks.Starting at the top I began covering the blocks in Apoxie Sculpt clay and tooling it to give it the look of aged stone.
