The Wall Build

The next part of the photo-op project is to build the wall that our pirate captain is chained to and on display.

I looked at several different stone wall pictures and found 2 that I am going to use as a guide for my carved styrofoam wall.

This is the stone pattern.

This is the paint scheme.

So, for those of you who have been following my latest monster mud prop here is the second part. I noticed that the updates for this project have gotten a little long. I decided that starting another section at the projects halfway point is a good idea.

If you missed the first half of the build, you can find it here: Part 1. If you would like to see the video slide show of the entire build, you can find that here: Prop Build Video.

On to the last half of the build.
