The Wizard's Lair

 

This is a secret project tied in with my youtube channel. I don't advertise it or talk about it so congratulations on finding this :)

It is a wizards lair that I am building. Here are some notes and photos. It is a full size studio set I am building in my home. It measures about twelve feet by fifteen feet in size.

Will has a youtube channel with over 700 videos on projects you can make. Check it out right here

 

 

 

Sanctum

DragonSlayer 7 Sanctum

The wizards lair is now a sanctum. And it has made an appearance in my latest stop motion animation. I used the full sized room and I also created a miniature version of it. You can check it all out here including the animation here: DragonSlayer 7 Sanctum

 

The latest addition to the Wizard's Lair is the stained glass window. Here is a shot of the room with the window installed. It is amazing how the light has changed in the room. That is natural sunlight shining through the stained glass window.

I am working on a type of armillary sphere for the wizards lair. This is a wonderful project. One of my favorites. When this project is ready I will be posting a full tutorial with youtube video on how to make one.

Here it is at an early stage.

Make a Wizard's Globe

Every wizard's lair has a globe like this. It works a lot like a gyroscope in that you can rotate the rings and the globe so it can be looked at from any angle.

The Big Paper!

Every wizard's Lair needs a big Medieval Style fantasy map. So, I am making one. As of right now the paper has been made . And I am working on the drawings for the map. You can check out how to make the big paper here. and from the big paper we make a fantasy map.
