Throwback: Storming the Castle

Gary Brownell from Sagebrush Community Church in Albuquerque, NM brings us this sweet, medieval castle set. (Originally posted February 2012)

Their series artwork revolved around a medieval knight so they built him a castle.

They built the turrets from 1/2 inch styrofoam from Home Depot and curved it around a 2×4 frame to form a half circle. They cut out a window in the top of the turret and used gels to make it look like stained glass.

They wallpapered the styrofoam with plastic sheeting from partycheap.com that looked like a real rock wall when lit well. (A 30′ x 4′ roll of the plastic is $12.00.)

They made the front wall out of 1″ styrofoam and notched out the top for a castle look and covered it with the plastic sheeting.

They used their existing PVC truss and suspended the round screen which was projected on by their front projector.

    please show more details on the material you used for the colums and how you curved them…and what you used for the stained glass windows…it’s a great design!
