Who’s a fan of GoT? Well I have started to watch it and I have to say, is it just me or is it soft porn? I tried to watch it but after watching the episodes with the man who married all his daughters and got them all pregnant, then the episode where they killed all those children, that was enough for me. It’s been a fantastic place for inspiration for my work, and because of this, I am now making a replica of The Iron Throne, but that’s as far as it goes.
I have managed to build the chair and it is now ready to decorate with the swords, going to take me a few months, but I’m loving the challenge so far. I’m really hoping that it will be show cased at Margam Castle on the 9th and 10th of August for the Heroes and Legends Autograph show. Julian Glover is attending, so wouldn’t it be incredible if I could get a picture of him sat in it? I tell you something though, it hasn’t been easy so far.
Last week I decided to use expanding foam for the first time, Great, yes? Well when that stuff touches your skin, it’s not so great because it is almost impossible to get off. Of course I didn’t know this when I picked some up that had exploded onto the cardbored. I loved the feel of it. it was like spongy silk until I tried to wash it off. I tried everything, Bleach, floor cleaner, washing powder, suger, expanding foam gun cleaner, nail varnish remover, wd40, you name it, I probably tried it. Nothing worked. It’s been 5 days and it’s still on my hands. I ended up using a nail file in the end, but it still have it across the backs of my hands lol. Oh well, if you don’t laugh, you cry!!!
After a while I thought it was funny, till I realised I would have to drive home!!! Adam to the rescue lol
