Homemade pillars - what do you think of them ?

Post by crioux » Tue Apr 07, 2009 8:42 am

Very interesting! The next time I'm at Dollarama, I'll be getting those. I'll be checking more closely than usual to see what I can use to make DF stuff.

(For non-canadians: Dollarama is a store where everything cost 1$)

Thanks.

Following on the "HOW-to make DF compatible X" using cheap commonly found items...

Since, I'm always in need of these very practical pieces, I decided to make some by myself-
Here's my take on the pedestal made out of a "Cig-out" cube found in a Dollorama store:
(Big thanks to you, smokers!!!)

(does require a bit of dexterity to make the stone look, but not that much... I suppose variations could include Marble-like effects, so no engraving would be necessary. I personally prefer to have them match the existing pieces for now..)

Petco has some great greek style pillars that are $2 a piece. They have a real nice weathered look to them.

HEheh, Actually in my most recent picture post, Temple of the Ancients I have one in a number of Shots... BUT it's one of the crystal ones, and it's not being used as a Pillar... So it might not be what you want...

I MAY have a pic of my scratchbuilt castle, but the drive they'd be on isn't connected right now. Let me check and get back with them, IF I still have any.
