Default Arsenic Asylum (papier mache)

This project was a little different, I built a miniature of an insane asylum for a new blog called Arsenic Asylum. The miniature was made from recycled cardboard, covered in papier mache, painted then photographed and edited in photoshop.

Here’s the link to the tutorial and the blog where the finished shots were used.

This was a very fun project, the main goal of the new blog is to create a believable back story for my 2012 yard haunt.

This is fantastic work! I can't believe the detail and close up you would never be able to tell that it is paper mache. Bravo!

I love that you used your own gargoyles, and I love how you dumped flour on it for the snow scene... the entire thing is just super cool.

Amazing. So you are not only the King of papier mache. You now are a wiz at photoshop and a dam good photographer too! You did a beautiful job. The photos have an amazingly creepy feel to them
