We made a Treasure Chest
Our good friend and resident artist Chris Reid sketched us an idea for a donation box this year. The main part of the prop is a large treasure chest. So I bought some fence boards at home depot on Friday and started work this Saturday. We got the box built and aluminum strap on it. Then Sunday our friend Elyssa textured and painted the aluminum. I also cast a latch and padlock using some quick cast resin. The basic concept is 2 small mud guys holding a chest. The chest is fake with a real latch and padlock in back to hold the donations. It is looking good!
