Steps for using mold #50 to create the model shown here.
The Wizard's Tower model is one of the easiest to build. If you are a beginner, I would suggest starting with this model before moving onto some of the more difficult buildings on this web site.
The Wizard's Tower mold (#50) has a lot of basic building blocks, which you will need on most any project you want to make.
Once you complete this project, you may notice that you had not used any of the 3/4" long blocks to build this tower. The 3/4" block is a later addition to this mold, and it is very useful if you want a round topped window that is square on the bottom.
A Note For Parents With School Projects
We only sell rubber molds! (as shown on the left). The blocks shown in the instructions below are cast using the mold we send you. You will not receive building blocks in the mail, but the means to cast your own building blocks out of plaster.
If you're going to use the model for wargames and other heavy use, you'll want to protect it with a coat of flat varnish or lacquer.
The completed model is shown here with a few finishing touches such as doors, grass, bushes and terrain. The base for this model was carved from a block of blue foam. Ground cover was added using railroad scenic materials. The doors were made from mattboard.
Keep in mind that you can build any design you want! Make it twice as large, or with additional towers. The possibilities are endless!
