The vision for the piece was very clear when I received Biff, it seemed to come naturally and clear. I wanted to have Biff, standing outside his own saloon, proprietor of this here establishment. The question is whether he obtained it through legal means is up for public debate, albeit no one will publicly debate it.

A fully customised base made from styrene sheet and a wooden plinth. The walls and general exterior are made from balsa and matchsticks. The saloon door is compiled of balsa wood, green stuff. Plaster of Paris (gypsum) was used as filler, for the trim and desert sand.  (NOT EXACTLY TO SCALE)

A laser cut MDF bicycle symbol and some letters were sanded and trimmed to create the institution’s prominent sign. Green stuff was used to create various size ropes and rigging equipment along with some old jewellery generously donated by the missus. Some barrel accessories of various sizes and the scene is ready for paint.

Mediums used:

Acrylics, Oils, Pigments, Filters (Oils/Enamels) and washes.

Tools used:

Airbrush and brush

This project afforded me the opportunity to utilize a wide variety of products and mediums. Some techniques obtained from miniature painting but also from military modelling were brought to bear and it was a joy to experiment and be creative. The adventure lay in creating a narrative through colour and thematic accessories that help enforce the context.
