I wanted something to sort of show my passion for the designs of Bioshock - the sign on the box seemed like the obvious thing to do as it incorporated the game name aswell as the art deco design inflluences and it's got so much texture and depth to it.

I wanted to do the Rapture dedication plaque scene at certain places in the first game. I had orginally planned to do my study in Art Deco with various nods to Rapture in place.

You should cannibalize one of those sheet waterfall thing and make water
flow over it like in the credits of BS2. Well, that's what I was
going to do if I did the plaque you did there. Nice job by the way.

Agree with ^ care to share the build / material details?
Makes a more interesting read!

Thanks guys,

Sorry about the lack of details - first post - not really sure what I'm doing yet!:lol

The final piece was cast in resin and fibreglass, handpainted and finished with a high gloss lacquer to achieve that wet look. I originally made a former out of mdf, styrene and plastazote with jesmonite and sand adding details such as rust. This was then moulded in RTV silicone rubber

Scots!?! Damn caber tossing, ginger haired, kilt wearing, lassie loving
Nessie chasing, haggis chewing....:darnkids

I mean, I'd probably be interested in one too. (sigh)

Even though I know the only reason you did it is because
Rapture is practically in your backyard. :)
