Nice work guys! The detail is fantastic!
Whoo! I won!
Thanks all who voted for my gorintōs!
That was fun! (And this is also a little fun!)
I'd like Master Po as my prize! (And I've sent you a note through the contact form which I'd like you to take a look at.)
I'll also get up some more pictures of the rest of the gorintōs for my temple grounds, and another WIP picture or two. (And perhaps finish the last of them.)
(And then on to the next part of my terrain project!)
I follow the rules of bushido. I am a bushi.
Congratulations buddy a well fought contest but the best man won in the end! Now, I demand a tutorial for everyone else! you are truly the king of foliage do my next table is going in a different direction!
Never tell me the odds: Han Solo;)

1) Buy as much flock and stuff you can get.
2) Glue it to the base.
But seriously, sure, I'll do a tutorial about how to grow your garden. It's much easier than real plants, they always turn brown here, no matter what glue I use.
So, here come the last of my WIPs and pictures of all my gorintōs.
The last masters. Most of the stuff is easy to see what it is. The pieces under the dice is plaster cast in moulds made by bigger dice. The middle pieces, the pyramids, are casts from a d10 and a d8.
Casts of the above, after I've gone over them with a knife. The leftmost is the diamond gorintō, and the rightmost isn't finished yet.
The third from the left is the one with my attempts at characters. I simply draw them with a pencil and then used an ordinary pin to trace over and over. One of the nice things about working in plaster.
And here they all are. The diamond sutra gorintō stands out a little more like it does in reality, but not quite. Shifting light really does it.
And here's a better pic of it.
Congratulations mate, a well deserved win. You really went to town with the details. The flowers are a really nice touch. Are they pre made tufts or flock on flock?
I would love to see these kind of terrain challenges become a regular thing... perhaps every other month. GCT prizes optional :)
Creating masters and moulds is a great idea and I have purchased some instance mould for the next project.
Looks very good!
I have a question:
How made you the red flowers and farns?
The flowers are from MiniNatur.
The ferns are made of fronds from small plastic palm trees.
These things all look great, and easy to make.
i will soon be having a go at these myself i think.
