More stamping cobble molds into concrete. It actually looks kinda fun…But of course it’s hard work!
The plaster men putting the cobble molds down then stamping them into the concrete.
I though you all would enjoy seeing a few photos of how the cobbles were made. Our main Plaster Man Alex King sent me a few photos to share with you. First they pour the concrete into the giant 40ft. X 40ft. form of the court. Next all the plaster men spread out the concrete, then they place the molds that they made of real cobbles on top of the concrete. Next they stamp the molds into the concrete then pull them off and let set for three or four days….and VOILA instant 18th century cobbles!
This is Nicki McCallum our Amazing supervising Art Director on the balcony overlooking the court.
This photo shows how we dressed up the court for vendors selling their wares, I think this was for the scene where they are getting ready for the big dinner party with Bonnie Prince Charlie.
