The first step in the build is a scale drawing that is sent to the prop builder to look at and to get a quote. We were fortunate to be able to use Damian Zuch at Deville’s Workshop. Damian then built a model in Sketch Up for us to review.
The dome is actually a plastic salad bowl from the Dollar store…
The little paintings on the sides were quite specific to the story and these were farmed out to another artist (again with reference to work from)
