The Making of the Wonderland Chess set / by Miss Mindy & Ahab's Shipyard!
At last a teenie peek into the process.. (It would take a whole website and feature film to show you the in's and out's of this scratch built set, but here's a go!)
"The Wonderland Chess Set is an immaculate One of a Kind piece, painted in my unique style, and inspired by Lewis Carolls Wonderland stories and the 1951 Disney animated feature Alice in Wonderland..,With it's mix of 32 customized 3"and Jr. Vinylmation figures, all hand-embellished, sculpted & painted, it's an insane detail feast for your eyes!
The awesome Chess Board is a hand-crafted by Ahab's Shipyard.. He's created a multi-media playground which fuses poplar, pine and bass woods with resin, stone and synthetic turf. Who wants to do yard work anyway, right?! If you look closely, you'll spy a tiny little sculpted Alice watching the game on the side lines, amongst the various flora, fauna, felines, and crafted elements framing the playing field of these mini marvels... enjoy your trip to Wonderland! - -We've been there.... and back again, and find our reality boarders between the two...hence why our neighbors think we're weird.. "
