Friday 13th Scene


I’ve been commissioned to create a scene based on Friday 13th.

Building the scene 

I’ve cut two pieces of foam board 14″ x 10″ and glued them both together. I am using bolsa wood for the floor, which I have arranged the pieces around the floor plan I drew out. The gap in the floor will be for a wall with a door.


The back wall will be double sided with a window and I might put a small garden or something out the front.

Cut tabs into the bottom of both walls and slots into the base to marry up with the tabs. Cut a doorway into the smaller wall and a window into longer wall.


I was going to use bolsa wood for the floor but replaced that idea with 6 mm foam board. This secures the walls into place and stops them from moving around.


I added soil to the front of the house as a flower bed. On both sides of the set I drew horizontal lines 1 inch thick, scored into the lines using a pottery tool to look like planks of wood. I did the same with floor. Using a wire brush against the walls which gave them a lovely wood effect.


Using bolsa wood for the door frame and skirting boards. Along the bottom of front of the outside I used a length of wood.



Started to apply the black base coat.



Finished adding the base coat then covered the soil area with moss and grass.


For the floor and external wall I’ve base coated with Burnt Umber, internal walls with ceramic white.



Made a light brown and dry brushed this other all of the wooden surfaces. Using GW Storm vermin Fur I dry brushed over the wooden surfaces again.


Made the window today using perspex, bolsa wood for the frame. Once all sanded the window has been glued into pace and ready to be painted.


Dry brushing a light brown over all of the dark brown wood work, including the window frame. This build is almost complete.


Being a diorama worthy of Jason, I’ve added blood splatter around the walls and floor with a little blood pooling in the middle o the floor. Demonstrated by model (no idea who he is!). For the blood I’ve used GW Blood for the Blood God, it makes a nasty mess don’t you think?
