Christmas nativity in a Rotera lantern





I realized a Christmas Nativity scene in a ROTERA Lantern made for block candle.

You need: ROTERA Lantern for block candle (002.528.61), cutter, polystyrene, battery powered led lights, hot glue, plasticine, sawdust, gypsum plaster, acrylic colors, brush, 8 statues.

01. use 4cm depth polystyrene and battery powered led lights

01

02. cut some stairs as you like

02

03. fix led lights chain between the glass using hot glue

03

04. make an arch with plasticine realizing also some bricks

04

05. mix sawdust and gypsum plaster in 9:1 ratio (almost)

05

06. fix it in some parts of the arch (when plasticine is solidified

06

07. … on the 4 sides

07

08. smooth out if you like

08

09. put the sawdust and gypsum plaster on the hexagonal base

09

10. check if all the nativity statues are o.k. on the base

10

11. colour the base with brown acrylic color diluted with water in 1:20 ratio

11

12. use 4-5 different browns, white, 2 different yellow and dark green

12

13. colour the leaks among the bricks with full color (not diluted) and immediately wash the excess of color with a wet sponge

13

14. … so the darker color remains only in the leaks among the bricks

14

15. colour some bricks with different brown colors and realize the wooden doors

15

16. colour them with acrylic full color (not diluted)

16

17. assemble all the pieces with hot glue

17

18. put it in the ROTERA Lantern for block candle (002.528.61)
