Build Your Own "Evil Dead" Cabin Model

Ever wanted your own cabin in the woods as seen in the "The Evil Dead"? Well here's your chance to create your very own replica!

With the guidance of freelance Set Designer, Producer, Perfomer and Director, Lance Cardinal, you'll learn how to create one in this step-by-step image guide. (Please remember that this is a visual guide, you'll have to improvise on the design as well as measurements.)

It all begins with foam core and twigs.

The porch is forced perspective to give false depth when viewed from the front

Stonework is made with Crayola Model Magic air dry compound.

Boards are drawn into foam core and will be painted later.

Roof  tile is cereal box (best thing to keep around for modeling)

I made the shingles smaller as it went up higher to add to the forced perspective effect

Cereal box trim and boards

Twig posts added in

More twigs added as trees. I know there would be light and these twigs will light up nicely.

Paint treatment begins.  Age and weathering.

Notice the chimney is black before stone finishing treatment

Dry brushing always gives an aged and dramatic effect

Tissue paper and glue is placed all over ground to cover surface

Stone paint treatment

Leaves added when glue is still wet, it will vanish later.

Leaves really add the "Evil Dead" feel
