I have been asked by many people ,how do people make those new items? Well I dunno I call this technique combining ,blending or melting. Each to me is a totally different technique.
Combining:This is where you take 2 items and make something look the same but have a added feature, such as a stove with a pot on it,or a fire place with actual fire.
Blending:This is where you take 2 or more items and make some thing new out of them. More like art work.
Melting: This is where you take items and melt them into walls, furniture to only show pieces of each item used. To create a entirely new piece of furniture.
These are all still types of floating but to me they take more work than just floating a rug. I am hoping by the time I am finished here you will see why I call these 3 different techniques.
Combining Let me show you a fire pit. You float the fire which I used a basic camp fire and a couple of candles, just like another floating you simple float those and place the fire pit on top illustrations below. This will give a complete look to your fire pit of it having fire.
Step 1 floating the fire
Step 2 dropping fire pit.
Step 3 We have fire!
Blending now we are going to get a bit complicated. Blending is when you take items and blend them into a complete new look as a piece of abstract art or simply blending rocks together to make a new scene in a house. As blending rocks to make a new scene from my Watchtower Hall was the question, Ill use that to show how.
first off you will need a small rug, a chessboard, a few tatami floor mats from Mooshu and all the items you want to make the scene. You first start by placing the small rug and chessboard then you are going to take a tatami floor mat and place your first item on it, by moving only the mat you will be able to blending your item with many other items, by leaving board and placing more and more items blending them together. don't worry if it doesn't fit you can move board by clicking on the rug attached and move it. One thing to remember is tatami mats can be seen so placement of these will need to be in certain orders, so that a floor mat doesn't ruin the scene you want to create. couple of illustrations below.
Melting, I believe this is the hardest step to do as it takes much practice and details to me mean everything. I will explain what I did to make this scene then give a list of items needed to make it.I will be using a wraith statue, Dragonspyre crafted bed and a wraith pet and create a new bed ;) Items used tatami mat for wraith statue ,6 crates, 7 small blue trimmed rugs, chessboard,tic tac toe board statue, bed and pet. As shown in earlier blog posts to get the wraith high enough I needed to float him, then place the bed under him. you are now able to move the bed any where you want with your new wraith head board. Once placed I needed 4 crates high to place the pet in hand, floated pet by using a tic tac toe board on top of the 4 crates. This is basically same way you make bunk beds. Here are some illustrations below. Hope you enjoy them. Until next time, happy house decorating.
