As they are, they'd make nice roundels for a Master's TARDIS as well!Depending on your resources, an option for roundels that is common here is casting duplicated out of resin or some other material. How large are the bowls? I fear they may look a bit small on a full size door!
Quote from: Volpone on May 22, 2023, 03:18 pmYeah, technically they're a little small if you're going by the actual onscreen ones, but you can take advantage of that for a "forced perspective" effect--the room will look bigger because the roundels are smaller and thus appear farther away. (For true forced perspective, you've start with full-sized roundels closest the audience/camera and have them gradually smaller as you went back.) When I first did my TARDIS, I didn't have actual windows. I just painted window-sized spots grey and then put the glass and frame over them. Then I bought a pack of styrofoam plates and glued them up on the inside. Not at all accurate to the size of real roundels, but since the interior space is about 4x4 it was a kind of neat effect. These are MUCH nicer than disposable plates.
