Hi, I make custom display platforms to fit the scale of Department 56 and Lemax villages. If you are like me your collection keeps getting bigger every year. I ran out of room and needed to find a better way to display my cute village. So I started to make platform bases about 9 years ago. I just love to see everything come to life with everything all lit up. Each design is my own and is protected by copyrights. THIS IS A PRE ORDER! PLEASE ALLOW 1-2 WEEKS FOR CONSTRUCTION! This is a new spooky look for the Crystal Cave! It’s perfect for your grave yard and little monsters to display! Can you see the creature of the black lagoon in this cave? Please send me a message if you have questions about making it another size to fit your space. This is a large platform and will show off your Halloween village. It is made in 2 sections that fit together. The walls of the cave are all done with tempered glass. This is the same glass that is used in windshields. It is very thick and does not cut like regular glass does. It is very reflective and gives it the look of crystals. I think it looks like a beautiful green geode! I’ve painted the bottom of the cave in green slime glossy paint, dark brown sod and added some oak branches. Along the side wall are 2 large spiders who have also been slimmed! Framing the entrance of the cave are 2 oak trees! To really show off the crystals I build in 2 clear spot lights in the ceiling of the cave. They are the new LED White spot lights that are very bright! On top of the cave section is a large area for you to create a village with trick or treat kids going from house to house or a commercial strip with some pedestrians. This section also has a triple green slim waterfall cascading down into the swamp. I placed many river rocks and moss all along each level. On the section to the right, I’ve continued the slim green swamp. I added many details which include tiny river rocks, green, brown and orange lechin, silk plants and for stepping stones I’ve added oak stepping stones. Leading you to the upper section are stairs that are painted dark dark brown with slime. The upper section on the right side has lots of room for 2 large buildings and lots of accessories. The entire platform is covered with medium brown sod. I only use the best products. You will be able to easily stick pins into it. I build all of my platforms on 2 wide cut legs. Then I drill holes (1) for the wires to drop down in. This space under the platform is where you can hide the adapters and wires. My platforms are very light and weight 6 – 8 pounds. The footprint of both sections together is: 23″ x 46″. They all go by the girth of the box and this is a very large box. The item “Dept 56, Lemax Display Platform! Crystal Cave For Halloween!
