built in torch

my final thing that i have to ask before building and shooting is here! on one of my final scenes i have 4 torches. This may sound weird but i need to make the torches attach to a desk. in other word i have to make the illusion that 4 torches are built into a desk. i have an idea that i can sculp a torch and then get a rim of clay the same color of the desk and stick it on everything attached to the rim. anthing can help. sienara mad chicken productions :-) (-:

That sounds as though it could work okay. Do you mean torches of the flaming kind, rather than the flashlight kind?

I'd like to see that. Make sure you share some pictures when it's done, please.

Are you planning to use real flames in those torches or some other non-flammable technicque? If you're planning on real flame be careful what you use to make those torches, super sculpey can burn (and it smells really bad when it does), I have no idea how much heat magic sculpt and stuff like that can withstand. Some plumber's epoxies (hardware store has them) are made for high heat and might be your best bet. Of course if you aren't using real flame ignore everything I just said.

if you attach the torch on but add the flame on using a computer, its really easy!
