|Here are the tools I used. Most are basic sculting tools that can|
be found at any hobby shop. The brass rod was hammered out
to create the cobblestone and the sponge helps create a texture.
|Super Sculpey firm and miliput are what I use to create the|
stonework. the ratio is 1:1.
|I added cork board to a piece of plastic card to give an even|
height and added magnets so the painted minis wont go
flying around in transport.
|With the putty mix flattened out I laid flat strip and built|
up the basic shape of the diorama. I used the brass rod to
create the stone shapes then waited for everything to cure.
|After curing I went over each stone to clean up them up and|
freed the bases from the putty. The lamp was a mix of tube
scraps the I found at the hobby store.
|To add to the scene I mixed some white glue and water,|
painted all the cracks in between the stones and dusted the
whole thing with fine sand. At this point the base was ready
for priming and paint.
