  1. I think this is an excellent first result with water effects. I hope you do more with it, because I see some real potential here. I recommend doing a few test pieces of different shapes and depths, as a sort of 'R&D'. Try using a rigid side support, such as wax paper on wood. After you've done a couple of pours and they've dried, brush one sample down with Future floor polish; then you'll have a side-by-side comparison. In short, keep at it, because you're really onto something. :poke:

  2. I came across this stuff called Green Cast, which is apparently gaming terrain made out of recycled rubber.

    I love that this stuff keeps a few tires out of the landfills. It comes pre-finished, but it can be stripped/repainted/modified/mutilated to your heart's desire.

    Anyway, here's a link:



    I was wondering what people thought of it, and no I'm not a shareholder. :;):

  3. If you're interested in continuing with this, the model train folks are the 'Old Masters' at this type of thing. I remember reading model train books dating from the 50's about using found objects to make scenery. Check out Model Railroader and Railroad Model Craftsman magazines. There metric are buttloads of knowledge for just the stuff you're doing.
