Official WOOF's cry for help..
Lately I've been using several water effects on larger pieces.
This worked quite well, but I still had the problem of the stuff leaking.
Now I want to create a water effect portion on a larger oval or round base.
A mini will sit on a rock and there will be water around it with some marine life in it.
Now my main problem here is, how to seal that base so I can pour resin without leaking?
What do you use to prevent it?
Is there some material I can buy/use to enclose a round/oval base to do this?
I own several types of water effects, that's not the issue.
The issue is preventing leakage so it won't ruin the base in the end.
Anyone has experience with this?
Here’s my next big project, a 1984 Ral Partha dragon. This old fellow was in pieces when I received him, and painted. I’ve cleaned him up, removed the old epoxy glue, pinned him back together, and tonight realized it looks like he’s rising out of the water. He needs a bigger base, which I have (75x46mm oval). But I have never done any basing, and I’d like to create a base that extends the appearance of water. I have no idea how to do that, so any and all suggestions and illustrations are welcome!
Hi everyone, it is with great pleasure that I present you today my latest project. I just completed the display base for the eleven Fox Critters I painted at the beginning of the year. I used Woodland Scenics ready-made fall colors trees and Bachmann Scene Scapes spruce trees as well as various undergrowth foliage, turf, natural stones, sand and realistic water effect. The base itself is made of wood, masonite hardboard and putty. I made the benches and the tente frame with real branches. For more details see the Fox Critter Rogue Camp Diorama WIP.
The camp fire, the two chest and all the Fox models are magnetised to the base and can easily be removed. Every Fox are from Dark Sword Miniatures and were sculpted by Dave Summers.
Your comments are very welcome.
I've made a start on a new piece of scenery, a foot bridge crossing a narrow stretch of river.
The tile is sized to fit with my other river pieces, but I'd like it to be an attractive little standalone model in its own right. We shall see.
The bridge is one that I 3d-printed from a model I found on Thingiverse; I thought it was bigger when I started printing it, but it will do OK as a foot bridge — its total length is about 70mm. The base is 3mm MDF, sealed with black spray primer. The rock formations are DAS air-drying clay, press-moulded into Woodland Scenics rubber rock moulds, and the rest of the groundwork is SculptaMold plaster/paper goop. The steps and flagstones are just pressed and scribed into that once it had firmed up but not actually set hard.
