So. I decided to try and make some ponds... Maybe with other water features.

I have 2 silicone mats and several hot glue guns. I used both and used a fondant roller to flatten things out.

I'm going to try a few things. This is about 1-1.5in x 2+in

Next thing will be to see if I can cover that seam with medium. Then I'll use a light phtalo to color one side. I'll take a pic of that step.

I also have some cheap silicone straws I might try. See if I can get a nice cylinder, freeze the straw to force it out (if it won't come out in its own).

So today I got this fake potted plant from the dollar store that gives me 9 big bunches and 2 little ones. I'll be making 6 trees and 5 jungle /underwater plants.

Cork is for size. I am aiming to do straw Experiments tonight and will use that for a trunk if successful.

Learning some more stuff. Definitely hard to get more than 1 inch.

Good for stalactites and stalagmites I think. Apparently I didn't take a picture of the good bit.

I will have some very weird little trees I think.

Using 4 sticks of glue (2 fitted together & 2 guns ) doesnt create a bigger surface, and it's about all I could hope to actually roll flat before it hardens but it looks better. Next to try fitting stuff together.

While stuff is drying, I might do a row with this unused baking sheet (I have permission). I envision a crystal or ice tomb, and smaller tombs, because they have more weight than plain foam core, and I can etch designs. Both of these will be 2020 posts.

So I tried my first mold-the cavern tiles.

It'll take a bit of getting used to to not overfill the mold, but already I'm getting better. Took about 30 minutes and 8 glue sticks. It'll need a bit of cleanup.

First push in glue 20200101_133135.thumb.jpg.b749b9a8da5bcfe1bc763cd1290a319c.jpg

Then peel back to check and fill as needed20200101_133121.thumb.jpg.a8b1e0494d822d1476cb812fab19927c.jpg

Easy de-molding

Cleanup required

      This is a storage box/ terrain house I'm building for my kid's High Rollers set (which was found today and played with all without the knowledge it was a gift).
      Will have removable roof maybe with shingles. Currently  just have walls and door. The extra cardboard from the door will disappear.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      I decided to do the big treant today to have something that I could do quickly.
      Here's today in a few pics. They got a bit out of order.
      Green beard, orange mushrooms, black + browning shadows, brown + light brown in highlights.  not sure what more I'll do. May not get to paint until the weekend.

      My kid loves stealing my dice.
      So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet.
       
      Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
