I sprayed flat varnish over both sides of them, them sprayed bottom with a texture cote to make them easier to lift off smooth surfaces. Painted the colors, then sprayed on a gloss varnish. They will always have a bit of flex, but I'm O.K. with it, hope she is too. :?:
I only did the textured bottom because they were "sticking" to table top, due to their flatness. They were not really sticking, just hard to lift without a long fingernail, card or tool. Now they are easy to grab.

My first batch I did for myself were out of Sculpey. When I did those I made a very thin clay base first, then added each pad. On the Green Stuff set, I just started linking pads together without a base.

Good luck, they are pretty easy.

You might want to go farther than I did and put the 'v' into each where the stems are and the leaf unfolds out from there. I did a few flowers, but gave up quickly. ;)
Thanks William! They look fantastic and they really add a lot to the scenery, I gonna give this a try! :)

Very nice, Feymous. 8-) 8-)

First showing of the lily pads. :)
FYI, these were a gift to the cause, when I was granted access to her lair. Awesome play-place.

Have been waiting for a post with them to show off. Made with Green Stuff and care. ;)

Wow, the whole scene is just beautiful. You have a certain je ne sais quoi. Also love the ivy that's attached to the red poppy flowers. Is it Noch or some other brand? Thanks for the post. :)
Wow, really, really cool William!!

What did you use to seal them off and make the greenstuff harden before you painted them?

I know I’m a little late to the party here, but….As soon as I saw the title of this challenge, a single little standing stone from my terrain collection came to mind and everything else was built around it. Long time forum members may recognize the source of inspiration. :D

Wow, thats a really nice, impressive setup!! how did you create this water/lake and where did you get this cool statue?
It's a Yansolo water sheet. More info and pics here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10982&start=10#p171677

The lizardman priest nears the end of his jungle pilgrimage. This is his first visit to the ancient temple, but he recognizes the standing stone that announces its occupant: the All Frog. Inside the temple, the priest first approaches the alter with gifts of gold and gems. Offerings made, he petitions the All Frog. Fortunately, the All Frog is pleased with the offering, for those who earn the All Frog’s displeasure must face his temple guards.
That‘s really awesome. I‘m totally drawn into the scenery. Very nice combination of the different sets and pieces. :o 8-) :)

The All Frog!

Love it :)
Are we going to see Thar the Thunder Frog?

Cracking build Feymous, very much liking how you divide the woods from the temple complex.
Nice Skink and Slann action too.

Seems like you shop at the same pet store that we do ;)
