I just rolled some Sculpey in a ball and cut in half for two bubbles.

good idea.
I liked the bubbles in your lava. How did you do that?
Not speaking for him of course, but a way I've seen bubbles done is by gluing small hemispheres that are sold as little jewelry making things (to make earrings and such), then painting over.

Edit: things like these I mean:

Thanks, Oldent, and correct, Marcoreds. Bubbles are half hemisphere beads I bought at craft store. Mine happen to be a medium pearl/metallic grey. Color is not an issue since I paint over. Have assorted diameters.

Also have some that are transluscent/clear, a little shorter/flatter in the Z axis, and linked together. Clear, so I can throw them down on any color scheme.
thanks
I will spend some time in the bead section.

I used some half round glass for a 40K. I think his looks better

I did for a plain tile. I could glue the tiles to the acrylic. I would have to experiment with the glue.
I love the modifications on your lava tiles.
I am going to try some packing/vacuform plastic
Thanks.

There's also the thin hard plastic one finds on art prints/frames (instead of glass). I'll need to check HL and Michaels to see if they sell it separately.

I am going to add a wash to make the floors blend better with the Resin caverns.

This photo is a good example of problems with resin water. If the resin is deep, any thing placed on top will look it is floating.If I used something like Stillwater or Realistic water placing terrain on top of it will damage it in moderately hot weather. I am going to use a Smooth on resin product. More on that later.
Have you considered a thin acrylic sheet? maybe 1/8" or so. I've had some 3/8" laser cut for a side project, will check with my store and see how thin acrylic has to be before you can cut it "at home".

Downside to acrylic is it can scratch easily.
