Making damns

The pink foam is covered with clear packing tape. Care must be taken to pour the tile to the same depth.

I am going over using Realistic Water for water effects.

Image

Pick your basing material. This is hardboard and MDF and Medium density fiberboard. I cut out the base with a jigsaw.This would be a good way to make a wet ditch for your castle. Make sure that there is a good seal. You do not want the water effect to leak.

Image

When the glue has cured, usually about 4 hours,remove the clamps and add texture . This is sand.I painted the base and sand with brown. I let that dry and trimmed the base and sanded over the bank.I could have used an edge/flush router but the belt sander was set up. You could use a palm sander or a file.

Image

I shaped the bank and finished the edge with a palm sander. The black paint add the illusion of depth.

Image

The sand was painted with a craft color Sand. The base was done with some brown and the last bit of sand.

Image

The flocking is a blend from Scenic Express. Use 50% water and white glue. The flocking does not stick well to full strength white glue.At 50% the flock soaks up the glue and wil bond.

Vacuum up any loose flocking before adding water effects.

Image

Note the level. Do not touch this for 12 hours

Image

Still 5 hours to go. Do not touch it!

Image

You can use DF colors instead of black

Image

Use the dark green in the center.

Image

Make Fountains.

Cheap is good :)

as is those amazing builds - love the use of simple LEDs, you can really got to town with those. Got some Grimlight LEDS to play around with.

A little fog in your flooded mine would give you some stunning shots we think.
My Grimlight KS should show up soon. GreenStuff world has some good sets too.

Tea lights are always fun. Thanks, I always enjoy your comments.

The modge podge is taking forever to dry. It tasks as long as any resin I have used.I can not see 30 coats. The one advantage I see is that it is cheap.

This is a tea candel

Image

This is a Woodland Scenic adjustable stick on white flat LED. The wiring kits are available where model trains are sold. It plugs into a power source like a train transformer.I am using the dimmer switch.

Image

The idea is for a raft to be pulled into a whirlpool and end up in the flooded mine.

Image

I am going to use The DF MT. tiles instead of my homemade waterfall.

That's looking very nice. Those mountain pieces turned out great for a mine look.

You're speed and quality of painting is making me want to hide my set of raised walkways in the closet.
I did finish fitting them into a DF cavern tile system and modded some for a more DF cavern feel, but they are only base coated so far. I'll post when I get them painted to a more finished look. I'm attempting a new way to paint wood, we'll see how that goes.

Can I ask where the ladders are from?
GW siege tower I think. I have some to cut to length.

I am looking forward to the mods you made to the walkways. WIP photos are cool!
They look like GW siege tower ladders to us, they look great with the SW walkways - nice Job Oldent :)

They were from Iain from Toad King Castings KS. He sells them in his web store now.

Also, he did the ones from my mushroom ring I did awhile back.

The mods looked very nice! I liked the mushrooms :!:
