I have started a new blog, that will be developing slowly. I require a desert landscape for this. Therefore I decided I would build one.
Stage one of the project. A gaming mat.
There are many tutorials out there about the design of gaming mats. I drew inspiration from most of them and I will reference them on my new site.
First: The requirements
2. A pressure gun (£1.00)
3. 2 x Tubes Latex Caulk (£1.00 each)
4. A pair of work gloves (£1.00)
5. A spreading instrument (£1.00)
All other items from work box.
(Ntote to self: Practice Macro-photographing.)
Measure out gaming area. In this case 36" x 34". This is because it was the maximum size of my hard work surface.
Put caulk on cloth and spread out using scraper. Wear you gloves. I usually wouldn't, but I needed to do other things and would get putty all over the house.
Speckle/texture with a sponge and leave to dry.
Next episode: Under coating and painting. This'll take a while as I am no longer rushing my projects.
Have a good time modelling gang.
