Those are some nice asteroids he is making!
Thanks for the tip Tanker! I've seen those at my LHS and I might get my hands on some of these one day. I should have explained the reason why I was asking for tips on moulding rocks ; I actually found the rocks I want to use in my backyard but, the only problem is that, well, they're rocks and there pretty heavy ! I though I could make molds out of them and cast them with resin or plaster to make the diorama lighter. Anyway, I'm not quit there yet so I'll be playing with that idea.Tanker52 said:A suggestion the rocks and boulders, look at the train section of your local hobby shop. Also, check out Hobby Lobby or craft stores that carry train accessories. There are molds for casting boulders as well as premade rocks that you can paint.
Oh yeah, sooo cool !Jaitea said:This guy is making Asteroids....if that would help
No no no, sorry for the mix up. I'm still going for a lava base, but instead of using the plaster to make the ground, I'll use cork; it's pretty easy to break up and it'll hold the paint better, I think, right ?ModelMakerMike said:
Too bad you scrapped the Lava Idea....I was in love with it!
But I am sure whatever you choose will be great!
I know.... that's why I initially wanted to mold and cast the rocks, but I have a hard time finding 2 parts resin in a large quantity, all I can find is tiny little kits for arts & crafts. Some one gave me in address in a nearby town yesterday, I'll check it out this weekend.Grendels said:Either base would have looked good! But that natural rock is going to be heavy....
