I apologize for the lack of early stage images here. Everything I was doing with the Apoxy sculpt was not only very time sensitive, my hands were also covered in Apoxy sculpt slime! I probably would have dropped the camera 2 or 3 times.
This is the Groundwerks base set from CMON which I am adding onto with an 80 mm insert:
This is yet another training project for a future 'how to' DVD. This is one of my favorite designs. Just like the rock bases from the last few posts, I blocked out the main shapes with tin foil. As with the other sets, it save a lot of time and clay.
Once you get adept at working the tin foil, you can almost "pre sculpt" the base with the foil.
After establishing the logs and stump, I had to fill in the recesses with some large rocks to make it easier to cast. It also stabilizes the logs, and gives me a platform for the green stuff extras.
A nice little set of rocks in my open area for composition...
All of the rocks are now in place, and the Apoxy sculpt is fully hardened, so it is time to start working with the green stuff.
I have another post showing all the green stuff work that was done. Lots of mossy/grass texture coming up!!
