Here are some more images of Cathy's base! You have seen the WIP images of how she built the base from the baked sculpey, carving and weathering each block, as well as the mosaic floor.
This is the second post showing the process of painting it.
Cathy did some color test marble pieces first to practice...
It's always a good idea to do such practice sessions, since it will definitely save you a lot of time and struggle, and yield a better final result.
Here is a reference she was using, a painting by John William Goodward.
Now for some images of the base after this stage of painting:
You can really see the greenish marble, along with the stains in these images...
Stay tuned for the next episode, where she works on the smaller mosaic pieces!
