Rock on! Using more rocks to make rocks....

Hey folks, it's way early in the morning, or afternoon depending on where you live, so that means it must be time to have more fun with rocks!  This next base has a slate texture to the rocks.  As you might have guessed, we are going to start with actual pieces of slate...

These will be pressed into the apoxy sculpt.  Just like the previous base insert, I used some tin foil to fill in this big chunk of rock, cutting down on the amount of apoxy sculpt.

Wrap the apoxy sculpt around the tin foil, put some water on it so the rocks don't stick...

And press some rocks to create the texture!!!

That first rock was a 'platform' for this next rock, so we are back to wrapping tin foil with the apoxy sculpt again.

Almost completely wrapped...

Yea!  Ready to press some texture.

The rock has been 'texturized', and we will carry on to the next step.

That next step is to create some snow piles, so that this base matches the original set.

Stay tuned!!
