Somewhere is this big mess of photos I have a nice picture of a bag of Sculptamold. The photo is about 3MB and sharp. I spent 2 hours last night looking for it. The one pictured above (I got off the Internet) is way too small to use in an HD video presentation. If you have a bag and a camera handy, and have the time, take a snap of the bag and send it to me. The photo should look something like the picture above only closer to the label. Don't worry about the background I can matte it out. Send to - dave at mrscenery dot com - I will thank you forever.
I'm demonstrating how Sculptamold can be used to make all types of scenic textures. In the picture above I was modeling the area around the state line of Colorado and New Mexico on the Santa Fe RR. The rocks are plaster castings glued in place with hot glue, then the Sculptamold is troweled around the rocks, and while still workable, textured with a wet China Bristle brush. The area is colored using earth colored interior flat wall paint and rock pigment powders. The stones are plaster scraps, glued in place and colored. Everything received a generous dry brushing of dusty white. The foliage is from Scenic Express.
I hope the Timonium Maryland show is good for Jimmy. I used to go to all the Timonium shows back in the 1990's - in those days modelers had more discretionary income. At several shows I was sold out by Saturday afternoon. Then, something happened. The same people who attend every show had bought all the scenery stuff they needed and I started selling nothing. With only a little income it's hard to justify 16 hours of driving and two nights in a motel. I did enjoy the boiled blue crab dinners at Gibby's! Wow!
More cooking today, only this time for Albanian Easter which is tomorrow. Homemade brioche, boned and rolled stuffed leg of lamb, colored Easter eggs, and all the fixin's.
The castings in the first photo look nice. Are they HO?
