Dave,

I don't thinkI've seen more than a bazillion of those little brooks with rocks in them hurrying down toward the sea in the area you're modeling, so you may be on to something....

But Mike is the Professional, so I'd go with his version!

Dave,

Did you put a coat of urethane or some type of moisture barrier on that MDF?

I've been rocking out in the mill valley




And I did some test fits of the backdrop on the MDF/hardboard mounts.


Once the rest of the scenery is in place, I'll go back over the rocks with pigments or Pan Pastels.

Well if this was a western prototype I would expect to see some rocks that were rolling but it's not so I'm eager to see how you develop the eastern scene. It's looking good so far. You got a good random rock placement.

Over the weekend I added a few more rock castings then covered the plaster cloth with Sculptamold. Today I painted the rock castings the primer color (dark grey), and then painted the streambed with a craft color "green black". That already gives the look of a streambed, but once it's dry I'll go back over it with regular black to fill in/even out the color.




Then I'll add the scenic base for the stream. On the hills, I'll paint the "dirt" a relatively dark color to more resemble weatherd rock. Then I'll plan sparse bushes, etc, to give the sense of some steep slopes with little ground cover.
