meat..

At least meat! I modelled that bit of meat from a picture. Checking at the local butcher this would be pork (?). The rest consist of a butcher knife made of plasticard + Duro / Green stuff + a bit of thin cardboard covered with CA glue to make for -well THICK cardboard and some very thin plastic bag too..

resin again for mud

The thing is "how to do mud like nobody else" really, there is so much mud around in nowadays panzer modelling ;)

A plaster base

Well after having come through a number of problems when it comes of diorama bases -I don't mean the wooden ones around the scene so that the borders look good, more temporarary borders you have to set so that either resin or plaster don't fly away - I set up building a 1mm thick plastic box.  

leftovers

That's the time of year again. A new facebook as well as my own site diorama SBS. That one should be completed in a bit less than three weeks with 1 post per day except on week-ends. It is small, not my best, but a couple of points should please and prove useful to some..
It doesn't have any title yet except for the rather cryptic "meat", but anyone coming up with a new one while the SBS is going on should tell me :)

Various techniques for the Firebird diorama

Pebeo's outliner (Cernes relief)

I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.

It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)

Flex Pad on horse sculpting

The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices

Metalic pigments from Uschi van der Rosten

That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
