let's take a break from ground cover will you? It is time to explain why I cut everything in half! Look at this picture below: there is no way that you can do this with resin, simply because the stuff retracts while drying...
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
What i have been doing all week whenever I got a few time? that's right, reeds, reeds and reeds. I have 48 of them, I don't know how many I will be abble to use.. This week will be water lillies!
So well, that was the theory. duro you see stays very plastic when it dries -i used it so that it would'nt broke when i would glue the leaves on it. It sure works, but then the stuff stays too elastic at those thin-ness rates i am working on! So i did only 4 of them that way. Then yesterday night I did 17 using some thin piano chord -it worked but then they all have the same thickness which is also a bit of a problem...
Products heads up
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)
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
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.
