“Hi there again!, i just want to share how to modelling rocks in a really cheap way, and in my opinion, i got a really nice results.
Hope you like it.
I only use styrofoam to model and give steadiness to the railway area (white line), and modelling the cliffs too. I covered all the area with higienic paper and white glue more water mixture. (it took some days to dry)…
After that, with the woodland scenics “how to” videos that tells you how to paint, only use acrylic paint and when it get dry, i used all the stuff from the “environment learning kit” from woodland.
Hope you like the pictures, that’s my layout, i started building it 9 months ago, but i got a lot to things to add to it”
This is made from old phone wire. Strip the plastic off the wire and twist it till you cant anymore. Cut into sections same size. After take a piece of very thing wire for to hold the radials and use as a pole. Take clear instant glue and add a very tiny tiny drop and add a radial. Do all the radials and let dry over night. Or for a few hours.Take a very sharp pair of cutters and cut the radials at an angle as in photo.
Paint silver. Cost nothing to make. If you are having problems.Could switch from phone wire. Take black thick thread. Stretch out a foot and hang it. Take a tube of clear instant glue and wet the thread.Dont add a lot just anough to wet it.Let dry. Cut into sections and follow the same way as you did or would do with the phone wire. I cant believe how expensive it is to buy small things like this.
