    Glad you like it, mates!
    The groundwork is incredibly easy to do. First, you need a sheet of cardboard, like the one you can cut out from a cereal box. Then, you apply a coat of wood glue to the surface of the cardboard. When it's dry, you apply a coat of plaster mixed with a bit more of wood glue. After that, you leave to dry a bit and then, you star to bend the cardboard until the plaster starts to crack. You can keep bending until you got all cracks you need and help yoursel with a hairdrier. After that, yo leave it drying completely and you cut the desired section for the base with a scissors. Pretty simple ;)

    Gracias, pichilla!
    Lo he explicado más arriba, con una lámina de cartón con cola blanca sobre la que se coloca una capa de aguaplast que se va dejando secar y retorciendo para cuartearla...
