    Awesome... Roc, my friend....impresive figure. My little child (only three years) said about it "Es muy bonito" (It is very pretty). Usually he don't say that about my figures...Sniff! Sniff! :-(

    Please share with me your groundwork (this is one of my main problems when I try to complete my figures).

    Adios ,

    Rafael,my dear friend,you are too kind, I do appreciate your support.

    Your son is very cute, give him a hug for me.

    1- Apllied a mixture of celluclay Mixed with water and Elmores glue to an oatmeal cosistency to wich I addel some acrylic raw umber to tint it.

    2- While the Celluclay is still wet I sprinkled some grind up kiddy litter combined with sand over the entire terrain.

    3- Placed little pebbles and rocks here and there.

    4- For grass I used cat hair.{my cat was not very happy with that} :lol:

    5- When dry I brushed acrylic burnt umber over the entire ground work.

    6- Using a flat brush, I dry brushed acrylic tan mixed with a little burnt umber over the entire terrain.

    7- medium highlight = Acrylic tan dry brushed.

    8 - lighter highlights =Tan + white dry brushed.

    9 -Extreme highlights = Lighter highlight + more white.

    10 - When completely dry I gave the entire terraine a wash of acrylic burnt umber to tie it all together.

    Now here comes the fun part:

    To give the terraine a dusty appearance, I scraped some raw umber pastel and srinkled it on .
    Than I sprinkled some raw sienna pastel, and fo extreme highlights I sprinkeld a mixture of raw sienna pastel +white pastel.

    The stones for the Via Appia were individually made out of A+B putty.

    I hope this helps.


    Roc. :)
