Ruins on a hill - First large scratch built piece of terrain

Recommended Posts

Here's the progress of building a small hill with a ruin from layering foam tiles to applying flock and bushes.

Could not get proper EVA foam tiles. so I had to go with the toy ones.

 

Foam glued onto a cork base (I wanted these to be light).

After cutting of the excess foam I put on some air drying clay to smooth out the hill. Cork was used for small bricks and stairs.
Afterwards I added some decoupage stone texture paste to texture the entire surface with.

I added some broken walls and primed the thing black.

Sprayed some gray and brown on to save me time painting the bits by hand.

Drybrushed on dark brown, then Sand Brown onto the dirt. Grays and browns onto the stones.
Afterwards I glued on static grass with PVA glue, some flowers, bushes, moss....

Very nice. Are the larger bricks also made from cork, or from the foam material? They seem to have a smoother surface than the fire pit ones.

Same material, 5mm corkboard.

The firepit I wanted more worn so I cut it with scissors (makes the cork crumble).

The wall pieces I did in long clean cuts with a hobby knife.

Really cool stuff.  

I've not seen many folks making hills with EVA.  It's softer, but also much less prone to chipping than the usual pink or blue insulation foam.

I use it just because I don't want to deal with insulation foam chippings and dust flying around. 


And spraycan primers don't melt it.
