Hello, in this short article I’ll show you how I build my base for forest golem.
First I cut shape of base in styrofoam, it’s 3 cm thick so it should be enough to make shallow river.
Firstly I used brush to apply putty but very fast I took fingers ;)
They have to be a bit wet, in other case will be broken when reshaping. Rots are placed on superglue.
Let’s go to the river and get some rocks and inspiration ;)
Later I start again with roots and other details placed in holes. Trees and bushes are made of wire. I’ve made a tutorial some time ago, just check it out – Trees tutorial.
Ok, so bushes are done, let’s paint a bit base to prepare it for resin. I didn’t have any pictures of pouring resin in this river but also I have a tutorial how it’s made – here you have: resin water tutorial. Later I have add a bit of grass, tufts and other small greens, some insects etc.
And here is last saved picture before finishing. I have never planned to make this article and I made it from scraps found on my disk.
