8th post - Photoshoot Scenery - part 1

Well, i felt like moving away a little bit from the painting and decided to make a nice scenery for the finished minis. So, i'm working right now on a photoshoot scenery for my minis using lotr statues :)
I'm gonna display the images and explain what i'm doing ...

With this pencil box as base, im gonna make some terrain modeling using Black Gesso/Plaster:

And here's the plaster. I used a piece of cardboard to make it the way i wanted with some wrinkles and decals.

And here it is already dry after one night getting free air

Then i brushed PVA glue all over the model and poured beach sand in it.

And that's the end of part 1.
I hope you enjoy the final result (part 2) as much as I do :D
