How to create ground on base...

For ground with different rocks I used: Wood filler, fast dry glue for wood, gravel and two different gravel types special for our modelling purposes. I used wood glue for upper areas ( also to mount rails on styrofoam elevation ). All lower areas was covered wood filler ( it's great filler because it a little granular structure and after dry it looks like dry sand). When I do that I've started to laying gravel. And of course need to press that layer using fingers. After that need to wait for dry, It takes few hours ( my base spent two days near by hot radiator ). And now I've painted it with few different sand colors paints. Now waiting for oil wash and stones painting.


  1. thanks for that tutorial. just one more question - what is the manufacturer of gravel?
