Small - rock outcrop



A selection of pictures showing the construction of a small rock outcrop based on an old CD. The top picture shows the small bit of cardboard used to cover the hole in the middle of the CD, and the small bits of slate picked up from the garden glued into position. The next couple of pictures show the base being built up with poundland filler and PVA glue and sand. Next up the base is undercoated with black matt spray paint, then the final picture shows the small rock outcrop next to one of my bigger hills with its fist coat of paint from one of my trusty match pots. The next stages will be to add some small trees and shrubs and dry grass to the base.

Ah, but what was the CD originally? Finally get tired of Huey Lewis and the News? ;-)

A very fine artiste Mr Lewis, but not really to my style. However most of my terrain CD's have come as free giveaways with news papers and magazines.

All the best
