Barrage fire markers
What I'm trying to achieve is the look of a barrage being laid down over a period of time, the top picture gives the best representation of what I'm trying to achieve. The bottom picture shows how I trimmed down blocks of polystyrene into the rough shapes I was aiming for. And then using thumb and forefinger I nibbled away at the polystyrene until just the shape of the explosion was left. This was then hot glued to a 2p coin as a base, giving the very light polystyrene a firm base. Some of the explosions then had paper clip wire inserted into the body of the explosions and then had foliage clumps stuck to the wire with uhu glue.
The next stage will be to glue sand and rocks around the base areas of the explosions, and to start to think about how I'm going to paint them.
