How to Model Culverts – the Diorama base
This week we are continuing our series using culverts to show off some basic scenery techniques. This video shows the first stage in the diorama base, the underlying landscape layer. I have used blue foam and tile grout in previous videos:
It looks like it’s not Mil-scale Kathy’s first encounter with sticky grout!
The materials used this week are readily available from hobby and DIY shops:
Plaster Cloth – most hobby stores and many online retailers sell this for art and modelling
Grout – tile grout comes in a variety of colours including beiges and browns
IPA – Isopropyl Alcohol. I bought a litre online from Amazon but many places sell it. I use 99.9% IPA diluted about 1/3 IPA, 2/3 water.
Glue – any PVA or white glue will do. Dilute with water – around 1/5 glue to 4/5 water but it can be thicker or thinner to taste.
