I think I have found a new hobby to get better at. This is a rocky snow/ice try, and although I did not turn out as planed I just had to finish it. Next diorama will be better in it's whole so to speak. I

Materials I'v used.
Blue insulation foam, flex paste, fake snow, water effects for icicles, relaistic water for ice and earth pigment colors for the rock cliff.. No carving in cement or so like I'm used to, this time I cut all details in the foam directly and coated with two very thin layers woodland scenics flex paste/earth color pigment blend. After I did some coloring with only white and yellow paint as I ran out of all other colors. am very satesfied with the rock/color surface, looks great even in close up.

If you take a look at my chanel there are build steps how I did most of this.

This is the "finished" product.

Maybe some of you are interested in dioramas for gaming, train or so. Would be nice if so to see some of your stuff.

Thanks, I thought you might like this Azhael.

'Those games seems a little to advanced for my brain tho, but it is fun to just build landscapes of any kind to have something to do.

You do beautiful work my friend. The texture, irregularity and detail are very impressive. I was initially going to say that it was a pitty that the lines where pieces of foam had been stacked were visible simply because my eyes were drawn to it but then i realized that i have seen exactly that kind of "broken layering" in large granite formations. As i said, very beautiful work indeed. By the way, you can probably sell this stuff to Warhammer nuts for a pretty penny.
If you were around i´d ask you to teach me so that i could learn another craft to fill the house with xD

Thanks man.

Yeah, in the end I kinda like them. I did some carving to get some shapes difference with the line and that I think gave it a long crack look as you say.
You would have been my first costumer ;) I need to practice whole landscapes first so I know what I am doing., and then after maybe I will search for a warhammer forum where people whant terrain costume made.

Lots of foam sculpting, 1-2 thin coats with a material that wount crack if painted over the foam very thin, and last coloring everything with acrylic( diluted with water),or maybe with color pigment like I did. This methods are almost new to me and will make rock making much easier for my sal setups in the future, not only terrain/diorama purpose.

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?

    Does anyone know if aquacare general tonic is ok for axolotls as a treatment for bacterial or fungal infection?

  • faebugz:
    Hi Lilith, you can check the medications page for a list of axolotl safe treatments. Although if the infection is mild, I would stick with fridge and salt baths!

  • faebugz:
    I believe the fridge gets to about 54°, so if you can replicate that in the tank, it might be okay. I personally would fridge just to make catching them easier, and if the infection is something in the water column at all, it will hopefully die out while they're AWOL (I'm thinking like ich for fish, not sure if axies have an equivalent)
