Streckenende: Terraforming

I turned the boring flatness of pink foam into a somewhat hilly landscape today. The first step was to think through what ground features I wanted where, then mark the scenery outline on the module edge, and cut it out with the jigsaw.

Five minutes not-so-gentle carving with the basket rasp turned the pink foam into a rough outline of what I had in mind.

I mixed Scuptamold with brown paint and water, and smoothed out the ground with an artists spatula. The large, wide spatula works really well for general, flowing scenery, while I prefer a small pointed spatula for steeper hills with sharper rock outcroppings like the one at the Tiersteintunnel portal.
