Very nicely done mate, that H/B well looks the part ( rivet...rivet. Who let the frog in ? ) face 20. For a first go, that Tarp is sweet bud. I got a few tips at rolling out Miliput from a guy on You Tube making Zim. I can`t do a link, but it is all in Japanese anyway. If you put in something like making Zimmerit , look out for a Japanese one in about Three parts it is well worth watching.

The miniature sledgehammer and stones look very realistic Steve, well done

For tarps I find Duro far better than milliput - you can get Duro wafer thin (0.5mm or less) if you are careful

The consistency allows it to sag rather well if you drape it over things

luckily I had my shades on before reading your updates. Nice stuff there, the tarpaulin looks just great. The effect with the eyelets is also awesome.

Looking forward to more.

Hi Everyone

Scottie - Me too mate. Having a lot of fun. Thanks for all the support

Tim - I do like doing all the little bits and bobs. It adds interest. Glad you like it

John H - Many thanks for the pointers. I looked on You Tube and didnt realise how much was on there about Milliputt. Its been a real eye opener and given me lots of ideas going forward so thank you. I couldnt find the link you mentioned but this one was a big help


Simon - face 20laugh I thought the sledge hammer was particularly goodwink. I know you luv your Duro but I just cant get on with it. This is the first dio for over a year and I am only just starting to dip my toe into the world of clay and sculpting. Really encouraged by what can be achieved so hopefully over the coming years I can hone my skillsyes

Jim - Cheers mate. What colour would you go for? I was thinking green

Stefan - Certainly not your engineering masterpiece but I'm glad you like it.smiley Thanks for the support mate

Just been messing around getting the last few bits together. Made a bench out of MDF. Just need to do a couple more figures and then the painting will begin



Thanks for all the help and support. It means a lot

Afternoon Steve - I hated Duro when I first tried it. Wasted most of the first pack

The key is using petroleum jelly to stop it sticking to everything in sight

Well worth persevering

Once it clicks you wonder why you had so much trouble with it

Hi Everyone

Simon - I am happy with Milliputt so will stick with it until supplies run out. Many thanks

Well the painting process has finally begunsmiley. I will concentrate on the base first. So a grey primer was applied to start


The concrete was painted using Mid Grey


The cliff was Sand Yellow. Nice and bright but this will tone down with the washes


Fun was had with the ground. A variety of Dark Sand, Tan and Sand Brown was used to add tones


The rope clasp was in Dark Rust and the stone blocks were Sand Ivory


Then a Dark Umber oil wash was applied all over and left to dry for a couple of hours



This was polished off with white spirit


A combination of Beige and White oils were used to dry brush all over. This has added a good range of dark and light areas


Now it is onto the stonework and the cliffs

Thanks for watching

Paint thumbs up

Just goes to show that there is more than one way to skin a cat (oops, probably not a good choice of analogy with all the cat lovers on here - it's a virtual cat, honestly)

I start with black and work the colours up, you start light and darken down but we both end up with them looking about the same in the end thumbs up

Mr T

Its funny you should say that because I was thinking of experimenting on my next dio by using a Beige wash all over and then dry brushing with Dark Umber. It will be interesting to see the difference.yes
