      Hi Robert

      Thank You, it's fun, but I do think I got a bit carried away here...looks more like it would fit in to a war diorama... ;0))

      It's Lightwieght Hydrocal I use, and I carve it before it cures and get al dry.

      I make very easy molds, I just take my drawing, first i did the casting on the paper...no good, and put in a plastic pocket (? the ones you can keep in a binder?)
      then I just use masking tape and fixate wooden sticks cut to lenght to the plastic pocket on top of the drawing. As for wall one and two I aded carbord pieces to get different depth of the casting, allso sticked with tape. Nothing to it realy.
      I'm sorry I didn't take pictures of my work before casting. But I will do some more castings, then I will do a tutorial...if some one wants me to.

      I put in new pictures in my photo file " A Test shot..."

      Best regards
      Hans Hammarsten

      Hi Hans, is this plaster of paris, or some other material like wall filler which can be purchased at a local hardware store?
      A few years ago I tried with a premade light wall filler over a wooden frame,which once dried was quite hard to engrave/inscribe random stone on to. I have never compleated it.I'll add a couple of photographs of it one of these days.
      for your first try you did a good job.I am not too good at this stuff how did you make your mold.
