I had some fun today painting some rock faces and would appreciate some feedback.
I used hydrocal and a Woodland Scenics rock mold to create the rocks. I'm trying to adjust the formula so I get a little more than enough hydrocal for the mold. For the washes, I used DecoArt Americana: Lamp (Ebony) Black, Neutral Grey, and Slate Grey. I played around with different ratios of paint to water. Each rock was painted differently, either by the order of washes or washes with different ratios. I used the method from Woodland Scenics video of using foam applicators to apply the washes.
The Slate Grey looks a little too light for what I am going for, so I may stop using it. I've got a mold drying and used the leftover to make extra castings to continue practicing on.
One final note before getting to the pictures, if you have ever wanted to try this, go for it! It was a lot easier than I thought it would be with the hardest part playing with the different mixtures.
