hi, just HOW did you make those sponge trees, they're amazing - I'm going to try and start a little terrain project on my own but I lack experience and would use any advice when it comes to materials and techniques (like, I get that if they're bath sponge trees they're probably made of bath sponge, but how do you paint it, for instance - or do you buy it in those colours already?) Thanks and keep up the great work ;)
Ahoj a děkuji.
Yes it’s just a regular bath sponge, it’s old and gross and I’ve found it while cleaning the house.
As for painting it - I’ve tried to paint it whole and failed, so I just chipped a little bit of it and just dumped it in a little pool of paint and made a huge mess in a process. Repeat until trees.
The only tricky part was to get colours right. I’ve ruined a lot of my paint that day.
Thank you! I was afraid it would require too much paint… will probably try regular (cheaper) acrylic paint first… I’ve been working with something called “icelandic moss” so far, since it’s the only usable thing I found in my local hobby shop
and although it looks kinda good, it’s still, well, moss (and it’s incredibly fragile, I’ve put it on my dryads and now I’m afraid to actually use them in games not to damage them *facepalm*)
Some time ago I wanted to use that moss for trees and bushes, but it was near impossible to get it here. Or I just haven’t tried hard enough. And not that long ago I’ve found out about this stuff, which is basically just bits of bath sponges.
Still, I am done with terrain, I probably going to do one more “project” and I am done. I suck at it and I would rather stick to painting
