The woodland cottage

I don’t do nearly as much terrain as I would like. This was a very short and simple experiment in using a can of nuts as a form to create a round woodland cottage. I basically got a big wad of Sculpey clay and coated the can, then used a stick to score the outline of stones, and then cut out the door and windows, then baked the clay to harden it, and then painted it. The roof is supposed to be a sod roof, it’s made of foam with a plastic insert to fit over the top of the walls. I thought it came out pretty nice and it looks like I’ll be using this sort of technique again.

After painting it I glued on some floral lichen to create the overgrown weeds/ivy look. It looks better in real life, the harsh lighting of the camera flash really exaggerates the paint job and shadows…
