First of all, the above is a pic of the site I’m doing it at. It changes slightly each year, depending on the campground parcel we get. The main difference is that there are spots with more shadow than the one you see right here. Other than that it’s about as idyllic, nice people included 🙂
To start, I cut off some putty and knead it thoroughly. The stuff gets hard within 4 to 5 minutes, and t it’s too soft in the first 2 to 3 minutes, so that leaves me with a modeling time window of about 2 to 3 minutes.
Here you see a lizard modeled on it’s final resting place. Looks like a cave amphibians that never see the day of light…
After it’s hardened out I take the critter and start painting it with acrylics or water color, whatever is around.
An that’s it. critters all over the place.
