Don't let anyone tell you building scenery is easy. This section of rock work took all day and just to get it done, I started slopping on the plaster. I used some pre-made castings from my "Basalt Bluffs" scenery kit. Most of them were sawed in half to make low ridges of rock. This effect gives you steps in the mountain side as seen at the base. The tall castings from the rock kit are in the center of this picture. Our #1270 Gray Granite Rock Powder was brushed on the castings and then Zip Texture was applied with our other scenery materials.
This camera angle doesn't show much definition in the rock forms, but gives you an idea of how it fits into the rest of the scene.
