    Scenography: sculpting terrain?

    Hi there!

    I'm trying to find a way to sculpt simple mud mounts or terrain clumps, using clay, but clay is too heavy. Any alternative?

    I've been told that greenstuff works, but it's not as handy as clay, and way more expensive.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    What size mounds? For making terrain my preferred material is Sculptamold. It is a mix of plaster and cloth fibre. Although directions call for mixing it with water I mix it with slightly thinned paint (everyday craft paint is fine- I use house paint). You can see how I used it in these threads here and here.

    Nice! This looks exactly like what I need!

    I wanted to model things similar to what you can see in these images:

    Yeah, I think it would work for that. You can paint the steel/concrete/whatever before gluing it down and smearing the Sculptamold around it. Once dry, you can then glue sand and loose rocks on it and paint the rubble further.
