    Spent the last few days building this fort out of an old tower from a pirate game, grey artist card and acrylic paste (BTW it dries like reinforced concrete).

    Perhaps a ‘Battery’ rather than a fort? But you’ve done a lovely job

    Any recommendations for acrylic paste? Not something I’ve used, but am now dangerously inspired 🙂

    Cheers for you kind comment Jim, here is the product I used on the fort but I used the white medium rough mixed with smooth.  I bought it from Lidl’s several years ago.

    Winsor and Newton do similar products, just type in acrylic paste.

    Great result.

    At first I thought it was a sand pie bucket but no it’s turns out it’s a whole sand castle 🙂 Pass me my knotted hanky, deckchair and ice cream.

    I’ve been using Galeria acrylic gels for years as a basic material – amazingly sticky and takes colour well. Even better they all seem to last for years in the tubs without drying out.

    Cheers Dan, Andrew for you kind comments.  I second that Andrew however sadly the first one I opened I left the top loose and when I looked at it again it was solid.  Lesson learnt.

    Great work! I am also a huge fan of acrylic gel. Useful for many terrain projects and essential for ship basing as well.
