    First I’ll show you mine (on 9×12” EPVC sheets).  Click here for more pics:

    They are about 2” tall, and I tried to maintain a 20 to 25 degree gradient to prevent figures from tipping over. I used a hot wire cutter on the foam, and an expandable cutter with a brand new blade. I used Woodland Scenics’ Foam Putty to fill in all the gaps. The Foam Putty is very light, sandable and barely shrinks as it dries.  So no warping.

    Next step is to paint on PVA glue and then sprinkle tile grout on all the top surfaces. After sealing the grout with diluted PVA or Mod Podge I will go on to paint them. Photos will be posted once I get to that step. And I will add figures in the new pics, to help with scale.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Cool modelling, I make my sand dunes out of the foam kneeling pads that are sold in Tesco’s, glued with UHU, covered in poundland PVA and lots of sand.  After dried in the sun for a couple of days, varnished and then painted by dry brushing.

    Interesting!  How well do the “foam kneeling pads” withstand warping?  Thanks
