Paraceratherium »Paul« 1/15th scale | Part Three

The base consists of a wooden plate made of walnut wood. The ground work is done using floral foam. I used the model to create the tracks and then covered the surface with plaster. After a light sanding I added pigments and debris into a fresh layer of white glue. After this has dried over night I added a lighter layer of fine pigments with water and white glue to create the water channels.

Top view of the base showing a meander belt of a
large river with water channels and the
tracks of two Paraceatheriums.

Detail: Alluvial debris like tree trunks and roots.

Overview of the base. It measures 500 x 300 mm.
It has to fit through the doors of my vitrine.

Some more details ...

Tyrannosaurus rex #2 | Part One

I am painting a Tyrannosaurus rex (Krentz, 1/40th scale) for a friend and for fun! :-)
Base color is beige, applied in a countershading scheme.

Added a orange signal color.

Will probably use black and dark blue grey for the main body ...
