sorry if it been covered before, but couldnt find any tips on another thread about this...
is there any easy way to use air drying clay for basing?
I picked some up this past weekend for fun, and i realized pretty quick that its very brittle, and might be hard to work with for something on the long run.
Seems fine for temporary mold and such, but basing?
here's what i'm trying to do, basically some kind of rocky beach, that will be filled with water eventually...
Trying to get any clue before i go ahead and build it, only to figure out 20 hours later that it is still very brittle once painted/coated/etc...
much more expensive (at least from a quick search at our local store's online site).
I liked the clay, because its very easy to work with, and figured i could get some really nice base done once i learn how to work with it.
I would also go with a core of foam, since it will be ligther. Altough the clay will loose some weight when it dries...
Currently painting the Waaagh! of Warboss Borboss - Goff and Evil Sunz warband
You yourself admitted that clay and it's brittleness is a problem. In fact it was the reason you started this topic. Why are you still thinking of using a problem material when so many other valid options have been suggested?
If you're really adamant on using clay try a coat of PVA after the clay is set. It should bind the surface and reduce chipping.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
