My first post in Scenery so hello all you scenery nutters.
For my first trick i shall be showing you how to make pools of mercury. Never done this before so if some of you die it's not my fault...........Right?
This is for my Frozen Chem Planet. So i thought pools of Mercury would be more fitting than pools of, well anything else really. The board is based on the Plastic board GW has released. Some say it's expensive and well it is really but i really don't have the time to make my own nowadays with all the shift work and all. Anyway......
First of all I used poly filler to cover those ghastly skulls and get a flat surface amoungst the rocks for the surface of the pools. The Board was painted and the Surounding rocks will stay black. The base of the pools is Boltgun Metal. Simples!!
When the Boltgun is dry poor GW water effect so it covers all the Boltgun. like so!
Now for the fun bit. Dab small amounts of mithril silver onto the still wet water effect. Then with a brush mix the Mithril in with the water effect. This creates a pretty Swirly pattern. Don't mix the Mithril totaly in as you want the pretty swirly effect. Then leave to dry.
Unfortunatly I don't have a 'dry' picture for you as it is still drying at the mo. Maybe tomorrow.
*Important note. If you've never used GW water effects before don't make it too thick. Two millimeters deep is about as deep as you want it otherwise it takes about 4 years to dry. Always do it in layers.

That looks awesome! I don't understand why GW makes those skull pits part of a board. It seems strange. Anyways good work and cool idea.
That looks good, hope it looks just as good when it dries, this has given me ideas, thanks for sharing.
I like the looks of that. I hope it looks the same when it dries.

I viewed this thread purely on curiosity and wow. That looks great, the silver swirls look great. I really like the look of that. You got anything else planned?
