Over the longish weekend, I had a chance to knock out a terrain project that I have wanted to create for some time. After completing some alien bugs using glitter paint, one of my buddies suggested the leftover glitter paint would make cool rock formations.
I began this project by using a foam cutter to carve the bits of foam. Then I glued them together with Eileen’s Tacky Glue.
Once dry, I gave them a thick coat of Krylon foam primer. This was one of the reasons I wanted to take on this project — to see if the foam primer works as advertised. They promise that you can spare this over foam and then use normal spray paint without fear of the paint causing the foam to melt. It worked! After spraying the primer on the foam, I then coated the rock formation with Krylon dark brown, camouflage, matte paint. Without the primer, the rock formation would have been a melted mess.
After the brown base coat dried, I then sprayed most of the formation with the green glitter blast paint. I thought that the rocks didn’t look right all green, so I sprayed the lower sections and undercuts with Testors Dirt Mugre rock texture paint. The final result is pretty good, I think. They will be suitable alien-looking terrain pieces for a science fiction game.
