9:19 - Great looking hand carved rockwork (2006)

A movie is worth ten-thousand words when it comes to learning to hand carve rockwork on your layout. Joe Fugate reveals the expert tricks of the trade that give you great looking hand-carved rock faces. You'll be pleased at how easy it becomes once you see it demonstrated.


Great explanation tips and techniques!

Got more in 9-minutes 19-sec from Joe than reading 4-chapters in a scenery manual.

The sign of great skills instruction is leaving your audience with a single thought of "I can do that" when you are done with your presentation.

Thanks again.


For the weathering mixes that involve parts of color to parts of plaster, what is the material used for the parts of color and where can I buy it.

Colorfast colors from Amazon:

Yellow ($7.95, 1 lb): http://amzn.com/B001TDY8FK
Brown ($7.95, 1 lb):  http://amzn.com/B001TEAAJ2
Black ($7.95, 1 lb):  http://amzn.com/B001TDQFQA

Powdered Tempera from Amazon:

Blue ($9.58, 1 lb):  http://amzn.com/B0017OAORC

The tempera blue above is not colorfast. 

If you want a colorfast blue (pricey), then get:
Blue ($24.36, 1 lb): http://amzn.com/B008D1ON7Y

This colorfast blue is also lighter than the tempera blue, so for each part of this blue, also add one part black.
