Buildings and Das...

Hi All,

I have been fiddling around with white Das, its funky stuff that dries in a day or two. As you can see my first efforts have had odd results but I will still make a mold so that I can populate my board with streets of terraced housing. I certainly could'nt afford to buy resin terrain and I have deliberatley kept the frontage small, a shop and a pub are on the way along with two different house designs.

I will complete my house over the weekend and paint it up, hopefully it will be useful for a lot of periods, the very British civil war to pulp games (not that I do either in this scale!). I could put up a tutorial but youtube has some great videos on how to do this...thanks for looking.


I will apologise for the picture..my computer finally committed Hari Kiri so I am on an old XP system from my backup computer-does anyone know what programme will allow me to alter a photo?

Thanks.

  5. Thanks Chaps!
    Das is pretty cool air drying clay, a pack cost me £1.99 and I think I will get a dozen house fronts etc out of it...next up is the molding material. Lets hope I can produce some houses for the pennies I was hoping for? Has anyone else done this? Any tips would be useful!
    Thanks again Chaps its good to have good company again.

  7. Looks nice - I like the idea of mold making so that you can manufacture your own streets. By the way, if you are looking for a photoshop-like programme I'd recommend GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/). It's free, easy to use and in fact I use it to crop and adjust the photos on my blog. The on-line documentation is very good too.

    cheers WW
