One of the remaining tasks to complete was creating some loose rocks for the interior.
Whenever I'm working with Apoxie clay, mache or wood putty I will always make up rocks with any surplus material.
The collection of these rocks in the above photo on the left are textured to look like marine rocks. The batch to the right are more like ordinary rocks. Sometimes I'll add a stick into the rock as a handle for when it comes time to paint them. For my skull island rocks I cobbled together a few of these leftovers, added some carved styrofoam and finished molding them with Apoxie Sculpt clay.
Here are the finished rocks painted and sprayed with Dullcote.
I thought I'd celebrate nearing completion on this project by having a nice seafood dinner!
After picking my wife up at work we drove to the nautical mile in Freeport.
For our dinner I made salmon cakes, spaghetti with white clam sauce and garlic shrimp. My wife made a green salad and a toasted garlic bread with melted mozzarella cheese. That bread was soooo good!
