Beginning Work On The Skull Island Wall

Using a ruler I penciled in the location of the stones on the plywood. Mixing up a small amount of Apoxie Sculpt clay I began applying it to the wall.

After I had a thin veneer of clay in place I began to texture it with wood tools and rubber stamps I created to give it a stone like look.

I had about an hours time before the clay had cured to a point that wouldn't allow further tooling. I would then mix up more clay and start another row of stones. It was slow going but I think the results were worth it. The stones appeared realistic and no two were exactly alike.
