I'm going for the look of an old temple that is being used again. Some of it will look newer, some a little older, and some older than that.
Still have quite a ways to go, but here's what I've got so far.

The materials I'm using are: FoamCore Board, 1 inch Foam Insulation, Packing Mold.

Thanks Lukc. Interesting is good.;)

lostatsea- It has less to do with ambition than time and research. I'd love to see what you'd come up with. Thanks for the compliment.

I just painted the entire piece in a dark brown. Now on to the dry-brushing. :P

looks great you got a better brown than me - I went to light... lol... I wondered - how did you make the bricks? The squares on the ground - are they 1 inch? :)

tilt-The squares on the ground are one inch, and were scored into one inch thick foam insulation (with a pencil). The bricks were done with a process I've been using for a couple years. I bought some cheap foam-core board at the Dollar store (because the paper peals off easier). I peal the paper off one of the sides (for really sticky paper, this involves the careful use of warm water). Then I use a stamping tool, made from an old paint brush. Take a brush, pull out all of the bristles, use needle-nose pliers to make a brick shape out of the metal part. Each brick was stamped individually.

Here's an update! Got one layer of dry-brushing done, to pull out the highlights. Some of the tiles have been painted to create more variation. Next is more highlighting, washes and painting the individual bricks.

Like where this entry is going!! Thanks for the site link at first glance seems very good. I'll get back there after I pull off the impossible and get the T.T.O.C. finished !!

I finally finished! Sorry that some of the pics are blurry. Most of the final process involved Ink washes (to bring out the shadows), dry-brushing (for highlights), and painting the power monoliths.
