Review /SBS: Making Terrain Texture Using Green Stuff World Rolling Pins - Michigan Toy Soldier Blog

I've made a full review and step by step article on using the Green Stuff World rolling pins to make a texture ground pavement of cobblestones for my RSO/03 Vignette, using simple two part epoxy.



This stuff is just amazing. Incredible results and easy to use. They have more than 20 variations of textures, and we can use several of them for our figure bases, diorama bases and so on. It's very realistic, resulting in aftermarket looking terrain, like Verlinden and so many other great brands. It's your own tool for making texture ground that will last you a lifetime.

Check the full review and step by step article on how I painted and weathered the base, which is easy as it gets, on the link below at Michigan Toy Soldier Blog :

Do the edges line up, in the event you had some very large area to do??

It's so random that you can't notice when the pattern begins to replicate. On the edges same thing, they are random, but the line up should not be hard. You can work in layers, any "joints" just look like damaged cobblestone, even the minor mistakes and uneven areas look accurate.
