Here's his amazing work. I would love to make something like that for 15mm:





Q Have any of you tried to do anything similar, with that same outworldly feel? If so, what did you use to carve the features?

My brother (krazyivan) and I have a Mars table… we didn't get quite as elaborate in our foam carving, but we got some nice pieces using sheet insulation foam (has foil on the outside). We carved everything with hobby/pocket knives, applied spackle, textured resin sand, watered down wood glue, gravel basing material, then paint. We got some good looking hills that are virtually bomb proof with less work than it sounds. The drawback is that the foam is exceedingly messy.

Thank you for posting this. I'm going to try & copy this for Ethiopia (& maybe NWF ).

I *think* he did most of that with a couple brass brushes after sawing the foam into major pieces.

There might have been a hotwire saw instead of a drywall saw, but that's merely a less-messy method (and rather pointless if you're using brass brushes to contour the foam after cutting).
