Guys check out this interesting tutorial for decorations:


Now … I'm sure there's gotta be a miniature gaming terrain application in there, somewhere, just waiting for one of us to to make it happen. Right?

PS. This other tutorial shows the same principle of hot glue texturing, but on other objects:

I would be more inclined to use Easter eggs for vehicles. Some 20 years ago, I painted some L'Eggs eggs and they came out OK. Next time I do something with that shape, I'll glue some things on them for weapons and sensor pods and whatnot.

I see 1/2 the egg being used to make a nice big field of alien eggs, ready to pop. The glue would give them the veiny look.

Good for making dungeon decor as well.

Liquid latex is also good for doing designs on things like this. I have a bucket of Easter eggs that I am going to do up like this …

Does the liquid latex break down and separate from the plastic over time?

Those mounds were made 3+ years ago.

I have used liquid latex on many other, older projects and have not seen it destroy the (various types of) material or come loose and fall off.

It does, however, not last more than a year or so on t-shirts. So if you or your better half put you terrain bits in the washing machine regularly … look out.
