|This is the way things looked for quite awhile. Not much to see here but pink styrofoam.|
Adding the travertine terraces created by the geysers and hot springs. These are just foam-core and card-stock shapes. The copper tubing is for the erupting geysers.
Rocks sculpted with Sculptamold. A new landmark has been added: "Ambush Rock" carved from Balsa Foam.
Here the travertine terraces have been shaped and detailed with Liquitex acrylic modeling paste. I let that dry overnight.
Everything painted with artist's acrylics using my usual methods. The blue-green color is meant to be intense. The scene is meant to evoke Yellowstone's Mammoth Hot Springs and Grand Canyon's Havasupai.
