So much great new additions, Al  :o

Love those supporting 'shrooms.

Thanks, Tobias. I am happy you like them. I have a bunch more of the Supporting Cast underway, AND six three plus inch diameter bases are in the painting process.

I like the rock part on the bases!
A few words how did you make it, please?

The rocks are made from plumber's epoxy putty. I shape it & texture it with a snap off knife...drawing the blade across the surface gives a nice rough finish.

Tree bark?

I have used tree bark, but not for quite some time.

Your bases are equally enviable as the miniatures on them! Cheers!

I've seen that technique used frequently enough, but that usually comes off as being visibly just hacked up with a knife. But your version looks very good! Good enough that we were all guessing you were using something natural!

Thanks, Fram. I am glad you like the results. I have been using the plumber's putty (Master Plumber from Ace & True Value is the best); I gues it is a matter of practice.
I did try some new colors on the rock.

These green ones with the red cap seem as if they are made of sugar!
Delicious sugar candies!
But I'll stay away from eating them, as previously stated  :)
