This is my first attempt at making rock molds the "proper" way, 
using liquid latex rubber and gauze for strengthening. 

I have to say the overall process was pretty simple, 
and the final results looked pretty good. 

Next I am going to cast the rocks, 
and then glue them up for the final rock face.

Hi Calvino  :wave:


The ol' skool methods, never fail to impress.  :thumb:

Have you got any photos of the mold & rock making ?


It sounds like the rocks have a place to go already ?

An On30 layout perhaps ... :cool:
