I've seen so many cool figs on bases recently. For a nam base , I needed a little bigger than normal area for vegetation...... I found this dome base at for 5 bucks. It's already finished so I didn't have to worry about warping:

It measures 8" in diameter.
Next I hot glued some floral Dry Foam to the base:

Next....mixing the ground work.I use 1 ice cream scooper of celluclay, 1 TABLESPOON of Elmer's glue, 1 TEASPOON of iron oxide colored acrylic paint(from Michael's) and a TABLESPOON of water . Use this for as many times as to get the amount needed. It was 8 for mine:

Mixing the recipe:


adding some foliage:

I then used a teaspoon to spread some red crushed volcanic rock over the entire base. I got most of my plants at . I also got a few nice plants at Michael's.

Cool looking base and neat tutorial; heh it must have been some length to gather all of the bits for this project, but the tall sand coloured grass popping out here and there compliment the nice variety of plants and base very well.
Guess we better chalk your's up to that list of cool dio bases as well ;)

Super tutorial Butch. I like to see how people are doing the things they dio, instead of just presenting a picture of the finished project.

That base rocks! What a cool selection of vegetation. The base will surely excellently frame any figure you choose to put with it. I hope you don't have little bits of that green floral foam everywhere:) I always seem to spread crumbs of that stuff all over the joint whenever I try and use it.

Thanks for sharing.
