    I Just want to Thank Zebraten again for this fantastic Tutorial. I bought some Flexall yesterday and made this small Dio as an experiment. I have always wanted to make something like these for my figures and now thanks to Zebraten I can. Thanks again!

    Awesome info! I do custom dios for my clients all the time. I like your
    approach because of weight. How durable is foam? I often have to ship these.

    Ive sent several in the mail, so far with no problem. I think as long as it's packed securely, you should have no problem. When the filler dries, it really makes it sturdy.

    I was wondering how you made the square shingle thingies on the left side of the wall here that are breaking off. Great tutorial!

    Cardboard! Some cardboard boxes have a side that's white and glossy. I just drew a bunch of squares on some white cardboard and cut them out and stuck them to the wall while the flexall was still wet. Then they dried to the wall. After they were on, I drybrushed some brown for dirt effect, etc.

    very cool tutorial! I've been saving foam like that from work on and off for a couple of years but never got around to using them yet. I like the tip with the spray cement..I did not even know that was made!! I've used the drywall filler/spackle on a couple of dio's I gave to people but your tips will help me add a fine touch and I can't wait to try them out. And lastly, what colors are you using from what brands? And are you using an airbrush? The colors look great!

    Thanks for the compliments! All the colors I used are acrylics. I get all my paints from Michaels, although any crafts store will have them. I buy whatever is on sale. "desert tan" "mocha" grey, light grey, mixed with some black, etc. I tend to add a lot of water when I paint thos walls. It makes the paint go further and last longer.
