Ruin Stones 3

Now that the carving of the ruin stones is complete, my attention turns to the base.  Rather than just throw the stones on flat MDF, floor tile is used to build up the stand for each stone.  My first thought was to cover all of the tile with Apoxie Sculpt, with an eye to building up the stones as if on a natural hill.  My second thought was to leave some of the tile exposed, as if to say the stones are on a man made platform.  Adding to that design, I etched in a single line of detail around each tile section.  Apoxie Sculpt was still used to simulate soil build up on the stony platforms & to help cement in the stones.
