A new section of scenery was created with my new “tough skin” method. It consists of two layers of paper bags with foam in between. This is made tough by a coat of Rock Powder Pigment and diluted glue. For this scene, #1200 Cajon powder was used for representing my Sandstone Canyon. Knowing that trees were to plant in this scenery, I wanted to have a scenery base with foam to make planting trees and chaparral easy. The areas adjacent to this use the foam method.
