As promised in a previous article I am back with a tutorial on how you can make your own cobblestone roads to add to your gaming table giving it a more urban feel.
As for the rural roads we need some bases and the super flexible parquet mat will work perfect. I cut the mat into the sizes and shapes I want the roads to be.
The next step is to mix a paste of builders-caulk, paint and a little PVA-glue. This will work as the base for the cobblestone pattern and make sure that any chipping won’t reveal too bright a colour.
With all the base materials in place it’s time to work some magic. With a spatula I spread the paste out on the rubber/cork mat, spray it with a mix of water and dishwashingsoap and then I grab one of GreenStuffWorlds awesome rolling pins and roll it over the paste applying moderate pressure all along.
Vola, you have now got a cobblestone road. All you need to do is to let it dry for a couple of hours and it good to go. If you want to put a little more effort into the project you can base coat the roads and add a couple of layers of dry brushing. That’s it, quick and simple. I hope this will help you do cobblestone roads in no time. Enjoy the process and see you soon – Soren.
