All right, that it; NOW I'm BEGGING!!

Please, PLEASE, P-L-E-E-Z-E sell me some of these goodies!!!

Can I contact you via the e-mail link? I gotta have some of this stuff!!!! My addiction is getting WORSE!
Well, okay, it's not THAT bad, but all BS aside, you, Thod, and yansolo have gotten to the point you're in Stefan's close range for innovation, and darn near there in quality, too! I can say that from having their stuff, and if your work lives up to the LOOK in person, then yours is there as well!

Stefan, WATCH OUT!! These guys could start giving you competition, SOON!!!
At least, in quality, if not in quantity.

Crioux, I seriously am interested in a rockpile and a burrow.

Wow! An entrance, and the walls fit front and back!!!! Please get with DF so they can mass produce something similar for a " Cavern Wicked Ed Set ". The gold and mineral veins are a fantastic idea also. Maybe HA has molds for them so you don't have to use the real stuff?

I would seriously recommend you get Hirst Art molds. They are the best and fastest way to make add-on to DF. There is always something you need that Stefan didn't made (yet!), or sometimes simply to make some unique pieces.

The only limit is your imagination.

Just don't use plaster of Paris, too fragile. Use a strong plaster, like hydrostone. It won't be as strong as DF modules which use Resin, but some plasters are very close.

Unlike the waterfall, theses pieces were fast and easy to do. I simply stack and glue the tiles (from molds 281 and 282), and use some plaster putty to fill the cracks.
Then I dip them in black wash (water and black paint), paint it grey, and then drybrush using a paint mix that matches as closely as possible DF color

I highly recommend using Resin mixed with Grey color. Plaster or Hydrostone will eventually chip and within several years you will have little white specks all over your creations unless your VERY careful. Even the Resin will eventually chip when handled roughly, but because Dwarven Forge casts them in solid Grey the chips are camouflaged...(did I spell that right?)

Like Stefan said, the white plaster will eventually chip and spots will show. Using very strong plaster or be very careful will help prevent those. Or plaster like Merlin's magic are already grey, and there are some ways to color the plaster before casting. Not paint, it won't do, but special powders used to color cement.

But nothing beats the original ... :)

I second using resin, especially precolored resin. It will degrade the molds faster, but unless you're going for mass production, careful use of the molds will still keep them going a L-O-N-G time!
If I weren't such a lazy guy, I'd do that myself, instead of bugging you, crioux, about buying copies of your work. Plus, a one-armed paper-hanger in a Class 5 hurricane often looks laid-back in comparison to all the pots I have going on the stove, if you know what I mean!

Hirst Block are like Lego blocks, with the only difference that you need to glue them. It's simpler than you think. The major drawback is the time needed to cast the bricks if you do large projects. For small projects, it is very reasonable.

BTW, I did send you an email, but go no reply !?
