The Project Base & Backdrop is sold separately from the Diorama Kits.
There is enough Casting Plaster to do 1 1/2 pours in the Rock Mold (or approximately 5 rocks). You should also have a bit leftover for attaching the rock castings and blending them into the terrain.
Using some creative casting and modeling techniques, all of the rock castings in the Mountain Diorama Kit photo were made from the included Rock Mold.
Here are some tips for casting a variety of rock shapes and sizes. Try these techniques individually or in any combination.
- Fill the Rock Mold 1/4 to 1/2 full of Casting Plaster. Let dry until set.
- Fill the Rock Mold 1/4 to 1/2 full, then tilt on its end or side for different rock shapes. Prop something under the mold to support it while the Casting Plaster sets.
- Break rock castings into smaller pieces.
- Attach the rock castings in a variety of different directions for a unique look, such as sideways, upside down, etc.
A volcano made with the Scene-A-Rama materials included with the Mountain Diorama Kit (SP4111) or the Erupting Volcano Project Pack (SP4281) can be erupted over and over with additional eruption mixture. However, the paint and landscape materials will eventually wear off.
